Hi all! I'm going to spend a few months (mid December - April ideally) in Canada over the 18/19 season but I'm a bit in over my head with so many options/ possibilities for how to go about it all. For a bit of background, I work remotely here in Aus and my boss has agreed to me doing this same work for a few months overseas while I'm in Canada (what a dream, right?). I plan on saving enough to show I can support myself for the duration of my trip, but will be still earning some income (in Aus dollars, into an Aus bank account, paying tax in Aus and only working for Aus clients). I plan on getting a letter from my boss as a reference for entering the country, plus evidence of family etc back home to come back to. I'm a bit concerned that they will be under the impression that I plan on working in Canada due to the length of the trip, does anyone have any experience with situations like this? Do you think it's essential for me to have return flights under my belt to be let into the country? (I will potentially be travelling to Europe before coming home so would like to avoid getting return flights if possible). Secondly, I'm having trouble deciding which resort to go with. I'm thinking one of the resorts in BC and some of the deciding factors that come to mind are: - Affordable rent (with internet access) / lift passes for someone who isn't working in the area (I've heard it can be hard to find accommodation as a non-local and someone who doesn't have staff housing in some resorts), - Good access to the slopes from home (shuttle busses, public transport etc, or alternatively, would buying a car for the season be worth it?), - Good social scene without being to wild - I've heard Whistler is full of Aussies and partying, which sounds great for maybe a week away while I'm there but not really what I'm looking for for the entire trip. At the same time I don't want to be the only person in their mid 20s in the area surrounded by families. - Great runs for skiers. Apologies for the wall of text, really appreciate any advice / thoughts any one can give! Cheers.
