Review by Patrick Levitzke, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, 2014
“I've been at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge for roughly 2.5 months now, working in the stewarding department; so mostly cleaning and dishwashing; not the best of the jobs here but I do work with some pretty fantastic people from all over the world; Germany, Czech Republic and some friends from back home in Aus.
As for life outside of work, it's absolutely brilliant. Because you live essentially where you work (which might seem daunting at first) it quickly grows on you; a lot of the older staff have cars and are always going on fun adventures to nearby lookouts and touristy-type places, people are always up to something so the social life is definitely not lacking.
Now that winter is well and truly here, work slows down a bit so I plan to be doing a lot of snowboarding which is a lot of the reason I came here for ( plus you can get a discounted ski pass through the hotel). At the moment some friends and I are planning trips to Whistler and Vancouver, as well Banff which is quite close, and cheap as we get staff rates at any Fairmont hotel ( which can be as low as $70 a night for a 5 star resort!)”

"I had always wanted to do a Work & Travel program overseas and when I saw Canago I thought it was fate! I signed up and Canago was there to help me straight away. I had a job set up before I left Australia and everyone was always friendly and helpful.
I work as a Housekeeper, doesn't sound great but it's an awesome job! My time off I've learnt to Ski. I've also been dog sledding and snow-shoeing! There's heaps more I want to do, so I'll probably stay here during Summer too! What started off as a Ski Season Job in Canada, has turned into a year long adventure for me I think. This is probably the best Working Holiday in Canada EVER!"
