Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@no.strife_vanlife, i thought i posted the link to the site: https://www.capfun.co.uk/campsite-france-rhone_alpes-plan_fernuy-EN.html

They do have people working there as seasonal staff.......so you never know, they may need someone to do a bit of work that would fit in with what you want to do?

I see it also says it has a free bus route to the piste.

Re this - you park literally at the bottom of the piste with a gondola and chair lift. The chair lift also takes pedestrians (free) up to Tignes Les Boisses (5 mins), from there, there is the ski bus which runs round the 'resorts' including Tignes centre. The buses run before and after the lifts.


The chair is now gone. There is a bubble there now but it doesn't go up as high. Not sure what time it runs until.

The whole employment thing could change dramatically after March 29th. If companies must pay French minimum wage next season (likely regardless of Brexit deal) they will almost certainly not be giving out lift passes too. You may also need a work visa, to work in France.


What do you mean by a bubble. Is the a gondola. Has anyone got anymore details ie, running times etc. Its looking like TLB is the most viable option at the moment.

Also Kenzie do you have any info on how you can approach such jobs.

Thanks for the replies peeps

One of the considerstions is the choice of lift pass for the season and it's cost. Also, although they are big ski areas, any other of the ski areas will ordinarily add to that base if you want to explore a little.

Have you looked at Maurienne valley, Val Cenis area? The season pass there may give you more variety as it's spread across five different ski areas all at the far end of the valley. It's also used summer time with alot more camping areas, some of which are obviously used for winter. Parking is generally not restricted there so much more relaxed overall. It's cost base is lower than Tarentaise so maybe give you different economic model with less demand on income.

Far less obvious seasonal workers contingent there, don't know if less competition would make it easier or more difficult to find work.

The Val Cenis and 4 other nearby resort season pass (Eskimo) is incredibly good value if bought early.

Somewhere around 350 euros if i'm not mistaken.

Couldn't find current pricing, this one is one year old.

It's a great valley to ski and much less distorted by the big ski rush of some.

I watched a video a day or two ago of a VanLife camped out at the bottom of the venicular is BSM. He was in an Airsteam, but pretty sure he didn't pay anything. I'll dig out the link.

Also, KiteVanMan is in Morzine for his 2nd winter. I know his girlfriend is working cleaning chalets, so definitely worth hitting him up for some info.

Ummm, tell a lie. He stayed at Huttopia in BSM but looks like it works out at around 700 euros a month because of the facilities. If you want to check out his video he's on YouTube as Andrew Ditton.

Good luck with the build.

You can negotiate a discount at Huttopia if you stay more than a couple of weeks.
The big advantage there is the inclusive elec.

@no.strife_vanlife,
For Brit tour operator jobs check the websites of the TOs. For lift company jobs check the likes of STGM (Tignes), STVI (Val D'Isere) etc
