BackgroundHotel housekeepers

The Red Tree Lodge is 43 bedroom hotel based in central Fernie. The property offers 3 star standard accommodation plus a wide range of facilities more often associated with a hostel such as a guest kitchen, free laundry, games room, lounge, pool, hot tub and sauna. The hotel is popular with mountain sports enthusiasts, families and business travelers.

The hotel is owned by a travel company called NONSTOP Adventure which offers ski & snowboard courses in western Canada, New Zealand and France. During the winter season the hotel is home to NONSTOP’s course participants resulting in high occupancy, and a warm ‘lodge’ atmosphere. Summer occupancy has been almost doubling year on year and now represents as busy a period as the winter season resulting in a rewarding year round work environment with plenty of potential.
