The Alpine Ethos team arrive in just under 7 weeks, so it is a good time to introduce them to you. They are a really wonderful group, with lots of experience, great enthusiasm and big smiles. They can’t wait to arrive in Meribel and welcome all of our lovely guests to our chalets.
Meet Katie, Dan, Susie, Amelia, Jodie, Charlotte and Issey.....
Katie joins Alpine Ethos this winter with husband Dan. The couple have recently left their UK jobs and have been travelling all around Europe this summer in their motor-home so they will be full of exciting stories to keep you entertained. Katie is very experienced in both management and customer service, having run her own successful B&B, so she will be a great asset to the team. Taking a well earned break from the rat race, Katie is really looking forward to spending the winter in the mountains. A super friendly, people person, Katie is really looking forward to ensuring our guests have the best ski holiday.
Dan joins Alpine Ethos with wife Katie. The couple have spent the summer roaming Europe in their motor-home, and are looking forward to a winter in the Alps, a long held ambition. Dan is an experienced engineer so is well placed to fix all our little maintenance issues. An experienced driver, and friendly soul, he will shuttle you to and from the piste with ease and a smile! Dan and Katie are keen snowboarders and are looking forward to a winter of riding.
Susie has completed 2 winter seasons as a chalet host, in both Courchevel and Chatel, so she joins us with great experience. She is a passionate cook and loves to try new recipes. Susie has co-founded her own women's ski wear brand, so she is your girl if you are looking for slope fashion advice! Susie has spent the summer in Meribel so she is a font of knowledge for all Meribel related questions. We can't wait to taste all her delicious food this winter!
Amelia has been skiing and snowboarding since the age of 6, and has dreamed of working a winter season. Whilst at Birmingham University Amelia was part of the Ski and Snowboard Society, where she was an avid racer, so keep an eye out for a speedy girl on the mountain! Amelia has a wealth of customer service experience from working at wedding venues to cabin crew for a leading airline, so our guests will be in excellent hands.
Jodie has a Masters degree in Criminology from Durham University, and has travelled and worked in hospitality since graduating, including volunteer work in South Africa. Jodie has a real passion for hospitality and has experience of private functions, private dining and most recently she has been working for a premium wine cellar. This will be Jodie's first winter season and she is really excited to be spending 5 months in the snow!
A recent graduate from Kings College London, studying a BA in Liberal Arts, Charlotte joins Alpine Ethos with good friend Issey. Charlotte has spent the summer working as a chef on a yacht, honing her culinary skills and trying out new menus. Charlotte has skied since she was 4 and can't wait to spend 5 months in the snow, an expert skier she is hoping to work on her snowboarding skills!
Issey has recently graduated from King's College London with a BA in Liberal Arts, and has studied in both Japan and China. She joins Alpine Ethos with her good friend Charlotte. Issey has a passion for food and has completed several cookery courses and is looking forward to sharing her delicious recipes with our guests. Issey is a keen photographer and worked on both editorial and commercial photography projects whilst at university, hopefully she will go home in the spring with lots of beautiful snowy pictures!
