You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It also helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -- Frank Zappa
If you're looking for a job go to blackcomb.com and check out the job fair thing.. I was thinking of going up there and working for the whole summer next year.. is anyone else staying there next summer?
shit man that is going to bbe really hard because they have so many people to take the jobs they prob wont take u if they have to under the table none of the big restaurants will
food isnt that expensive some things are
Start looking for a place and a job early. I ended up w/ a place w/ 12 of us and we each pay 600 per month. it's close to the village though so it's alright. If you want a cheap place to live work for the mountain then you can live in staff res. I work part time for the mountain, so i'll be able to ski a lot and still afford to pay for rent and food.
yes i know. it sucks ass. but whatever, 600 isn't that huge of a deal. the lady who rents out the house to us is getting so much money off of us. I didnt 'know the ppl i was moving in w/ to begin w/ it;s just a house and you rent a room. the other house that she's got in Emerald has 23 ppl, and they pay like 500 a month. that's shitty.
unless your a student you need a 'letter of offer' to get a work visa.....Whistler wont give letters of offer, so as far as working for the mountain its basically impossible for an american.....if anyone has ever figured out a way to get around this id like to hear it.
