The best snaps of the Sno’N’Ski famil

Hannah Edensor

Sno’n’Ski wowed 32 top selling agents on the ski road trip of a lifetime, covering four ski resorts across British Columbia in 7 days.

And Travel Weekly was along for the ride, which included a social media competition to win a GoPro, which went to the overall winner named below.

The Sno’n’Ski famil departed Brisbane and Sydney direct to Vancouver on Air Canada, and visited Big White, SilverStar, Sun Peaks and Whistler.

Skier and Snowboarder agents participated in lessons at each of the four resorts, got to know the mountains & properties, and enjoyed other activities included tubing, ice-skating, snowshoeing, zip lining, snowmobiling, and plenty of après ski.

The overall experience provides agents with the knowledge to identify the uniqueness between Whistler, Sun Peaks, SilverStar and Big White, and confidently sell each destination on its merits to their clients.

But now, for the four best Instagram snaps of the whole trip – drumroll please!

In fourth place…

Fourth place was Kirsty, the only person to wipe out and need ski patrol to come to her rescue in SilverStar.
