Job Type


Ski Cuisine is a small, family run chalet company operating solely in the beautiful Alpine resort of Méribel situated at the heart of the impressive Three Valley Ski area; the largest ski area in the world. Our five chalets are ski-in, ski-out and have cosy interiors.  We are renowned for excellent quality cuisine and personal service, provided by professional and personable staff.

As a chef at Ski Cuisine you are in the privileged position of designing your own menus within a generous budget. Very few chalet companies allow this preferring to create set menus for their chefs to follow. We are renowned for high quality cuisine and therefore employ experienced chefs with flare and ambition. We encourage your creativity and talent to continue growing.

Working in a chalet allows you the freedom to cook your own dishes but also teaches you vital budgeting and housekeeping skills which may serve you well throughout your career. Our chalet kitchens are well equipped and although space can be a challenge in the domestic environment of a chalet, you are in close contact with your guests affording  you immediate job satisfaction when they enjoy your meals. This close interaction very often also leads to more job opportunities. Akin to all this you are able to ski or snowboard six days a week and enjoy season life to the full.
