Where to work?

I am wanting to work in Banff over the ski season as well as enjoy what Banff has to offer ( skiing/sightseeing). So a part time job that offers some sort of accommodation would be good. Any recommendations on where to work? Should I work on a hill or in town?

Part time jobs and staff housing are hard to come by. Most companies with housing will want you on board full time.

Working in town generally pays better than working in the resort but the resort can be more fun. Plus most of the people in the resort will be there for the same reason you are -fun/drinking/snowboarding/drinking.

Now is the time to be applying for winter work. Get on it ASAP!
