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.

Sophie

Office Manager

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!

2020-2021 Team

Sam

Resort Manager

Skiologist extraordinaire Sam is back for his 4th winter season as Resort Manager and we could not be happier. Sam (and his resort assistant Merlin) will be a familiar face now for so many of our repeat guests in Morzine and Les Carroz. Since day 1, Sam has been Skiology through and through and has worked tirelessly over the past 4 years to help Skiology meet and improve our green pledges. Responsible for sustainable product selection in the chalets, monitoring energy efficiency and just all round being a bit of a green god, Sam has been central in supporting our key charities Cool Earth and Mizizi Africa. When Sam is not whizzing down the mountains, he can be found running ultra marathons or exercising his talents in photography.  Welcome back Sam and thank you for everything you do 🙂

Behind the scenes

Meat the team morzine

Dom and Luke’s Mum

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 !

Meat the team morzine

Dom and Luke’s Dad

Inspirational Leader

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.

Meat the team morzine

Dom’s Parents in law

Steph’s parents

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.

Steve our Morzine maintenance man

Steve the maintenance guy

Someone has to keep the chalets looking tip top and that someone in Morzine is Steve. Steve has the patience and tenacity of a saint. There is nothing so far that he has not been able to fix. Steve tends to come round while guests are skiing so not disturb them so chances are you may miss him. You will see signs of his handy work throughout the chalets though and if you are lucky enough to meet him he has some great tales.
