Hey Duffman,

I'm from Australia, I did Whistler '02-03, I got a job working nights cleaning second day I was there.. there's lots of Accomm around aswell mate. You need a working visa.. I arrived in late October- bought a car first day in Vancouver, Second day in Canada I drove to Whistler picked up a hitch hiker in Squamish, the hitch hiker hooked me up with work and I moved into his place in Pemberton.. Was the best season ive ever done... partied hard, rode harder, heaps of hiking and backcountry. Australia has "hills" Canada has "Mountains"...

i think alotta of the staff stay in creekside, its a small side just out of the whistler village. But there is a lift from creekside up whistler so ya still dont have to travel anywhere.

I think its alot cheaper there which is why ppl stay there. But this is just what i heard when i was there on holiday in 06

I'm also interested in this. I need to get off the ice coast and ride asome actual mountains and powder. The only mountain I've rode, is Mont- St. Sauveur, and that's not much of a mountain at all.

Whistler - jobs
Depends on the kind of work you want. This year the mountain has pre-employed most of their jobs. However there are plenty of jobs going for various places around the village.
The real killer is accommodation. If you haven't got something organised by end of October, then forget it.
if you are going to do a road trip, why not do a BC trip. plenty of great resorts in BC.
Revelstoke,Fernie,Lake Louise,Sun Peaks, Big White, Kicking Horse plus more.....
