Never mind a two-week holiday - the best way to experience Whistler is as a local. Anyone aged 18 to 35 can obtain a 12-month work permit through BUNAC's Work Canada programme. (You don't have to be a student.)
Whistler Blackcomb holds a hiring fair in October. Competition is fierce and the company is extremely customer-focused, so show plenty of enthusiasm and animation.
A job with the mountain means a free season pass, free lessons, discounted food and ski/snowboard gear and subsidised accommodation. You might work as a liftie, a ski technician, a cappuccino bar server or a ticket validator.
Hard work, yes, but you'll improve your skiing/riding no end and discover all the secret spots on the mountain.
