      Fairmont or Mountain work?

      Hi guys,

      I am a total newbie to Whistler and will be coming for both this coming winter (arrive late October) and staying on to do a Summer.
      Because I've never been there I don't know what jobs are considered better. I have been offered work in the guest services area of the Fairmont as well as working for the mountain in retail.
      Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on whether Fairmont has a good reputation for being a good place to work, Ok pay etc? Just trying to weight it up against the pros of working for the mountain and getting a season pass etc.

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

    • Travelling from Gaspe to Bathurst in New Brunswick via Bus ?

      Gaspé Jul 6, 2015 at 1:29 PM

      Hi,
      I am travelling to Gaspe airport (YGP) from Toronto (YYZ) via Air Canada. Once I reach Gaspe I intend to travel in a rental car to New Brunswick, PEI, Cape Breton. The whole trip is around 10 days long.
      I checked with the rental car companies and the province of Quebec has per Km pricing and no kms are free.
      Hence I need to move out of Quebec and then rent a car preferably in the province of New Brunswick (Bathurst or Moncton) for the entire trip.
      Can some one please help me in this regard. How do i travel out of Gaspe via a Bus or any other means to Bathurst in New Brunswick ?
      Moreover if someone knows of any rental agency in Gaspe, QC that charges just like in the province of Ontario pls do let me know ?

      Hi all,

      I'm planning to visit Toronto at the end of March just around Easter. Found some information that most shops are only closed on 'Good Friday' and there is not really a second Easter day. Are the other days around Easter easy with a lot of shops open and does it get really crowded with tourists?

      Hello,

      I will be traveling with family (myself, mum, sister, all adults) from the 19th August to 1st September on the East Coast of Canada.

      This is our preliminary plan and would be very grateful if I could get some input on this. I'll be renting a car (I'm British, hope it's not too hard):

      21st - Day in Montreal, Night in Montreal
      22nd - Day in Montreal, Night in Montreal
      23rd - Day in Montreal, Drive to Quebec City in evening, Night in QC

      Mahalo Folks!

      We will visit Niagara Falls (with two seniors), in a couple of weeks. While they are both in overall good health, one has a weakened knee and the other a less than youthful lower back. Please share about the walking involved at Niagara Falls, Ontario? Is transportation (taxis, shuttles) available and convenient? We have accommodations at the Marriott Falls View, and I was wondering about the walk to the Falls, boat tours, and casino.

    • Use of English outside of the big cities

      Quebec Jul 10, 2015 at 4:07 AM

      An American friend, who doesn't speak any French, who does a lot of travel withing Quebec as part of his job, told me that he used to run into hostility from merchants and the public in general in Quebec, outside of Montreal and Quebec City, when he'd ask questions in English. He said he learned a trick to solve the problem. When he enters a store, he starts off by saying, "Habla Espanol?" then "Sprechen sie Deutch?". While the locals typically don't speak Spanish or German, they assume that the person is not American and not an English speaking Canadian.
      Then, with a fake accent, he says "Do you speak English?". Usually the merchant is then relieved, and delighted to speak English. Apparently anti-English resentment is not really against the English language, but against Americans and Canadians who take it for granted that everyone should speak English.
      Has this worked for any of you?

      Christmas/New Years in Yellowknife

      by jjkent Online Now Aug 14, 2014 at 10:24 PM

      I am planning a winter adventure in NWT or YT. I am a former Alaska resident and would like to spend about a week skiing (classic and skate), ice fishing, skijoring, kite skiing, camping, viewing the northern lights, bars & restaurants, etc. Most of my friends here in the States are not even remotely interested in joining me on my winter adventure so I would love to join groups or find a guide to do these things. My time off is around Christmas and/or New Years. My question: where should I go in Yellowknife, or should I go somewhere else in Canada, i.e. Whitehorse? Thanks!

      Trip booked! How to best survive the extreme cold in Yellowknife?

      by leigh767 Online Now Dec 17, 2013 at 7:06 PM

      Hi all, I'm heading to Yellowknife in early March for the northern lights and will be spending hours outdoors as I plan to be photographing heavily and doing time lapse photography as well. I know temperatures will drop to about -30C (-22F) at night and the last time I was in that sort of cold, it was outright painful.

      Would like to be better prepared for this big trip. Does anyone have tips on what to pack? The VT Yellowknife's What To Pack Section has only one tip ("pack a fishing rod") so I'm hoping to get more insights from anyone who's been there/lives there.

      I know parks are a must - and I'm planning to rent one when I get there since I live in the tropics so there's no point buying one. Does anyone know what the rental price range is like? And any other packing tips will be GREATLY appreciated. Right now my plan is very under-developed. I just know that boots, parkas, and heat packs for the hands/feet are a must. Anything else?

    • I'm planning to run the Yellowknife Marathon in August 2011 and...

      by TorontoDuluth Online Now Jun 9, 2011 at 9:46 AM

      I need some advice. I've always wanted to take a trip up there, and I love running marathons (I'm making a vacation out of this, running Yellowknife's marathon one week and Edmonton's race a week or so later). Now, I've conquered Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis; expensive cities, all on a budget! I've never travelled to a remote location that is expensive to get to, and might not have the selection of budget hostels (not dumps!). I don't really see much in Yellowknife; if you're familiar with the city, are there backpacker hostels or places like the 'Y' where someone like myself could stay at for a couple days? Just from looking at the map I'd like to be near YK Centre so I don't need to depend on a car while I'm there.

      Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
