About Stanford Skiing

Are you a keen skier or boarder? If not, would you like to be?

We are a small family-run company and it is important to us that our staff have fun and enjoy their season. Most stay in contact with us for years after, coming back to Megève for holidays or coming to our out-of-season staff reunion parties. 

The company is run by Elizabeth, based in the UK, and her father John.  John and his wife Kathryn spend the season in Megève and are trying hard to retire, so Rory took over the resort management in 2015.  We would love to have you on board as well.

But where is Megève?  If you’ve never heard of it, you’re not alone. Megève is the most charming resort in the French Alps and the French like to keep it a secret.  It's just 75mins from Geneva, next to Mont Blanc and close to Chamonix.  Megève is a traditional Savoyard town, with cobbled streets and a pretty medieval centre. You certainly feel like you're in France rather than an extension of the UK, which is surely the point of a season!  There are plenty of bars for après ski and the newest branch of the famous Folie Douce at the top of Mont Joux has certainly livened up the après scene as well.

The Megève ski area is huge and your lift pass will cover all 445km of pistes and 113 lifts. There are runs to suit everyone from the nervous beginner to the powder hound.  Beginners soon graduate to the winding confidence-building greens of Mont D'Arbois. Long blue and red runs suit intermediate skiers, snaking through the trees and offering fantastic views of Mont Blanc. Black slope skiers are challenged by the steep terrain of Mont Joly and speed freaks by the Women's World Cup downhill run at Côte 2000.  There is loads of powder skiing and off piste which, unlike places like Chamonix, doesn't get tracked out.

All in all a great spot for a season.  We have vacancies for Chefs, Chalet-Hotel Managers, Drivers, Resort Assistants and Chalet Hosts so do get in touch.  We look forward to hearing from you!
