After an interesting but ultimately unrewarding 10 years working in banking in London and Geneva, I made the move into full time mountain life and have never looked back. When I am not looking after our 3 energetic and hilarious children, I oversee the commercial and business change side of AliKats. I also helped set up a local environmental charity called Montagne Verte, along with Kat. Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn

Following an unfulfilling career in media sales in London, I was looking for a new challenge when I met Al and I already had one eye on the mountains. Since 2010, we have been living here in Morzine and I now have a life creating interesting menus, recruiting and managing our wonderful team looking after our 3 gorgeous children. Al and I are also on the board of trustees for local environmental charity Montagne Verte

I’m stoked to have joined the AliKats team this month as Head of Sales. I’m grateful to be able to call Morzine home; enjoying the crisp mountain air each day – biking in summer and snowboarding each winter!

After hearing about Al & Kat’s work at both AliKats and via the local environmental charity – Montagne Verte, I knew I wanted to become part of this team and help make a difference. I’m excited to be able to join AliKats mission to create joyful mountain experiences for all whilst protecting the health of the planet. Fancy joining us in this incredible landscape?

Let’s chat.

I’m Carine but you’ll get to know me as Cate. 2 years ago I was fortunate enough to be a chef in the beautiful Chalet Bizet. After a 2 year break, the mountains called again, but this time I’ll take on the role of operational manager. The new crew for winter 2023 – 2024 arrived a couple of days ago and I am already super proud to call them my team. Together we will do our very best to give everybody the full exquisite AliKats experience when on holiday. I can’t wait to meet you!

Hector is the youngest member of the AliKats team but is very keen to learn. His enthusiasm and energy are contagious and he can often be found urging the team on with encouraging barks. While Hector has never skied or snowboarded before, he is hoping to find his feet on the snow this season. He is also very much looking forward to meeting our wonderful guests.

Hi, Rich here.  I have previously worked as an engineering geologist, gardener, business administrator and massage therapist but decided that 2022 was the year to grab life and spend a winter in the Alps.  I loved being in the mountains so much that I’m back for more.  You’ll find me on two planks rather than one, enjoying everything from groomed pistes to fresh powder.  I am really looking forward to meeting lots of new people, helping our clients have an amazing holiday, and exploring Morzine and the wider Portes du Soleil region.

Working as an eco-chef in Antarctica, the Congo rainforest and London’s sustainable food networks, I set the bar pretty high for my cheffing experiences. Spending a winter in the French Alps has been a goal since learning to ski and snowboard in Antarctica in 2022, and once I came across AliKats I knew I couldn’t work anywhere else. AliKats’ ethos aligns with my insatiable appetite for creating delectable, sustainability focused food that brings joy and memorable dining experiences to fellow outdoors enthusiasts, all in a nurturing work environment and adventurous setting.
