typical day What's it like

A typical day on this gap year project

Daily tasks will vary depending on which role you are in. A typical working day starts at 9am, and finishes when the required work is finished. This leaves free evenings and 2 days a week for down time. Whilst the Rockies are a fantastic place to ski in winter, summer also offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the stunning scenery. Between rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking, the mountains will never cease to amaze you. Working with fellow students, you will make friends as you live and work in Canada, exploring the mountains together and learning about this spectacular country.
