Successfully combining adventure and outdoor activities with relaxation and fun - we offer a wide range of fantastic small group tours and weekend holidays.
We are currently recruiting for outgoing professional individuals with a mature outlook to join us in various roles for the Winter 2008/09 season.
Karibuni and Ski Weekender are a small independent ski and snowboard chalet operator based in the French Alps, near the village of La Clusaz. Our chalets are comfortable and homely with a very friendly feel. All rooms are ensuite and we also have big lounges, TV rooms and spacious dining areas as well as a large, well stocked bar and a fully functional ski hire room in our main chalet. The skiing here is excellent with over 220km of pistes. Offering everything from beginner runs to off piste descents, there is something for everyone.
It is essential for our guests to feel cared for and welcome when on holiday with us, whilst knowing that nothing they ask for is too much trouble, and everything will be delivered with a smile! The key to this is our carefully hand-picked Ski Team. Our team are the face of Karibuni and are consequently crucial in maintaining our strong reputation as great holiday providers within the industry.
Our visitor book from the last few seasons emphasises how conscientious and friendly our staff are whilst ensuring the high standards of hospitality our regular returning guests have come to expect from us:
