If your going to be working in Whistler for an entire winter season, you will need all the necessary winter clothing. It can be very mild there but also blistering cold.

Full winter jacket, ski pants, boots, sweaters, jeans, hats, gloves etc. If you are a skier/snowboarder you'll need a variety of hats and gloves. You can buy all that stuff when you get there, but it could be pricey. If you need that stuff, head to a suburb of Vancouver before heading up to Whistler.

btw - You'll need some t-shirts and a couple of pairs of shorts for Spring.

This is a bit off topic,
I have contacted whistlerBlackcomb about employment and have not had a reply yet via email, should i call them? I was just interested in how you got your job in Canada as i am from Australia and i think it would be pretty much the same process.

HAve fun over there may see ya lol
