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 :-)

@nixmap,
Im seriously interested. My wife soon to be ex wife has kicked me out, very unfairly i believe. Gambling is an illness that im battling to over come(i should be about sorted for xmas 2019), so in theory its not my fault i pawn'd anything of value in our house(i could have possibly been your neighbour had the acumilator come in). I wont be alone my teenage son with be my wing man on our Swiss adventure. He's been dragged in with the wrong crowd and gets out of Glen Parva the beginning of December just in time for some winter snow fun. Hes a bit of a handsome charmer if you really get to know him. Just a little down on his luck and who knows we could be family not just friends if he hits it off with your daughter(maybe she could write to him while he's still in his unfortunate position)
A couple of questions from my side before i agree to the new friendship/possibly family connection.
1) The NDC works both ways yes? there are a few folks whom would like to meet up with me again but something are best left behind me. So i can trust you not to tell anyone my true location(even under duress)?
2)how far is the local bookies from our chalet?
3)does my drink driving ban count in Switzerland?
4)could you loan me a few quid? ive just had a red hot tip on a guaranteed winner

is there the fact any positive thought ever in your head?

what is so wrong with giving people the chance to have the run of 2 luxury chalets for the whole season in the expectation that they contribute to some household chores and some cooking every now and again.

Nothing IMO. But clear this up for us...

You have 2 luxury chalets, 1 in Gstaad and 1 in Davos/Klosters. Depending on snow conditions you choose one of these to go to for weekends/holidays?

And you supply your “volunteers” with transport so they can travel between them according to your plans? And when you’re not there they have free run of their place? And they have lift passes for both?

If that’s the gig I think it’s a good one. Only been once but Gstaad is certainly a very nice place with decent skiing if not very challenging. Never been to Davos/Klosters but if it was good enough for Prince Charles assume it has a fair bit going for it.

Don't understand why there is always so much hostility. If you don't like the offer don't take it and move on. Personally I can see the appeal for the right people. It seems preferable to the average chalet job.

1) Not aloof at all, our guests and volunteers party, dine and ski together , or not, as they choose.

2) There are plenty of ways to get staff a Job, and as many places to look for them. This is not one of those.
Volunteers have always had a passion to ski, and enough free time to enjoy, and a positive attitude that it will work out.

3) It is neither take nor give , its about caring and sharing.

@nixmap, I think what dode meant is that you come across as aloof on the forum and that you do not do much caring and sharing on the forum. I agree with that view, although I have no objection whatsoever to your alpine enterprise.

I think it's because reasonable people read it and generally have no reason to post.

The hostility probably comes from a fairly small number of people who likely bring it with them.

It seems a good deal to me on the face of it. You live rent free with a lift pass for the ski season for weekend work.
However the alarm bells would ring for me if one of my girls spoke to me about this offer. OP you seem very sneaky and sly in the way you go about it all. You answer questions like a politician. You're on a pubic forum and winge about people commenting in ways you dont like.
A generalising sweeping statement here(maybe you/maybe not you). Wealthy people can be difficult, demanding, over powering and bullying. High power jobs with big pay to be able to have the lifestyle your portraying, are normally filled with hardfaced cut throat b@st@rds.

Given that this 'offer' was first made in 2008, it seems to me to be a reasonably 'safe' one

and every year there's been a scouting mission for fresh applicant's with no one ever coming forward to tell us all how amazing it was.
It very well could be a truely rivetting experience but a few simple questions unaswered and dodged just seems a bit strange.

I've always assumed they're on strict NDAs. Which makes sense if this is a tax dodge or similar, otherwise I can't think of a reason.

I dunno, I think maybe they're just private people and don't want their wealth/homes/families/friends/parties talked about online?

Anyone genuinely interested can PM and find out a bit more, but I can understand why nixmap is a bit cagey.

For all you know they're famous, which would be a good reason to keep things as low key as possible. (I doubt it, but you never know).

Can they? I think that's what is the most puzzling thing. I understand that the successful "candidate" (or whatever you'd call it when it's "not a job") would sign a NDA but nobody, in all these years, has ever posted anything about even having preliminary discussions with him. And you'd think someone on snowHeads, even if it's only one single, solitary person, would have met him, or met someone who had met him. If he's so gregarious and loves meeting different people, likes he claims, how come he never says where he is and offers to meet up with us poor plebs on our one week away, for a drink and a ski tour round his resort, like most snowHeads who have their own place do? He may be a lovely, genuine guy but on the other hand he may be an complete tosser. How would we know Puzzled

Apply, and find out? We've done gigs like this over the years and they’ve always worked out fine. No reason to think this one won’t too. These jobs are for people who are willing to take a bit of a risk. If you aren’t, simply don’t do it.
