If you're considering a move to the mountains, but are still undceided as to whether it's for you or not, here are the main reasons why I think you should go for it:
Professional Development - You'll be responsible for ordering, budgeting, menu planning, last minute changes, dietary requirements, kitchen cleanliness etc. These skills are invaluable and are great to add to your CV. Depending on the size of the company, you'll probably be working on your own so the learning curve can be steep, but it does come, and it will be worth it.
Guest Interaction - Believe it or not, guest interaction is a great part of the job. A lot of chefs spend their working life in a closed off kitchen with a load of other like minded chefs (or not so like minded, which may be why you want to try a season!). If you're not naturally a 'people person' thats ok - it's not an onslaught of chatting and questioning while you're preparing dinner like you might think. Most of the time, guests are out skiing while you're prepping, so you can get your work done in relative peace. When guests come back, as long as you're organised then you'll probably find you enjoy the chit chat. Guests are genuinely interested in what you're cooking, your experience, your background etc. More often than not, it's a very positive environment to work in.
Creative Freedom - Most chalet companies who hire professional chefs allow a large degree of creative freedom with menu design. This is great if you're the kind of chef who is constantly trying to bribe friends and family round to cook new dishes for them, because you don't get the chance to try all your ideas out at work! Unless you're a head chef, restaurant work can be restrictive from that perspective so if you fancy unleashing your creativity (and being paid for it) then chalets could be the way for you.
Future Employment - You may be lucky enough to meet people who love your cooking so much they offer you future work. This is the sort of opportunity that would be hard to come by in a restaurant at home, and all the more reason to put yourself and your skills out there.
Ski Time - Quite possibly the best part of being a Chalet Chef, is the skiing. This doesn't really need any explanation - if you already know you love skiing/boarding then great, you get to do it almost every day. If you've never skied before, you're potentially at the beginning of a serious addiction...
All of the above are part of the reason I'm on my way back for a third season. It is by no means a walk in the park, but the perks of this job far outweigh the cons.
