What They Say…
“Spending the winter months working in Flaine was a fantastic experience. I had never worked a season before until I visited Flaine and I can’t speak hghly enough about my experience, the resort and the people I became friends with. I landed a job in Flaine with one of the main tour operators back in the UK and worked as a chalet host. If you are looking for a great experience and want to get out of the 9-5 grind then this is a great way to go!”
“Flaine is a fun resort and a great place to spend an extended period of time. I worked a full season in the resort as a ski resort rep and I enjoyed every minute of it. Yes the work was hard and the hours long but the experience was fantastic and we always found plenty of time to enjoy the slopes.”
