Chalet Chef in the French Alps
Ski Famille & Ski Vertigo

Ski Famille & Ski Vertigo run 31 catered chalets in the French Alps with vacancies for chalet cooks/chefs available in Les Gets, La Plagne, Val d'Isère, Tignes & Les Menuires.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a confident Ballymaloe graduate to run their own kitchen and demonstrate their experience and love of food to a wide age range of customers.

You must be well presented, highly organised and comfortable working under your own initiative to manage a kitchen and ensure meals are cooked to a high standard.  You will work with our Head Chef and Resort Managers to source and order your supplies, being mindful to budgets. 

Ski Famille & Ski Vertigo guests look forward to returning from a day on the slopes to a well-presented homemade meal in a beautiful chalet; your skills, ability and attention to detail can make their holiday. 

Our chalets sleep between 6 and 30 guests and most kitchens are open plan, allowing you to share your passion and mountain experiences with the guests. You will provide breakfast on 5 mornings, prepare a cake for them to enjoy after skiing (6 days), and canapes and dinner on 5 evenings.
