    Just wondering if anyone else was thinking of working at a ski resort during their gap year, and which companies they are going to work for. Just feeling a bit lost and wanted to see if anyone could shed some light, or someone i could research jobs with.
    Thanks x

    If you apply to a major tour operator your going to get your arse kicked for little pay. My best advice, go work in a bar.

    Im currently looking to work as a chalet host this upcoming season. I know that Crystal Ski (even though being a big tour operator) are good. But im just trying my luck online and applying to anything I can.

    Oh well unfortunately I got rejected at the recruitment day, because of my lack in cooking ability. Anywhere else that's blindingly obvious to apply to? And what did you do in the ski season?

    Thats funny they usually push for everyone to take their EXPENSIVE AND UNNECESSARY cookery course!! I had the sense not to do it but it they teach everything you need to do to cook the menu on it.
    I was a chalet host.

    My advice to you....don't be a chalet *****, try and find a bar job. More ski time and free drinks.

    Do universities see bar work as a cop out compared to chalet work though? that's all that's stopping me from trying to get a bar job!

    well it depends how you want to live your season really. Chalet hosting is full of pre-uni people, most bar work in the alps is for over 21s anyway
