Hucksters Budget Ski HolidaysHucksters Budget Ski Holidays

Say hello to our newest team!

Meet our fab bunch of seasonaires...

A Hucksters holiday wouldn't be complete without our amazing bunch of staff. Always on hand with a big smile, ready to help. They're the first people you meet when you arrive and the last you say goodbye to when you finish for another season. All our staff are passionate about skiing and snow boarding and really do love their jobs! Well, who wouldn't when you get to work in one of the best places on earth?! This season we had six new faces join our team in Vallandry and one face you may recognise back again. Meet Joe, Leanora, Steve, Ben, Holly, Bee and James...

Best thing about the season so far? Amazing powder - we've had so much this season.

Skier/ Boarder? Skier

Best thing about the season so far? I get to pursue my passion for skiing.

Where are you going from here? I'm a chef in the summer - cheffing is another of my passions. This year is a a little taster for me... I'm thinking about coming back next year with my partner as well!

Ben

Ben

How would you describe yourself? Lay back, let loose. (words to definitely live by :-) ).

Skier/ Boarder? Boarder (the only one in this team!)

Best thing about the season so far? Aiming to nail a back flip (we'll let you know how he gets on ;-) ).

Where are you going from here? I'm out here with my girlfriend, Holly, so after the season finishes we'll be off travelling in our camper van across Europe. I can't wait to head to the beach!

Holly

Holly

How would you describe yourself? Lives for adventures.

Skier/ Boarder? Skier

Best thing about the season so far? The tree runs in Vallandry. They are so beautiful this time of the year.

Where are you going from here? Hit the road with Ben in our camper van and travel across Europe at the end of the season.

Bee

Bee

How would you describe yourself? Quiet, wild one.

Skier/ Boarder? Skier

Best thing about the season so far? Nailed a baguette. (This might sound odd but there is a technique to making the perfect technique – hint, add lettuce first to stop the bread going soggy from sauce. Bee's now a master at making the perfect baguette quickly.)

Where are you going from here? I'll be heading off to South East Asia to work there for the summer.

James

James

How would you describe yourself? Always here to work the snow. (James is great at coming out at short notice if needed)

Skier/ Boarder? Skier

Best thing about the season so far? I'm a Firefighter in the London Fire Brigade and get five weeks holiday off a year, so this works perfectly for me to come out and ski!

Where are you going from here? Back to the brigade.

This is the 4th year we have stayed at Mont Blanc, we have opted for the en suite accommodation in PMB. If you are looking for 5 star luxury look else where as you will be disappointed, if however, you are looking for a fun friendly atmosphere where you can wear slippers or ski boots for a week then...

I look each year to find a better value ski holiday and fail. I love the staff, the resort and the accomodation. And the coach, to me it makes flying very uncomfortable and un civilised, Dont change a thing Hucksters you are providing exactly what I want. Roll on next season......

Gilbert Leaver

We have travelled with Hucksters as both a school group and a family for an incredible 18 years. Never have I worked with a company who is so flexible and accommodating to individual needs. The ski and board options are exciting and varied to suit all abilities, from novice to the extreme, from door...

If you're looking for 5* accommodation where chalet girls wash your feet and sing you to sleep, just stop reading now. If you're not one of the privileged elite, but still want to see snow once or twice a year, head here. I cannot really fault any aspect of the holiday. If you want a low cost skiin...
