Courses are held in a relaxed enviroment for an average of 6 students, in a real chalet lead by a seasoned tutor, Melanie, following many years of not only cooking, but creating menus, training and also recruiting chalet staff. There will also be guest tutors taking sessions to impart their knowledge and expertise during the week.
The Snow Cooks course covers all aspects of hosting and cooking in a chalet, with menu planning, hygiene and budgeting as just a part of the curriculum, as well as tips to get the most out of your season in the chalet and on the slopes. By the end, you will confidently be able to apply for chalet cooking posts, knowing that you have the ability to work efficiently in a chalet serving delicious meals leaving your guests happy! Our goal is to help place all students and our success rate has been extremely high. We assist with job applications - before your course and during the week. You will be kept up to date with job postings and in some cases, employers, whom we have direct contact with, will drop by to meet potential staff. Having been in charge of chalet staff recruitment for the past 25 years, I can guide in finding the right company to suit you and help before you arrive with your cover letter and CV.
There will also be a chance to have some fun during your time off if you so wish - outdoor activities include hiking, via ferrata, acro-branche, white water rafting, parapenting, mountain biking, horse-riding....
We tend to keep to the hours you would work in a chalet allowing you afternoons free.
With regards to COVID 19, we anticipate extra cleaning duties in the chalet, even more regular hand washing and hand sanitizing plus individual students will have their own room (no extra cost)
