Planning to go to one of the most visited mountain resorts? Looking for a seasonal job?

If yes is your answer to both questions, here are some facts you have to know about Whistler Blackcomb.

Located in Whistler, British Columbia, Whistler Blackcomb is the largest ski resort in North America and  was the host resort of the alpine skiing events at the 2010 Olympics.
Whistler Blackcomb is first known to be an extremely vast ski terrain. Two mountains are developed for skiing: Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain which are as famous as each other. The two of them are linked by the Peak 2 Peak gondola so you can ski as much terrain as possible!

Surrounded by beautiful wild nature and some of the best stores and restaurants, the place is hard to resist and many fall in love with the Whistler lifestyle and decide to stay or work there.
