Snowcoach operate two hotels in the French Alps offering friendly, good value skiing/snowboarding holidays. We have a large number of returning clients, year on year, which we think says a lot about our holidays!

 

We are looking for a Kitchen Assistant who would relish a position with the opportunity to ski/board, who is not afraid of hard work and has the commitment to exceed client expectations, as well as having a sense of fun.

 

The ***Hotel Terminus Mont Blanc is located in Le Fayet, St. Gervais situated between Megeve and Chamonix with extensive skiing at St. Gervais/Megeve/La Giettaz/Combloux/Les Contamines. The hotel has 36 en-suite bedrooms, a games room and a hot tub and steam room.  Open all year round.

 

The Hotel l’Aigle is located high in the Maurienne Valley at Valmeinier 1800 with spectacular views and direct access onto the ski slopes, with a new chair lift and additional ski runs opening this season.  The hotel has 40 en-suite bedrooms, a games room and an outdoor hot tub overlooking the mountains.  We have just been awarded a Certificate of Excellence 2019 by Trip Advisor.

 

Working abroad for a season is a unique life experience and gives you the opportunity to gain some great career and team building skills with like-minded people. It is a lifestyle choice and not suited for those who have major financial commitments – but it gives you the opportunity to be abroad without having to fund it yourself and you get paid in the process!
