The Skiology Team

dom
Lover of Star Wars, powder runs and all foods beginning with S.

Product director : Dom tries to spend as much of his time as possible making sure that our product is delivered sustainably and consistently. For example the cleanliness of our chalets. We have cleaning checklists to provide consistency and 80% of the products that we use are environmentally friendly so that we deliver sustainably too. Dom is the person in charge of implementing systems and ideas in line with our values. If you have an idea for developing our product please do let us know.

Sales & Marketing and finance director : As a small business owner Dom also keeps an eye that the numbers are going in the right direction, sustainably and consistently of course!

Internally to the company Dom is also in charge of health and safety.

steph
Dom’s wife. Lover of family meals, organising and sparkly things.

Operations director : Head of the Skiology family, Steph’s time is increasingly being spent as mother to our family as our family increases in numbers! Steph is an incredible dotter of i’s and crosser of t’s as director of operations Steph oversees a lot of the details of your holiday from airport transfers to cots being ordered.

Internally Steph is also in charge of fairness within the team.

Luke

Dom’s brother founder and in charge of the menu. Lover of gully runs, plat du jour’s and M.Cing.

Food and beverage director : In line with guest feedback Luke annually reviews our menu for the set menu chalets. Annually re-developing 30% of it so that it is the menu is always up to date , fresh and keeps you coming back for more!

Sophie
Celiac chef of the year, master baker and the most inline person with Skiology values that you will ever meet.

Office manager (Sales, operations, food and beverage) : Sophie is most likely the first person that you will speak to at Skiology. Sophie is in charge of selling you and your group the holiday that is right for you and managing the details like organising your transfers, lift pass etc

Effectively Sophie lines up a great holiday for you, that she has co-developed with Dom and Luke. Then hands over the delivery of the holiday to the in resort team such as your resort manager and chalet host.

Sophie has been on the team in various capacities for years, I am sure you must recognise her?… She is our longest serving chalet girl from our old Chalet Du Bois to Chalet Deux Freres, in fact she has covered in most of our chalets! She was also our Les Carroz resort and logistics Manager who would have picked you up from the airport, welcomed you into the van with hot chocolate, driven you safely and kept you entertained… you know Sophie!

Back for their THIRD season with Skiology, Pete and Karolina are returning to their stomping ground in Les Carroz. After taking a year out working in the Scottish highlands, their return to Skiology is not just exciting for us but also their previous guests who sang their praises so highly.

Karolina:
  1. What would your Mastermind subject be? Costa Coffee brand standards – after 6 years of making coffees to get me through university I can make an ultimate flat white in my sleep while describing step by step what I’m doing.
  2. What do you wish your Mastermind subject could be? Molecular gastronomy – I am not going to hide I am a science geek and since I begun my adventure with cooking I am fascinated with why things are happening the way they do.
  3. What is your party trick? I can turn a kitchen towel into a swan! Or elephant, sometimes with a bit of luck even a monkey 🙂
  4. What is your top cooking tip? When making pancake mix, add melted butter to it ( I add 125g butter per 500ml of milk) – to me this is what makes a difference between a good old pancake and a irresistible, mouthwatering one that leaves you asking for more.
  5. What is your best bit of ski holiday advice? Always allocate time and budget for a Chartreuse Hot Chocolate on the top of the mountain :))
Pete:
  1. What would your Mastermind subject be? Brighton & Hove breakfast eateries – with so many independent places to eat out, we made our mission to sample them all during the two years we lived there. Our Sunday breakfast became so regular, we even started a blog about it 🙂
  2. What do you wish your Mastermind subject could be? The Mountains – I wish I had the ability and knowledge to look at a single snowflake coming down from the sky and knowing what weather conditions are up the top!
  3. What is your party trick? Give me on a dance floor and you’ll see 😀
  4. What is your top cooking tip? Always have a sharp knife life is a lot easier with one. Oh and always ask Karolina first before doing anything in the kitchen 😉
  5. What is your best bit of ski holiday advice? Keep your lift pass in the left hand pocket of your salopettes – it’s the best place for the card reader and also you’re less likely to leave them behind after àpres ski!

Behind the scenes

Skiology mother Prue (inspiration, teacher and chief sales agent).

Inspiration – Mum is the inspiration behind Skiology’s passion for food and always makes sure we go back to the Alps with a doggy bag and handful of recipies to try.

Teacher – if it was not for Mum, Dom might still think that you can cook a burger in a toaster.

Chief sale agent – As years have gone by the contents of Mum’s handbag have gone from wetwipes and sweeties to Skiology flyers and business cards. Mum is hugely supportive of Skiology and lets face facts, if Mum was not proud of what we do then we would probably do something else !



For too long Dad has been AWOL from this page. It is safe to type, no Dad = no Skiology and not just biologically since he is our father! Having two creative sons can be likened to having a food processor without a lid on. As chief Skiology accountant Dad keeps the lid on it all and as an entrepreneur himself he both guides and teaches us. Dad falls nothing short of being our inspirational leader.
Raymond, a very successful G.M of 5 star hotels is always on hand for advice whether it be management, setting standards, translating, maintenance, the list is endless! Sue has a bottomless knowledge of how to keep the chalets looking tip top. If you see both Steph and Dom one evening then you know where Chloe will be, with Grandma and Grandpa. Thank you both for all your support.
