Wanted: Passionate Skiers and Boarders

Do you love skiing or boarding? Could talk about ski holidays all day? We’re looking for highly motivated, passionate and fun people to come and join the leading ski sales team in the industry. Our ambition is to be the best company to work for in the ski industry as we know this means you’ll give our clients the very best service. We are looking for ski seasonaires or passionate skiers who are looking to use their experience in ski resorts as a stepping stone to a career in the Ski Industry in the UK.

Graduates or experienced sales people are also welcome to apply but a keen interest in winter sports is a must. You may think that the time you have spent in resort has no meaningful application in the UK job market. You would be wrong! Your time and experience in the Alps is invaluable to us and our clients who demand detailed first hand resort knowledge and guidance before booking their ski holiday.

Chalets in Zermatt reviewed

Having spent a couple of years working in chalet holiday sales, I’ve had the good fortune to stay in some amazing chalets....the Bellevarde Lodges in Val D’Isere – ski in/out with hot tubs on the balcony, and the Taiga Lodge in Meribel with its cinema rooms being previous favourites.  Fabulous though these are, they don’t really come close to the accommodation I’ve just stayed in on a recent trip to Zermatt.

Skiing Chamonix on and off piste

I’ve just returned from an excellent stay at the Chalet Grands Montets in Chamonix.  Newly finished, this chalet has been completely rebuilt from a shell that dates back to the 1940s. Finished to a high standard, it offers a modern twist to the traditional chalet interior. There are five en-suite bedrooms, a large dining and living room, under floor heating, great views from the balcony plus the all important hot tub. Ideal for groups and large families looking for quality with an affordable price tag, this is great value for money! 

The wonderful resort of Hetteyi

This small resort nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, the resort offers skiing so completely different to what most of us have experienced. Not only is the setting quite spectacular but the culture is very different. No Fondue, Genepy or Jaeger-bombs here. In fact, Après-ski in general is not as you may have experienced in the past, no alcohol whatsoever but this is made up by the fact that the delicious lamb kebabs (a local delicacy) are the only equivalant at the favourable exchange rate of only 7p a pop.

A week's Ski Holiday in Zermatt and Verbier

Having worked in the ski industry since 2004, I've seen a lot of resorts. In fact, until last week there were only 2 major resorts in our programme that I had never visited. I won't tell you which one I'm still to experience, but Zermatt has now been ticked off the to-do list. The only question I was asking myself is why has it taken me until the age of 30 to get out there?

Nightlife and skiing in St Anton

Badly cooked sausages, Euro Pop, lederhosen and dodgy dancing. Until early January this year, that was about the extent of my knowledge of Austria. I joined a few friends to hit the outstanding resort of St Anton, and my eyes were opened! Verbier last season was the first time I’d ever ridden outside France and I came back with mixed feelings on the place…St Anton is a different story.

BA cabin crew strike

We are extremely disappointed that Unite, the union that represents the majority of British Airways (BA) cabin crew, has announced that it intends to take strike action.

We are currently considering our response to this strike threat and what action we will need to take to minimise disruption. All our flights are operating normally at the moment.

We will be updating this page with further details as soon as it is available.

Skiing in Chamonix

Chamonix. The name itself rings all the superlatives; the highest lift, the longest off-piste run and the most awe inspiring views the Alps have to offer. A Mecca too for the extreme off-pisters...but is this all this resort can offer? I think not; I think this is a ‘must –ski’ place for most, for a good number of reasons. <--break- />

Simon Seeks - A new website dedicated to passionate travellers

If you’re part of the Travellers and Bloggers community, you’ve probably heard about the new travel website Simonseeks.com from the entrepreneur Simon Nixon. In one of their recent blog posts, Interactive Resorts has been recommended as a great site to visit when trying to find your perfect skiing holiday.

March Festivals in Meribel

Spring skiing has always had its advantages – the days are longer, the lifts are open later, the snow is still good and the temperatures are warm enough to sit outside at the end of the day enjoying a cold beer or a vin chaud! This season the resort of Meribel is providing extra incentives for skiing at this time of year by hosting not one, but two festival extravaganzas!
