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 Dom know, if you are staying for a week he will pop by during the first few nights of your stay.

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!

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.

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!

Coner & Harriet

Chalet Manager & Chef: Season number 1 with Skiology!

Although their first season with Skiology, this is not Coner and Harriet’s first rodeo having bossed last winter season with exceptional results. Coming to us following on from a summer season on the beautiful Greek Island of Zakynthos, these guys know exactly what it takes to deliver exceptional customer service and the key to happy guests. We are so excited to welcome them onto our team this winter and completing our new Skiology family for Winter 2019-20! Welcome on board guys.

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.
