It still surprises me that loads of people who move to Whistler look for work and forget to “do the math”.

Whistler is a unique place – it’s equal parts small town and international resort. And somehow this blends beautifully into a magical place to live and work for over 10,000 residents that regularly call Whistler home. However, a Whistler lifestyle is not for everyone. Housing is a unique challenge – especially for those who are just arriving in town. Pursuing a long-term career seems daunting on the surface, as most of the jobs available are for front-line customer service and hospitality positions.
