The Bar Person is one of the most visible positions in the chalet. Spending most of your days with guests, you are the front-of-house and the main point of contact with Ski Miquel. Ensuring guests have a good day on the mountain and enjoy their evening in the bar is all part of the job, but creating an atmosphere in the chalet is an art. It is your job to ensure our guests are not on just another ski holiday and to make sure that they have a true ‘Ski Miquel Experience’.
This is a job for people who are willing to work hard and enjoy all that the mountains have to offer. If you do, you will be rewarded with a job that gives you lots of time on the mountain as well as interacting with guests, making it perfect for someone who is outgoing and loves to meet new people.
This is an outline of the general tasks and requirements that are expected of our employees:
Your normal day would include taking guests out at 9am every day (apart from your day off and transfer day) and skiing with guests all morning, stopping for coffee and lunch before taking them back to the resort after lunch. On the evening you run a bar service from 19:00 until 23:00 whilst also helping with the evening meal service and any other tasks required.
As ski guide you are required to be able to address guests’ diverse needs, assessing the guests’ ability to join the guiding groups, and having expert knowledge on the resort and runs is essential. Tailoring each day’s guiding to the group’s ability is essential, and understanding how to reduce any risks to the guests to ensure their safety at all times, but most importantly this job requires you to be friendly and outgoing to build a relationship with the guests, so that you provide a service that is great fun and the best part of their week’s holiday. You must be more than competent at skiing, and somebody who loves being out on the mountain and does not consider this as hard work.
The Bar Person role requires you to run a complete bar service for Ski Miquel guests. You are required to keep the bar and lounge area clean, tidy and welcoming. You are also required to take orders for drinks, as well as monitoring stock and taking payment from guests at the end of the week. You will inevitably be talking to guests and answering any questions they may have.
- Friendly and engaging
