Our Meribel team
Our resort staff members are key to the enjoyment of your holiday. So we spend a lot of time recruiting people who are able to deliver our high standards and meet our guests’ expectations.
We pride ourselves on offering a genuine and intuitive service. Our staff are enthusiastic, hard-working and professional people. We take pride not only in making sure that our guests have the best possible skiing holiday, but also in being a great company to work for. We hire people based on their skills, experience and attitude and expect the highest standards of work from them.
Alun, Resort Manager
After studying a Business Management degree at Southampton Solent University, which was particularly focused on the Travel and Tourism industry, Alun decided to take a 'year' out.
Alun’s year out began with windsurfing for six months in Greece before taking to the slopes and joining the Meriski team as a driver, where he quickly became hooked to both the slopes and beautiful surroundings, as well as to working in such a diverse fast paced environment.
Alun then completed a further two seasons with us as Head Driver and two as our Resort Manager. We are now delighted to welcome him back for his sixth season with us.
Richard, Head Chef
After several years of working with some of the UK’s top chefs in a bid to expand on his talent and knowledge, Richard’s second passion, skiing, naturally led him to completing a successful season with Meriski.
Enjoying his first season based in Impala Lodge, Richard was motivated by the challenges of cooking at altitude and incorporating the ever-changing available ingredients into his menus, advancing his expertise. He then became our Head Chef in 2016/17. When Richard is not on the slopes, you can expect to find him sampling the dishes of some of Meribel’s restaurants – L’Igloo being a firm favourite!
We are excited that Richard will be returning for his fifth season, to maintain and expand on the culinary experiences that our guests receive.
