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!)

by Hannah Edensor

At least nine Victorian tourist attractions have been hit by a credit card scam. We too were busted for buying clothes under our boss’s name but only to avoid buyers shame in the office.

What can you actually take from hotel rooms?

We could tell you this was an exclusive insight into what you can get away with stealing from hotels, but we’d be lying. We nicked it off an online forum.

by Hannah Edensor

As 56% of travellers get stoked about Qantas’ inflight Wi-Fi, our concern lies with the other 44% who clearly hate looking at cats on YouTube.

Cruising for young travellers is finally here

This first of its kind cruise brand had us at ‘Wine & Paint Classes’ because it combines two of our favourite things. Well, one, we hate painting.

All of our Facebook friends’ photos inspired us to travel. And by ‘friends’ we mean the public profiles we stalk because we only have 4 friends.

Is your boss the Executive of the Year?

We tried to nominate ourselves for this award, but apparently ignoring the boss and pretending to be your own boss doesn’t actually make you CEO.

Big Fat Hotel Wrap

If you read one thing today make sure it’s Travel Weekly’s hotel wrap. Actually, your medication instructions and train timetable probably take priority.
