About Reach4TheAlps

The hard working team at Reach4TheAlps

Reach4thealps is owned and run by Gina and Marcus Ewart. Both from Scotland, they were lucky enough to learn to ski as kids in Glenshee (Gina) and Cairngorms (Marcus) and still to this day argue over which resort is best!

gina & marcus

Gina did a ski season in Chamonix cooking when she was 20 and caught the ski bug and love for the mountains. While they both had “proper” jobs they always missed the mountains and continually talked about moving to the Alps. They ended up working their first season together in Morzine and fell in love with the Portes Du Soleil area. The company name was dreamed up in All Bar One in Leicester Square, London with a group of friends and Reach4thealps was launched in summer 2002. They welcomed the first guests to Chalet Sol Re in December 2002 after lots of DIY, curtain making and trips to Ikea!

They successfully ran Chalet Sol Re for 2 years and then started to expand little by little and in the years since have grown to having a portfolio of catered and self-catered properties between Morzine and Les Gets. In between all that they somehow managed to fit in getting married and having 2 kids in the process!



Ops Manager

Jo is our Ops Manager who started working with us in winter 2019/20. Between working as a host on board catamarans in Greece and Croatia, Jo had been coming to Morzine on holidays and working in chalets for the past few years. Her love of skiing and mountain biking makes Morzine the perfect place for her to live, and she is really happy to be a part of the Reach 4 The Alps team!


Fleet Manager

Adam joined Team reach in Winter 2021/22 after settling in Morzine with his partner Sian (not pictured!). A keen outdoorsman, Adam is usually to be found up a mountain be it on foot, wheels or snowboard! For Reach4thealps , he will be taking care of our ‘fleet’ of vans going forward, so you’ll hear from him or meet him if you are using our Transfer Service. As with all our team, we like to get stuck in every where so he may even have a cloth or screw driver in hand when you meet him.



Luke joined our team at the end of winter 2022/23. Since growing up in Cambridge England Luke has spent the majority of his adult life in ski towns all over the world following his passion for skiing, including a number of European resorts, New Zealand and California. He decided to settle in Morzine in 2018 and lives here with his partner Abi, son Teddy and their two dogs Maverick and Percy. He is a passionate skier, likes biking, and generally enjoys being outside in the mountains. He also loves to travel, and loves motorsport.

Helen and Phil have always loved the mountains and a few years ago gave up professional careers, a 9-5 lifestyle and followed their dream of working in the mountains and doing a ski season. After 3 seasons in La Tania & 3 winter seasons with us at Chalet Claire Vallee and Ferme de la Coutettaz, they’re now in Morzine for good! You’ll find them hosting in the winter and taking care of our chalets and gardens in the summer. They’re an integral part of the Reach team and we don’t know what we’d do without them!
