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!)
