Relief Wilderness Hostel Manager

HI Rampart Creek, Wilderness Hostel

Banff National Park, Alberta

CHOP WOOD, CARRY WATER, LIGHT CAMPFIRES, GET PAID!

OK, maybe you won’t get rich – but if you’re looking for a true Canadian Wilderness experience, this job may be for you.

Hostelling International is looking to fill the position of Relief Wilderness Hostel Manager for the 2019 Summer/Fall season.  This person travels between several of the Banff Wilderness hostels, small 20-30 bed hostels located off the beaten path in Banff National Park, covering the days off of the regular managers at each facility.

These hostels – Whiskey Jack, Mosquito Creek and Rampart Creek primarily – are what we call “rustic”. Either they have no electricity or running water, or just no telephone or internet.  For what they lack in modern facilities and connectivity, they more than make up for in other ways; waking up to the peaceful quiet of the Wilderness, being able to count the millions of stars so far away from the city, or simply being surrounded by the vastness and indescribable beauty of rugged mountains, hanging glaciers and 400-metre tall waterfalls.

If you have your own transportation, think you’d like to be a host to our guests staying in these little backcountry cabins, are ok with a 10 day on/4 day off schedule, want to spend your time off hiking, biking and climbing in some of the most beautiful areas that Canada has to offer, please apply today!  

This position is available to start immediately. The starting wage is $15.00/hour and includes a 6% vacation entitlement.  On site staff accommodation is provided at no cost at each hostel.  

Apply today!
