Q about Whistler

Had a couple questions about Whistler tucked away in another thread and got no replies. Hopefully someone can give me a hand. Will keep it pretty brief.

Start with a relatively easy one - when's Whistler usually open?

Now, will be heading to Whistler with girlfriend for the 10/11 season (for 5 n half months). Got LOI for working permit (am from Aus). In terms of getting a job, I've heard that it's generally not too hard to find work, particularly if you're there early season (looking to arrive mid Oct). By the time we arrive funds will be probably pretty low so getting a job ASAP will be important. Any comments on that?

Main issue I've heard is that finding accommodation is hard. What I would really like to know is how much does accommoation cost generally (like for the month, whatever)? What options are available and would people reccommend (staff accomm/shared housing etc)? Also, whats a cheap decent place to stay for the first week or so while you look for permanent accomm and work, like a hostel or something?

Cheers guys
