Be Inspired: The Chalet Host Classes with Wyld Cookery

Your route to the mountains – let The Wyld Cookery School help you realise your dream of a chalet job with their incredibly tailored cooking classes.

Cooking and skiing are two of our principal teacher, Fran’s favourite past-times and combining both meant a personal heaven for numerous seasons! Now Fran enjoys passing on her tips and experience through the Wyld Seasonaire Course.

The two-week long course promises both cooking classes and chalet management as well as lots of fun. The Wyld Cookery School has a 100% record in placing our Seasonaire students with jobs in ski resorts. This is because we take time and care getting to know the students and maintaining a close relationship with the companies at the forefront of the ski industry. These cooking classes aren’t solely for perfecting your skills, they are your guaranteed passport to the mountains!

Don’t just take our word for it – one past Seasonaire student Madeleine blogged:

‘The Wyld Cookery School (WCS) was an excellent stepping stone towards my ski season, they gave me so much help in preparation for both applications and the season itself. I took part in the course in September, but even while I was sending out applications in June Fran was great at giving me advice.’

‘My time at the WCS was brilliant, it was super informative as well as very fun and really boosted my confidence. Fran was very helpful preparing us for the ski season even giving us all a Chalet Bible, which really helped calm my nerves before hosting paying guests. The course taught me loads about organisation and time management as well as, obviously, cooking. In my opinion these are the three most essential qualities needed to have a successful and enjoyable time in the Alps.’
