Beautiful place to work but don't come here to save money. There are no career advancement opportunities so management can often see you as being very replaceable.

Working in Whistler with Vail was one of the most enjoyable and interesting jobs that I've had so far! I learnt many transferrable skills and enjoyed every second working there!

Working for whistler blackcomb while a great experience was not what I had expected. Working in a rental shop with little staff, saw me working more hours, with minimal wage than I had originally planned. While living is affordable through staff accommodation it remains difficult through high prices on food and other activities.
I have however made many great friends and had many days on the mountain snowboarding while working here which is a major positive.


Within my rental shop a typical day at work is meant to be an 8 hour shift but busy days, long opening hours and poor staffing saw many of these days doing overtime without much of a say in it at all.


One positive I have taken from this experience however is my now increased knowledge about sis and snowboards, relating to all snow conditions and abilities.

You don't come to Whistler to earn money, you go to experience a ski resort and to gain customer service skills.
You will meet people from all walks of life and gain some incredible friends.

Expect hard work however and long hours.

Loved this job due to the fact that you will be skiing or snowboarding everyday to get back home from work. The rental shop is located on top of the mountain so it is not as busy as working in a store at the base of the mountain. Since you will be recommending skis and boards to customers, it is important to love these sports already to really excel at the job. Great people, great vibe and a lot of happy guests!
Points positifs
ride out from work everyday
Points négatifs
near minimum wage

Whistler Blackcomb is an amazing place to work for a season. Everyone is in good form and it is great for socializing and learning a new sport or improving if you have already snowboarded or skied. I would highly recommend to anyone aged 19-24 mainly but everyone can enjoy it. The reason for this is that it is quite a low wage to sustain yourself or save for a rainy day, but this is usually the case with working in an amazing location like this and it is worth the sacrifice (snow school instructor positions do pay very well). The perks are great - food and grocery discounts, free seasons pass, snow gear discounts, flexible hours, staff housing.It would be an excellent place to go before college while you decide what career to choose, as something to enjoy after studying, or as an amazing destination to go while travelling. It also really teaches you how to save and it really puts everything into perspective especially the work/life balance.
Points positifs
Great people, fun work, plenty of time on the mountain, discounts, free seasons pass.
Points négatifs
Low wage

A typical day at work:

locked up the door, checked the "to do list" that the night crew left last night, if there is any projects or jobs to finish we started with that. Turn on all the machines and make sure everything is good and in order for the morning rush (Carleton Tuning is the most busy tuning centre in the whole whistler!)


most in the morning its only pick-up, qucik/buff waxes and mayby someone who needed help setting their DIN-settings.


when the morning rush is over, i was starting up the Montana tuning machine, all the rental stores use to pick up their skiis and boards just after the rush. Fresh ones out - used skis in!

just start tuning!


Normaly we was 2-3 guys in the shop, so everyone was helping eichother out with tuning and taking care of customers during the day,


in the afternoon the night shift guys get in, hopefully before the rush starts, beacuse it can get insane busy! its just people, ski, snowboards, customers, worksheets and a looong line down the halway! so you really have to stay focused and calm on what you are doing!


if you are working night shift, you make sure all the new rentals and customer skis and snowboards are done for the morning, you just dont leave the shop even if its christmas and its 03.00 in the morning!


i was learning a lot and got some really good feedback from the experienced guys! at first just the basics, but when mastered that and you showed the senior guys that you where intrestead and wanted to learn more technics the senior guys showed me a lot of good tricks!




at the end off the season

Points positifs
tune and wax your own skiis.
