Sno’N’Ski agent famil comes to a close

Hannah Edensor

The amazing adventure that was the inaugural Sno’N’Ski mega famil has come to a close after a full on week of skiing, boarding and socialising.

After exploring Big White, SilverStar, Sun Peaks and Whistler Blackcomb resorts, and all the ski-in ski-out hotels at each, the 32 attendees on the famil slept nice and soundly on the flights home to Sydney and Brisbane.

Arriving from Sun Peaks into Whistler via a very scenic bus ride, agents enjoyed site inspections at Hilton, the plush Four Seasons, Fairmont Hotel, Crystal Lodge and Listel Lodge.

They also explored the massive mountains, rode the Peak2Peak gondola, and enjoyed Apres and delicious meals for the two nights in the village.

Check out some of the final photos below, and stay tuned for the winning social media snaps from the trip (and see who won the top prize of a GoPro!)

Aboriginal tourism toolkit for agents

by Vanessa Bussoletti

Our boss gave us a toolkit for writing better article blurbs, but we tossed it in the bin. Explains why we make such bad puns, we guess.

Which reality show is giving NSW the spotlight?

by Vanessa Bussoletti

Sadly, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ never responded to our audition video, but it seems NSW is having a bit more luck in the celebrity department.

Will travel insurance cover checked-in electronics?

by Hannah Edensor

The question of the day is, ‘Will travel insurance be there when your checked-in laptop breaks?’ That and ‘What will we have for lunch today?’

Experiential travel big driver for visitors to this nation

by Amy Bryant

The reason we go to places is because someone’s kicked us out of the house we’re staying at rent free. Experiential travel seems like a better reason.

We hope the pilot of the plane swaggered into the cabin and shouted, “I have had it with these motherf**kin’ snakes on this motherf**kin’ plane!” but probably not.

Sydney finally beats Melbourne as top destination

It’s a rivalry as old as David and Goliath, except it’s much younger and comes with more beards and coffee breaks.
