27th March 2018

Introducing John Jenkins, one of our fantastic drivers and an infectiously smiley Scotsman, who swapped life as a subsea engineer in the waters of Aberdeen and Azerbaijan for a mountainous existence in the snowy French Alps.

CHALET TEAM CLOSE-UP: Leandri & Cate, Chalet Killy

24th January 2018

Chalet Killy, Sleeps 8, Val d'Isere  There’s more to season work than poaching a few eggs and poncing around resort in a fluffy gilet (although that happens too).

Keeping guests in high spirits…

23rd January 2018

Because we understand that the typical Fish & Pips guest tends to be a discerning sort of character – (explaining the impeccable choice in chalet company!) and because there’s nothing quite as deserved as a cheeky cocktail following a tough day on the hill, we’ve selected a range of premium spirits for your enjoyment, to be transformed on request, by our chalet teams into a plethora of d...
