Live the dream – Work in Whistler this summer

Have you ever dreamed about leaving the nine to five and doing something more exciting with your life? How about spending your summer riding the best trails on the planet, whilst living and working in the MTB mecca that is Whistler BC? Well, Ticket2Ride want you!

Ticket2RideBC are looking for enthusiastic and passionate riders to fill a variety of roles this coming summer season (May – October).

From their unique riders’ centre, Ticket2RideBC provide a huge range of fully guided and catered XC, All-Mountain, Freeride and Downhill holidays alongside epic backcountry floatplane and Heli-drop adventures.

For the summer 2008 season they have the following vacancies:

o Resort Manager?

· A current clean drivers licence ?
· Good bike/mechanical repair knowledge ?

Above all their guides need to be great communicators and motivators with the ability to work well in a busy team environment and maintain high spirits at all times.

The Resort Manager role is an extremely responsible position, as the successful candidate will be given ownership of the day to day running of the resort office and accommodation. This highly focused, customer-facing role would therefore suit a more mature individual.

Responsibilities will include:
