    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are glad to share our extensive knowledge with our helpers.
    Staying in your own little cabin, exploring the mountains, lakes and new environments is a truly Canadian ( west coast ) experience.

    Help

    Approximently 4-5 hours a day of help, often split between the morning and evening as we like to incorporate leisure into the day. All meals included on working days. No experience necessary just a willingness to learn and take direction. What ever your skills and interests are we can find a project for you ! Days off you will have to supply your own lunch & dinner.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are more than happy to pick helpers up at the bus station in Whistler which is 45 min away. Having your own vehicle would be nice ( but not mandatory) as there is no transit here. There is lots of hiking nearby, If the weather is nice we often go to nearby lakes for swimming and boating.
