Fresh Tracks is more than just a cookery school...


Chalet hosting is about so much
more than just cooking, so it makes sense that as a chalet hosting school, we teach you more than just cooking...



Our Course

Fresh Tracks will give you the experience, skills and confidence to become an epic chalet host, whatever stage of life you're at.

Our course covers everything you'll need to have a great season in the mountains.

“Amazing week in Cornwall with Fresh Tracks! I went with barely any knowledge or experience of being a chalet host... but I now feel confident to start my job this winter.”
— Harriet Cooke, 2017


Getting a Job

We help you land your first winter job. We receive requests from companies looking for hosts, and we provide references, give CV advice, and can even guarantee an interview with Ski World, subject to meeting their requirements!

Getting a job can seem challenging, but we make it easy for you.

“For two seasons, Steve and Becky have trained our new chalet host chefs, giving them the best start they could possibly have. I could not imagine being trained by two better people if you truly want to understand what it means to get the best out of a season as a Chalet Host/Chef.”
— Phil Melia, Recruitment Manager & Co-Owner, Collett's Mountain Holidays, 2016


What is chalet hosting?

Chalet hosting is a juggling act: one minute you’re hosting a dinner party, the next you’re scrubbing toilets.

But chalet hosting isn't just a job - it's a lifestyle, and there are  fantastic rewards which come with it...

“The Fresh Tracks course focuses on a wide spectrum of hosting skills including food hygiene, menu planning, budgeting, welcoming guests and dealing with challenging situations, cleaning, preventative maintenance, and…the all important cooking.”
— Sam Thomsett, 2017



We take lots of photos here at Fresh Tracks, and whilst on season, so that you can get a real idea of what we're about.

After all, what's the point of having a great time if there are no photos to show for it..?

“Had the best week with some great people @freshtrackschaletschool... If you’re thinking of doing a ski season I would highly recommend these guys! So stoked for the season ahead!!”
— Jake Carder, 2017
