Hey guys,
Im an Australian living abd working in Spain at the moment with my boyfriend. We have just received our canadian working visas and plan to do a season in Canada. HAve been told that British Columbia is the place to be even though we are just beginners. We definately want to hook a job up snd sort out accomodation over the net before we arrive. Dont know where to start. If anyone has any advice or knows of great websites for jobs would really appreciate feedback.
Thanks
Justina

Hey, I'm moving to Whistler in a few days, I have a hotel job lined up but I really don't want to do that. I want a job on the hill or in a bar.I'm also in need of a place to stay (I can only crash at my uncle's place for so long and I need roomates to be able to get an appartement). If anybody knows of something, info is appreciated, Thanx, Tim

I can't offer any leads on jobs, unfortunately, but I will be in Whistler
at least once this year and I'd love to hear what those working there
have to say about it. Also, if anyone has recommendations for good
runs (blacks, double blacks) or places to seek powder, I'd love to
know.

Hi guys!

My name is Karin Im a swedish girl, at the moment I live in New York, but Im soon heading towards Whistler. The dream for me is to work hard and live cheap and just enjoy the mountains... I have manage to get a work VISA in Canada for a year. Im thinking of renting a appartment, but it is expenisve, the best would be to get a job were they help the staf with apartments. Would love to hear from any of you other adventorus people that are planing a season in Whistler, mayby meet up in Whistler, or become roommates?
Hope for soon answers!

Karin

2. Is it possible to get acccommodation beforehand as well, how do you do that?
 
Thanks Pete.
