Job Type


There is no other experience quite like working a ski season. Working with Ice and Fire offers you the chance to spend a winter season in La Plagne in the beautiful French Alps. You'll have the opportunity to ski or snowboard for 5 months, to meet friends for life, to learn new skills and to live and work in an amazing environment.

Working a season isn't a holiday though. Working in a chalet is tiring both physically and mentally, and requires hard work, dedication and professionalism. You will work as part of a chalet team to provide breakfast, afternoon tea, cocktails and canapes and a four course evening meal 6 nights a week. You will be responsible for the cleanliness and tidiness of the chalet as well as organisational jobs such as ordering the food and wine. A warm, friendly and professional welcome of your guests is a must, as is a positive can-do attitude.


The chalet chef role involves providing a cooked and continental breakfast, homemade afternoon tea and delicious, well presented four course evening meal 6 nights a week. The focus is on restaurant quality cooking and presentation, in a relaxed homely environment. You will also be responsible for menu planning, food ordering and the chalet budget.

The successful applicant will have proven professional cooking experience; a food hygiene qualification and experience of menu planning, kitchen cleaning, budgeting and cooking for people with dietary requirements.
