Last Updated: January 9, 2019

Starting March 2019.

We own and operate during the tourism season of the summer a local restaurant in beautiful Carcross Yukon, surrounded by the lakes and mountains of Canada's Coastal Mountains. Our helpx positions involve assisting with off season and during the season construction projects that support the ongoing growth of our restaurant business that has undergone significant changes each season due to significant annual growth. Our restaurant is made of primarily recycled / reclaimed materials and many things that we build for the decor are one-of-a-kind creations that enhance the regional atmosphere of the restaurant. We also have opportunities out at our lakeside cabin property clearing some brush around our cabins and yard work.

Nature of Help Needed: Could relate to helping collect firewood for our outdoor salmon bake, or helping to sand and refinish wood projects. We have other staff around onsite who work at the restaurant during the operating season so there is often someone to join for a hike, or to go fishing etc. (it is a pretty social place but not at all crazy as we put our energy into our projects and having fun in the great outdoors.

Ideal Helper: Ideally people who come to our location to help are people who enjoy working with their hands, often in the outdoors and know a bit about construction of at least are comfortable running sanders etc or in staining or painting, gardening, or at the minimum are happy to learn and develop new skills

Accommodation: Separate cabin with electricity but no running water in your sleeping unit. You will have access to our house for showers, washrooms, meals etc. Couples are welcome or friends traveling together We are a family of 4 with two really lovely young boys age 10 and 8.

Extras: Access to bikes, canoes, kayaks etc in the summer and there are many beautiful trails in the area close to our property.
If you love world class nature then Carcross, Yukon, just 45 minutes from Whitehorse is a great place to spend some time.

We expect at around 5 hours of help, 5 days a week for accommodation/meals and access to our outdoor gear during time off.
Some helpers have helped for longer hours on less days and then had 3-4 days off in a row in order to go camping etc. There are lots of places to go camping for free in the wilderness that surrounds our town and we know all the best places.

Time Period:

We need help starting in March 2019 and ideally helpers stay for a minimum of two weeks with longer stays of a month preferred. There will be work opportunities all the way through until September 2019.
