These jobs, skiing instructor, generally pay very low wages, so expect to not make enough to really live on in Canada :(

Hello Emma;

If you wish to work in Whistler and Blackcomb they are always looking for people. This winter they couldn't find enough locals that they had to hire more than double the amount of foreigners (Australia, England, Austria, etc.) to fill in as ski instructors, gondola operators, etc. The major employer there is Intrawest. You can visit their website for job postings. Last year they were so desperate for skilled employees that they were doing the interviews over the phone. Here is their employment website (for all types of jobs including administration), they own quite a few ski resorts besides Whistler and Blackcomb:

If you find Whistler too expensive and Banff too isolated consider living in North Vancouver and working at one of the 3 ski hills on the North Shore mountains: Mount Seymour at; or Grouse Mountain at; or at Cypress Bowl at

Good luck, and I hope you find a great job!
