What it's like working at


Grouse Mountain is a world-class ski resort just 30 minutes from the center of Vancouver, one of the world's top cities. When you spend a season here, you'll benefit from their extensive snowmaking systems ensuring great coverage over a truly epic six month season. The mountain is also open for night skiing which presents even more opportunities to spend time on the mountain.


As Grouse is a ski resort near Vancouver and only a short drive away, accommodation is typically based in apartments in North Vancouver. These are close to shops, cafes, and the Grouse bus stop, it is a cool place to be based for a winter. We provide accommodation through private apartment rentals. After the initial training and exam period you will be responsible for accommodation payments - you can expect to make an advanced rent payment before the season starts covering the length of your tenancy.  Rates and locations may vary from time to time, and if they do we will endeavour to let you know at the earliest opportunity. Average monthly rent in Canada is approximately $850-900CAD for seasonal accommodation.

North Vancouver Apartments:

  • Free High speed Internet connection
  • Cable TV with DVD Player
  • Fridge, Stove, Microwave
  • Dishes, pots & pans, all utensils

  • Laundry facilities
