Work for an award-winning company this winter!

The first step in applying for a ski season job should be to fully understand the company - to make sure we are right for you and that you are right for us. So, to get you started, here's a bit about Le Ski, what it's like to work for us, how to apply and answers to some frequently asked questions.

About Le Ski

Le Ski are a family-run company, founded in 1982. We  have won awards for our chalet holidays which we have successfully run for 40 years. We operate catered chalet holidays in the French Alps in three resorts - Val d’Isere, Courchevel 1650 and La Tania.

We have 31 high quality chalets which all vary in style and size, catering from 2-22 guests. We pride ourselves on having very loyal guests and staff who come back to us year after year... we must be doing something right!

What's it like to work for Le Ski?

You would work with us in one of our three resorts in the French Alps. The winter season runs from the end of November until the end of April. You would work as part of a close-knit team in your resort, lead by experienced managers who are on hand to support you.

We run in-resort training at the start of the season so you’re fully prepared for your job. During the winter you will have 2 days off a week and work split shifts so there’s always plenty of time to have fun on the slopes!
