v0lume has indicated that this thread is about Canada

I was hoping you could help out a bit if it is not to much trouble. My girlfriend and I are Traveling to Whistler in Dec/Jan 2005 from New Zealand for a snowboarding/working holiday. We both have work visas and are hoping to look for jobs - anything will do if it pays the bills. We are both 25 and in senior positions at a design agency and accounting firm.

How easy is it to get jobs / accommodation (long term - 5 months) in Whistler at around that time of the year? Any tips you can offer us? Its or first time abroard boarding so not to sure what to expect. We were going to pre purchase a season pass but have decided not to as that will be the only thing keeping us in Whistler. Where do you got to look for jobs?

Looking forward to hearing back.

Might also be worth arriving a bit before ski season starts - otherwise I would assume a lot of the jobs (especially lifties, etc.) might be taken. Season opens at end of November.

Good luck - you'll feel at home in Whistler - lots of Aussies! Australia Day is one big party up there!!
