Louise - ski/board technician!

"...Canada har gjort mig klogere på livet og en ordentlig håndfuld venner rigere. Jeg har lært at stå på snowboard, været i smokehouse med de lokale indianere, og oplevet en lidt anden side af Canada i de fattige dele af de Indianske reservater. 

Det hele har ikke været en dans på roser, der har været en masse arbejde, travle dage og en stresset Maneger med voldsomme humørsvingninger. Men det har også været en sæson fyldt med masser af fantastiske mennesker, smuk natur, fester, og uforglemmelige øjeblikke.."

LARS - Liftoperatør

"Mit liv deles her. der er et før Canada liv og et efter Canada liv.
Livet efter min Canada tur gav mig nyt syn på livet, mennesker og måde at lever på. 

Jeg landet i Vancouver med kun mit Work-Visa i hånden og min backpack. og hele landet lå for mine føder. Uden at vider helt hvad jeg ville arbejde med. kom jeg i snark med nogen drenge på min første nat på hosteled i VC. og besluted at følges med dem til Banff i Alberta.
Det var mit livs bedste beslutning, vi fandt godt sammen. og fik arbejde på Norquay ski-resort som lifts(lift operatør) og en lille hytte fandt vi at bo i, some vi fyldet med 6 personer.

Så der blev festet og set på Canada og arbejdet på en og samme tid :) man følte bare aldrig rigtig, at man var på arbejde:)

Man skyller sig selv at gøre dette, bare en gang."

"Det gaar det rigtig godt herovre! Det er jo et dejligt sted at vaere, og man moeder mange herlige mennesker. Griner sommetider lidt for mig selv, naar jeg taenker tilbage paa jeres info materiale. Et sted skriver I, at man skal tage gode sko med, da man kommer til at gaa mere end man forventer. Og hvor har I da ret.!"

STINE - receptionist i Banff (Se Stines billeder her)

Hi Chris
Funny you wrote me, because I just talked to Masa the other day about writing you. But I can tell you that it is going really well. I love my job and the people that I work with. And the city is great too, just the place for me. On top of that, I got some great roomates, with makes it so much easier. There is a lot to learn at the job. The first days I thought I could never learn, but I am getting better:) Sometimes the language can be a problem, but that's getting better too. I just worked 11 days strait, so today is my day off. But it's not a problem to work that much when you like your job. Hope everything is great in Vancouver too. I haven't been skiing yet, but there is so much else to do in Banff than skiing. Thank you for finding me a great job.
Best regards Stine Christensen

ASTRID - Stuepige i Jasper

Hey Chris
I'm great in Jasper. I am having so much fun here! I'm living with two french guys and other canadians in the backstaff building, and we are having a great time together. I feel very lucky with the people I live with and also the people I work with! I feel like I have a new family here... So that is nice! As for the job, housekeeping will never be something that I will love and be good at, but it is allright! I love the people I work with, so 8 hours a day does not feel that long, but I hope some day to do something else besides housekeeping. I don't know if I can do it in a hole year, but I hope I don't have have to! I'm planning on leaving in mid april to travel a month with a friend, and then maybe come back to Jasper and work again. Maybe even with decore, but I am not sure. But I love Jasper and the life here. It was very quiet when I got here, but now there is a lot of turist in town. And I love the skiing in Marmot. I have a season pass and go on my days off. It is great! Jasper has never seen so much snow up there before, and it is the best ski conditions ever! So I am lucky! And I love the wildlife here. There are elks and deers everywhere... Very nice. So I'm good and well again after a week in bed with the flu. It is so cold here and every staff has had it the past few weeks.
Best regards Astrid
