FANCY A WINTER IN THE AMAZING ITALIAN DOLOMITES?
Collett’s Mountain Holidays, on behalf of Garni Bracun in Corvara, South Tyrol, are looking for a friendly, polite, enthusiastic, organized, focused & resourceful person for the winter of 2021/2022, starting ASAP!
Please note, this job is only open to EU Nationals.
If you have EU Nationality (with a love of skiing?), this is a once-in-a-lifetime working opportunity in the popular resort of Corvara, located on the celebrated Sella Ronda in the vast Dolomiti Superski area, one of the largest in the world.
The Chalet/Hotel requires someone to be part of their hospitality team to contribute daily to the warm and welcoming atmosphere they provide to their guests. At heart, this is very much a hospitality job and would be very enjoyable if you have an interest in skiing and genuinely enjoy looking after people on a ski holiday. Through the presence of your personality and tailored advice, the aim is to help your guests get the most out of their precious six days in the winter wonderland which is the Italian Dolomites.
The job would involve the following:
Each morning at breakfast and in the evening from about 5 until 7:30 you would be available to advise your guests and help them with any questions they might have.
In the evening we invite guests to the hotel bar for a drink before dinner, for what is known as ‘Office Hour’. In a very sociable atmosphere, you would help everyone make their ski plans for the next day, using suggested routes and itineraries which Collett’s have put together to showcase the best skiing in the area. Building up your own local ski knowledge is key, and on your arrival, you would be encouraged to get out do our suggested routes so that you have first-hand knowledge to pass on. Not too much hardship for a keen skier!
During this time with the guests, you might also be helping them to sort out other problems which have come up such as accommodation issues, requests to book restaurants or ski lessons, information about local shops, pharmacy and doctor’s opening times and other local activities, etc. On occasion we will even accompany guests to the Doctors in the village if they have a health problem, to give them as much support as we can.
Every Sunday (our Changeover Day) you would also be required to act as a representative on a coach to and from the airport, dropping off and picking guests up to bring them back to the Dolomites. On your return to the hotel, you would help your guests to settle in, pass on essential information about their stay, and accompany them to ski hire which is a 10-minute walk away. You would collect pre-ordered ski passes for everyone and have these waiting for guests in their rooms on their arrival.
The job would involve working alongside the small Garni Bracun team and liaising by email and telephone with the UK-based company Collett’s Mountain Holidays, through whom the guests will have booked. You would be given training at the start of your job and shown how the information would be emailed to you each week with details of arrivals and transfer reports etc.
Inevitably you would need to be very flexible to deal with other things that need to be done during the week, but there is a lot of free time built into the job which would allow you to ski.
Accommodation would be provided in Garni Bracun, or possibly in another guest house in a neighboring village, called Haus Valentin. The team running this guest house is also looking after Collett’s guests, and we would hope you would enjoy getting to know them and spending time together in your free time.
