Don’t Just Visit the Rockies – Live Them

When visiting the Rockies, especially for the first time, many people are awed by their majesty. I was no exception. After working in Jasper for four months I was no longer awestruck but I was continuously impressed by the natural beauty I witnessed every day. I counted myself lucky to walk out my door into such natural splendour. My daily commute featured emerald lakes and frequent sightings of deer and elk.

Jobs are Plentiful

Mountain towns like  Banff have put limits on expansion to preserve the natural beauty of the parks. This keeps their populations relatively small. However, millions of tourists flock to the mountains each year.  The result is that the local population cannot staff all the shops, restaurants, campgrounds and  hotels in banff that accommodate all these visitors. Banff needs people like you, people on working holidays, to help them run. Businesses are always seeking staff and jobs are plentiful in Banff National Park.
