looking to do a season in BC/AB for 2010/2011... any ideas?
Im a 23 year old aussie, looking to do a season in BC/AB for the next season (2010/11).
Im looking for a place with good snowboarding terrain, good people ,accomodation somewhat easily available and work. Snowboarding is more imporatant than partying for me, so i dont want to stay in some hick town out in the middle of nowhere, so some good nightlife is defintately a plus, but its just not my main priority. Im a plumber by trade and would like to get some trade work, do you know whether that is possible in some of the resort towns??
I have had a few recommendations for the usual big white, sunshine village/lake louise area... but i wouldnt mind going off the beaten track and getting an authentic candian experience, being australian i dont wanna feel like im flying 20 hours around the other side of the world to live only with my own kind, as ive been told that in big white, banff, whistler etc are pretty much just aussies. I had a few more recommendations for such places as red mountain, castle, and revelstoke, would these places be good for a season??
Im not afraid to go somewhere a little different ,definately willing to take a gamble! So if you could help us out with some local info or just knowledge i'd be stoked, im flying over in late may this year,staying for the summer so i have some time to check places out, and hopefully get in early before the crowds!
