Im Nick from Australia heading over to Banff for the 2010/2011 ski season.
Iv got plenty of questions to ask you guys as this is my first whole season skiing and first time out of Aus or Japan.
what jobs would would guys recommend? im happy doing anything, would you recommend working for the mountain or in the town?
Theres talk of a house being organised by people im meeting over there so i wouldnt make use of the staff accom provided by the mountain.
If anyone has any contacts in Banff your help would be greatly apprecatied!
is it common for season passes to be provided by employers?
once im there, how much would you estimate its going to cost be before getting set up? i know this all depends on lots of things like how quickly i get a job :P
How easy is it to come accross 2nd hand skis at the start of the season? how much would i be looking to pay for a decent all mountain ski?
at this stage i guess i shouldnt bother looking at which ones i want, iv only skiied on k2 Apache recons and dont know alot on the subject.
Thanks heaps for you help guys,
feel free to post anything you might think this rookie hasnt realised yet :P
