Canada Experiences...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, i'm working in Whistler and Squamish in BC for a local company as a climber and groundsman, only been here since May 2011 but it's amazing. Super hard work but rewarded with unreal views, people and wildlife. Studied and climbed for 3 years in England and wouldn't change it, even though haven't had to limb walk all year!

I was just wondering if anybody else had any experiences of arb work in Canada? Had a few crazy tree hippies that got upset we were hurting the dead trees overhanging the highway once... :001_tt2:

Only a few?, the further South you head the more crazy they are and some you want to watch out for other reasons as well:sneaky2: Enjoy your time in BC, very beautiful.

Thanks lads, yea its pretty good over here! Not much work in the winter though, but the summer is amazing. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a break from the UK. Trees are a 'little' bit bigger though!

Haven't seen or heard of any horse logging im afraid dude, there's bunch of logging here though... There are a lot of loggers in Squamish, i'm sure a quick email to a company there could give you a better answer.

 

Glad to hear you had a great Canadian experience Chaffey! Ride on! :thumbup:
