What jobs/businesses are in resort towns?
This is just a bit of casual curiosity on my part, and I'm thinking specifically of Whistler but I guess the question could apply to most resort towns. Anyway, as a general question...
I'm a computer programmer, so I could work for a lot of different types of businesses - pretty much any business that's big enough to need computer people (or person). My wife and I have occasionally talked about moving to Whistler after our daughter graduates. I'm just wondering -- is everything in the town geared towards el tourista or are there traditional businesses as well? Understand, I am NOT looking for a snowboarding or even mountain-related job. Working in the city's I.T. dept for instance would be viable.
This is, as I say, just casual curiousity at the moment.
