Hey Travellers, We are arriving in Vancouver in Jan and have been told to see Banff & Whistler for work as they are the two hot spots for skiing and work (I have been told by Aussies only though)...Is there any where else that is recommended..Also are there many hostels that are clean and cheap to stay?

I live in Calgary and ski around Banff area regularly. There are lots of large ski hills, the biggest 2 being Lake Louise and Sunshine. There are lots of other ski hills though that should not be overlooked!! From the little I know about people from abroad that come over to work I believe they come early in the season (probably around November), and of course end up staying the whole season, maybe making it harder to find something in January.

Your best bet is just to ask though. check out RCR's website @\

and for employment

if your worried about obtaining work why dont you go through a work agency that organises a job for you before you leave. Try ccusa or an organisation like that.
I'm off to Breckenridge in decemer to work the season and i went through which has vail resorts job opportunties on it for international aplicants.

if you go through an agency they can help you with visa's etc which i',m having to organise myself with little ease.
