Well its that time of year again folks. Midsummer and time to start dreaming of 2012.

If you like the idea of living in a chalet and skiing all season, you might find this offer interesting, which has proved popular for the last few years.

We are a family of 4 living in Switzerland, we have a chalet that we only use on the weekends and swiss school holidays.

We would like to find a couple of helpful volunteers to help look after it for the winter season, not just as house keepers but people who love to ski as well.

Simply speaking, that means helping out on weekends in the chalet and getting the rest of the week for yourselves.

The chalet is in a well known resort in central Switzerland. Local Skiing (70 km sq) is literaly 50 yards from your door.
and at your disposal.

Accomodation is inside the chalet in a fully segregated 2.5 room appartment ,and at your disposal. During the week you can use the full facilities of the chalet when it is empty.

Typically we would arrive most weekends on a friday night, and leave Sunday evening. We would expect you to help with things like, sharing cooking, some housework, and occasional child minding (ages 6 and 9) on slope and off, and other helpful activities. During the week you can do what you like.

Occasionally we may have house guests, and school holidays mean we would stay for longer periods which is an extra work load, but not a disaster.
Im pleased to say that even on the busiest weekends mostly there is time enough for everyone to get on the slope - sometimes together - sometimes not..

I would like to make clear this is not a job offer or salaried postion, there are plenty of Tour operators offering 6 working day week jobs in commercial chalets, if that is what you are looking for.

Ideally this would suit a couple looking for a career break or just a change of pace, who want to spend a season in the alps.

Please feel free to ask any question either by PM or in thread.
