There are a couple of guys on here from Revelstoke so if you do a search you should be able to find them to PM them. Jobs can be hit or miss from what I know. The hill is awesome. They had a shit season this year compared to normal (snow wise) so hopefully that means the next one will make up for it!
There's basically no jobs in town (any time of the year). The pay is poor too.
Housing is very plentiful in the spring-summer, and fairly cheap ($700-$1000 for a 2-bedroom place)
By October it's all taken up and anything left over is expensive.
Food is expensive (on-par with Banff/Whistler).
The hill is awesome though (for a die-hard rider.. not for a tourist or someone desiring ammenities).
Email me if you want more info.. I won't be checking back here much until October.
