Welcome To Our New Home!
Jack has been offered a position to be the painter for the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. We were playing around one night on the internet and came across the posting for the job. He decided to make an inquiry about it and everything quickly progressed from there.
We drove out for his interview a week later. The hotel put us up for the weekend. They interviewed Jack and said the job was his if he wanted it. There wasn’t a lot to think about. The Fairmont is an incredible company to work for with many perks and opportunities. The scenery isn’t too shabby either!
We will be living at the actual site of the Fairmont Hotel in an apartment located in their staff residences. Everything you need is provided for you there. The residences are like a small community in itself made up of many large buildings. It probably takes up more space than the actual hotel. We have a laundry mat, internet café, a bar and a gym.
We are really excited to start this new adventure in our lives. We are looking forward to all the winter activities, snow shoeing, skiing, dog sledding, and ice skating. The summer will be full of endless hiking and canoeing and of course the most amazing photographic scenery year round. We will get to meet lots of interesting people, the staff are from all over the world, as are the tourists.
Everyone knows each other in Lake Louise, so it will be a nice small community feel. Banff is only a 40 minute drive away, and Calgary 2 hours, allowing for lots of opportunities to get away on days off. Otherwise if we get bored there are apparently lots of bears to go outside and play with!
We will keep in touch with everyone and send out our contact information, new email, address, etc.
