JOIN OUR GROWING TEAM
Join the Cool Runnings team! We are looking drivers for the winter seasons of 2021/22 in the 3 Valleys and the Tarentaise valley of the French Alps.
We are looking for experienced professional drivers with full-time and part-time positions available. This is to transport our clients to and from airports and ski resorts in the French Alps. All positions run the length of the winter season; November/December 2021 until April 2022.
Our office is based in Val Thorens but we have drivers based in other resorts and down at the bottom of the mountains.

HERE’S WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY…
Perfect, can’t fault the service at all.
Comms were great, all the staff were very helpful and everything want according to plan – probably the smoothest and easiest transfer I’ve ever had.
