Will and Lara Sussman – Owners
Meet the chalet hosts.
In charge of Les Griottes we have Steve and Catherine.
Catherine is 24, blessed with a Northern Irish accent and Steve is 28 and from Wiltshire. In their free time they both like being outdoors and when the sun is out they enjoy packing up a tent, bikes and heading off for an adventure. Catherine is a keen pianist and occasional guitarist, whereas Steve’s music-related talents are usually best witnessed on a dance floor!
They both enjoy a party, experimenting in the kitchen and trying out new recipes on friends. Steve says: “We are so excited about spending this winter in Meribel, and can’t wait to meet a lot of new faces and improve our ski skills!”
In La Petite Silene we have Lucy and Abi.
Lucy hails from Wakefield, and this is her 3rd ski season. She’s coming to us straight from completing a Diploma at Tante Marie Chef School, so we are expecting some culinary treats to appear on your dinner table.
Abi is taking a career break from being a primary school teacher and will be welcoming you with a broad smile, and a “nothing is too much trouble” attitude. She’s currently travelling around Asia with her boyfriend Charlie.
Charlie, Abi’s other half, will be your driver – he’ll pick you up at the airport (if you’ve booked one of our transfers), and he’ll drive Marmotton guests to and from the slopes. He’s also a primary school teacher on a career break, and a qualified ski teacher – so expect some tips on your way to the slopes. He’s also a Chelsea fan, but we won’t mention that.
We’re thrilled to have Harrie coming back for a second season. She’ll be looking after you in Snowbel. This is her second season with us, but we’ve lost count as to how many seasons she’s done in total. She’s a true pro, and delights in cooking and cleaning to a very high standard. She’s into yoga and snowboarding, but as far as we know, not at the same time.
Finally, another returnee to Meribel Ski Chalets. Josh worked for us 5 years ago in Marmotton with his friend Joe, and they were a real hit with our guests. Now Josh is back, this time with his girlfriend Hannah, and they’re back in Marmotton. This will be Hannah’s first season but she’s a keen skier and loves cooking and can’t wait to get started. Josh and Hannah met at school and lead a very active lifestyle, hiking, cycling and going to a Crossfit gym. They are dedicated, enthusiastic and hard-working and really want you to have a very special and memorable holiday with us.
