The fall and early ski season are very busy times at Big White Ski Resort. Many prospective employees are arriving for job interviews and work. Also everyone is looking for a place to stay during the winter.
However, we still strongly recommend you arrive with pre-booked accommodation.
Here are a few places to look for seasonal rentals at Big White: The Official Big White Group on Facebook,www.castanet.net and www.kijiji.ca.
When you are renting a unit at Big White for the season, make sure you sign a tenancy contract with the landlord. This will protect you should there be any issues. If you have any questions on these contracts or are unsure if what is being requested by your landlord is appropriate, visit the Residential Tenancy Branch here.
SCAM ALERT: We have been notified that people have been asked for a full season's rent up front for seasonal rentals. Once the money has been sent, the tenants never hear from the landlord again and aren't able to contact anyone. Please be vigilant when dealing with any potential landlors regarding accommodation.
Big White is pleased to offer a limited number of staff accommodation beds to our staff. Each manager will have a limited number of beds to allocate to staff. Staff accommodation beds are proportionally allocated based on department size, so each department only has a limited number of beds.These units are in Snow Pine Estates, Happy Valley and the Village. During the hiring process, your potential manager will be able to let you know whether they still have any beds available. We will do our best to accommodate any location and house mate requests.
These units range from apartments to houses, with anywhere from 4 people to 8 people per unit. The units are fully furnished and include linens.
