Join our team
In this fun and dynamic role we are looking for a Guest Services Agent to assist guests in selecting their Whistler dream vacation; you will walk them through the process of selecting the perfect home, booking lift tickets, ski rentals and lessons, arranging grocery delivery or private chefs - and whatever else they may need. You are their vacation planning ‘specialist’ - that knowledgeable voice on the other end of the line when our owners and guests are in-resort and require assistance. At times you will also meet guests at their vacation home to provide an in-person home orientation to help them settle in upon their arrival.

- Provide top-level service when responding to calls, emails, and texts from homeowners and guests
- Perform guest home orientation tours
- Deliver VIP gifts, luggage, and guest requested items
- Be the “go-to” when guests have questions about home specifics, rates, availability and other reservations queries such as booking policies and procedures
- Create reservations and confirm guest details and travel dates, and other general administration tasks as required
- Inspect our beautiful properties to ensure they are ready for guest arrivals
The Ideal Candidate
- A willingness to learn about Whistler and all the local activities available
- Excellent command of the English language - written and verbal. Other languages are an asset.
