Our Team

We are all really proud to be part of the Rude Chalets and Rude Lodge Morzine team. We are all mountain devotees, whether we’re boarding or skiing in the Winter, or riding the MTB trails in the Summer. We’re here to make sure you get the most out of your stay in the Alps. Come and meet the team in one of our friendly, great value chalets or take advantage of the super cheap accommodation in our Lodge. Come on over and meet the gang!

Kirsten Paterson – Alps General Manager – sales, marketing, admin, HR – Orchestra Conductor!

What I do at Rude: I make sure all the cogs are turning in the right direction and that everyone is smiling.

Happiest when: On two wheels, on top of a mountain, with my trusty four-legged sidekick.

Favourite food: Venison, cheese, chocolate – but not all together!

Best thing about living in the Alps: being able to bike / ski / run in to the mountains during my lunch hour, then finish the day with a beer and a view.
