>I'm heading up to find some work in Canada (Revelstoke?) this winter,

I just came back from a year living in Revelstoke!
Winter is frickin awesome, I hope you're already there if you want to find a job fast.... After early-mid november it can be a huge waiting game as everyones already hired for the season.

There can be big avy danger for ice climbs in canada... Ice climbs are usually in gullies, so have all the snowfall funneling into them...

If you are living in Revy and ski or board, you probably won't get too much ice climbing in, It's too warm in Revy, and The roads are REALLY scary to drive along around there... You'll see what I mean. We left Revy once all winter due to road conditions.

In summer it's a totally different story, It's pretty easy to find work in may/early june after the shitty shoulder season once the hill closes and theres still too much snow lying around to do anything...

I went there thinking winter would be awesome (it was), but summer was even better!

About 500 climbs within 20 mins of Revy, mostly closly bolted sport routes 1-15 pitch (mostly 1).
2 hour drive to Skaha which is cool vertical wall crimper climbing, and way more year round than Revy.


p.s. check out the stoke list for houses and jobs.
