Hand-built in 1978 by original members of Whistler’s backcountry community, this is the passion project of a few 'tenacious' mountain loving individuals. This love for mountains and the great outdoors is alive and well today with a tiny team of approx. 8 members, working tirelessly to share this place with genuine services that truly connect our guests with the quintessential magic.
We are located in the heart of British Columbia’s Coast Mountain Range, just 20 minutes south from Whistler Village and 1.5 hours north of Vancouver.
We are a unique wilderness adventure operation featuring the Touring Centre providing convenient access to a full range of Nordic experiences including classic, skate, and wilderness cross-country skiing, dog-friendly trails, as well as forest and meadow snowshoeing, magnificent alpine ski touring slopes, and deep, deep powder. At the heart of this landscape, 13.8 kilometres (8.4 miles) up from the nearest road, sits Lodge, a well-appointed backcountry inn boasting friendly hospitality, great food, and comfortable accommodation for up to 24 people.

Imagine… a beautifully sunny and crisp winter day and fresh snow as far as the eye can see. No resort crowds to worry about, just the solitude of the backcountry. Gliding along a freshly groomed track or shredding lines down from the top of a high-alpine ridge, the choices are endless. Along with the unique experience, we will provide workawayers with a Salary commensurate with experience along with staff housing at our Touring Centre location + a Complimentary Adult Ski Season Pass and Free personal usage of Rental Equipment including Salomon classic and skate packages + demo line, & snowshoes.

These opportunities are paid and we will be pursuing a traditional employment interview/screening process. Must have valid Canadian SIN so we can pay you. Due to the nature of our facility and close proximity to guests, we will require that you provide proof of vaccination. Term is set for early December start with a work stay commitment until mid-April. Please note, that we can only accept applicants already within the local Whistler vicinity at this time.
Sincere apologies for the poor response rate...we are slightly overwhelmed by the amount of interest here on workaway and it's an additional portal of correspondence to keep up with.
