Who are we? Time to meet the team…
I first fell in love with the fluffy white stuff on a school ski trip aged 15. Since then I was lucky enough to go on regular winter holidays with friends for many years. It was always my intention to do a winter season but commitments always seemed to get in the way. That was until 2013 when I was made redundant and decided to make my dream a reality. I soon found a job as a chalet host, being a keen cook with a fair amount of hospitality experience, and as they say, the rest is history.
I have lived and worked in Les Gets every winter since, honing my skills in the kitchen and on the mountain. Now, my main passions are cooking tasty food for our guests and hunting out fresh powder, and I couldn’t be happier. If you ask nicely I may even tell you about some of the hidden stashes in resort!
I was lucky enough to go on family skiing trips from an early age, I’d been on a winter holiday long before a summer holiday. I may not have been the best skier back then, but I loved it! In 2012 the opportunity arose to do a ski season and I jumped at the chance. I started out with a big tour operator as a Resort Representative in Les Gets. I fell in love with it all, right from the very start; the job, the place, the lifestyle. I’d been in resort for about three weeks when I knew I wanted to stay. That first season led to three more winters in Les Gets, and I can’t imagine spending them anywhere else!
Whether I’m chatting to guests, heading up the mountain, or eating fondue in one of our favourite places, life is never boring in the mountains.
Between us, we have over 11 years’ experience, working for both private chalets and large tour operators. It’s safe to say we know how to make sure you have the holiday of a lifetime! And we can’t wait to share our Winter Wonderland with you!
After being rescued from Reunion by John and Libby nearly 2 years ago I have loved my new life in the French Alps. The winters are my favourite, and you’ll catch me playing in the snow or chasing snowboarders almost every day. Many of you have already met me, but I can be as big or little part of your holiday as you wish! But I’m always on the look out for new friends to give me belly rubs!
