Going Snow-where!

A Cantab is one of 7 brits barricaded in a ski chalet demanding in protest at not being paid.

A Fitz grad is one of seven Brits who have barricaded themselves inside the ski chalets in protest at being dismissed without pay. 

Aanya Madhani, who graduated last year, was one of the group working for ski-tourism company Skithe3V, who abruptly terminated their contracts after a busy period.

The chalet hosts, who include three recent graduates and two gappies, were informed that they would not receive any wages for the three week period worked.

Now stranded with no money for new accommodation or a way home, they’ve taken matters into their own hands.

Hell no, we won’t go: Les Menuires 7

Instead of going quietly, the five students and two older employees refused to vacate the chalet until they get paid, setting up a Facebook group in protest, raising awareness on the radio and online.

Skithe3V is owned by British businessman Mark Ridgers, who has previously served a prison sentence for fraud.

It is believed that Skithe3V pulled a similar stunt over the Christmas holidays when they employed a large group of youngsters before dismissing them without any wages as soon as the busy period was over.

An attempt to negotiate with Mr Ridgers broke down earlier today, so the group decided to make the most of the wonderful weather conditions. Several of them are skiing this afternoon and the rest are relaxing in the chalet awaiting the company’s next move.
