I suppose you mean in China by middle country...

snowboarding is getting very popular in China, but quantity of Chinese snowboarder is still not too much, compared with North America, considering the the percentage of 1.3 billion people in China, it seems even less.

The hottest place in China is Beijing, and northeast(including 3 provinces Heilongjiang, Jilin & Liaoning). Well, there they got snow falls.

You could find lots of skilled snowboarders in China, wearing the newest funky jackets, pants and beanies, riding lib tech, nitro, burton, never summer... boards. snowboarding is not only a sport, but also a culture. I'd say Chinese snowboarders put a lot passion and money in it.

I went to Sunshine yesterday, and from my point of view, Chinese ski resorts are quite similar, but relatively smaller, crowder, cheaper.

The lake and sunshine are both ope full time now.

Are you living in Banff or Lake Louise? You will find it hard to get work unless you are in town. Why would they take a risk on you living in Calgary if they can get people who are living down the road. If you know what I mean?
I live in Calgary, of course I know what you mean, I've also sent my resume to COP, Winsport, apply for lift operator, don't know if they'd reply to me.

zak.guan yesterday, I went to COP with 2 friends, but they were not open, and then we decided to go to Norquay, coz I hearts that they are the earliest resort open this year, but when we were there, it's not open either.
