12 Aug STEP ASIDE DOLLY
The ‘working 9-5’ ship has truly sailed, so whether you’re a seasoned hospitality professional or just keen for a career break, a ski season with Le Chardon Mountain Lodges offers a whole new world of opportunity.
Each year we welcome staff back and recruit anew for our core Val d’Isere based team of 38 staff. All share one magic ingredient: a passion for extraordinary customer service and a broad smile!
IS IT TIME FOR A CHANGE?
The moment is now to swop your urban landscape for a glorious mountain view and the restorative qualities of mountain air? Pass up Pret a Manger for the real delicacies of Savoyarde cuisine where cheese is produced from the cows who graze just beyond your doorstep? Say “Au Revoir” to the sweaty bus ride, in favour of the open top chair lift entre amis. A lunch hour poised on top of the Solaise Mountain, topped with a chocolat chaud for good measure. Late nights trading stories with fellow seasonnaires accompanied by a cheeky ‘digestif’…
