Staff Housing: The location comes with shared staff housing which is offsite and roughly a 4min drive or a 20min walk. This is generally located in Glacier Lodge which is one of the same locations for staff housing as Whistler Blackcomb (Vail). Most rooms are 2 people per room with 4 people sharing a 2 bedroom unit. Housing is allocated by The Fairmont, however, you can put in any requests of who you want to share with once you have a job contract.
