Summary

Paid Work in the Canadian Rockies

Work hard, play hard!
Imagine being able to ski in a beautiful place for several months, rather than a week…  You can – if you’re prepared to put in a bit of graft as well.  Our work programme in the Canadian Rockies will provide you with a paid job, with accommodation, all arranged in advance.  You’ll go out as part of a group of like-minded people so you’ll never be short of company in your time off.  You don’t have to be a winter sports fanatic.  Jobs are available during the summer season too.

The work
We offer entry level hospitality roles within the hotel industry.  Typical jobs tend to be in housekeeping, dish washing, cleaning tables or basic food preparation. The more previous experience on your CV, the better. We have found people jobs working behind the bar or even on the reception desk, if they have the relevant experience. Canada has high standards of customer service, so you’ll be expected to be friendly, polite and helpful.  In return you’ll get a good wage and great work experience in one of the best ski resorts around.  You’ll also be working alongside people from all over the world and making some great friends.

The play
During your time off you can grab your skis or board and make the most of the snow.  The Rockies region offers top notch snow and amazing scenery – and it’s on your doorstep.  In the evenings you can find your Oyster friends and work mates in one of the many bars or restaurants.  There’s always something going on.  Just make sure you’re up in time for work the next day!

Ski Pass
During the winter season, we include a mid-week ski pass for Mt Norquay - the closest ski resort to Banff. The money allocated to pay for the pass can be used as a credit towards other ski passes if you wanted a more inclusive pass.

Accommodation
You will stay in staff accommodation provided by your employer. It’s basic, but comfortable and affordable.  The cost will be deducted from your wages (approx CAD $10 per night) and you should expect to share a room.
