Our bike shop is an open/modern concept based in the heart of the Upper Village beside a great Bistro and Pub. It’s the place to be.

What do our staff think about working for Arbutus Routes?

Ali Adams

“Warning- only work for Arbutus if you love working in a quality and professional team who are at the top of the game delivering biking in BC. I’ve spent three years as Guide enjoying what I do daily and that is thanks to the support, opportunity and positive energy atmosphere provided there.”

“I feel proud to be part of such a fantastic organization and in a team who focuses on making each summer season the best yet. Working here is not just a job, we ride together, give each other trail advice and make the summer season memorable each year together. Arbutus Routes has such highly qualified mechanics, bike guides and everyone works so well together”.

Dani Huff

“Prior to moving to Whistler, my role for 6 years was connecting people and sharing a brand with those who worked for me and our greater community. What this showed me is there’s a big difference between simply running a shop versus being a community hub, which is what drew me to work for Arbutus Routes. There’s a genuine pride amongst the staff because there is heart and passion in what we do. We have a big love for bikes, and that’s exactly what we want to share with everyone that walks into the shop.”

We do require previous proven experience in a retail bicycle repair environment, preferably in a MTB based shop. Essential skills include brake bleeds, suspension servicing, wheel building and downhill bike repair experience. We offer on the job training to bring you up-to speed with our fleet and workshop standards; but you’ll need solid skills and repair efficiency to start.

Retail & Rental Specialists

Do you nerd out on the latest bike gear? Do you help strangers with friendly directions and a point in the right direction?

We’re hiring for Full-time frontline Retail and Rental positions. You’ll meet and greet our daily guests and be setting up bikes to get them rolling. You’ll need a great attitude, a knowledge of the bike industry and be keen to learn.

Trail Guides

Do you want to get paid to ride? (Silly Question) Are you a local Whistler guide looking to step up to the Singletrack guiding game? Have you gone Out There and know Why Johnny Can’t Read?

We pride ourselves on our quality of our guide team and trail tours. We’re currently hiring full and part-time guides for 2019. You won’t be spending your days lapping Easy does it – Our tours will take guests anywhere from Lost-Lake to Westside to Squamish and beyond. Get in touch if you have what it takes (along with your PMBI II qualifications and Wilderness/Equivalent First Aid. Class IV drivers an asset). We reserve the right to quiz your Sea to Sky trail knowledge 😉
