Snowscene is an Australian family owned business 

Originally founded by John and Joan Warbrick in 1984, Snowscene specialised in sending eager Queenslanders down to the Snowy Mountains on the famous ‘Snobus Ski Tours’.

Fast forward 25 years when Emily Warbrick the daughter of John and Joan took over the reins and expanded the travel business, sending Australians to New Zealand, Japan, and other northern hemisphere ski resorts.

In 2015 Emily’s husband Hayden Foy joined the business. Together they launched a retail arm to complement the existing travel business. 

Hayden and Emily have a passion for travel, skiing, and snowboarding. They share a desire to give others the chance to experience what it is that fuels their fire.

They pride themselves on being 100% independent, family-owned and operated business that specialises in high quality ski and snowboarding clothing and accessories. They have built the Snowscene range with brands they know and trust.

Snowscene’s specialised travel agency prepares customised itineraries and travel journeys to ski resorts worldwide, and their sister brand, Sunscene will take you anywhere that the sun shines.

Over the years the business has grown and evolved, but Snowscene still offers the same honest, reliable advice based on personal experience and outstanding customer service as it did in 1984. Snowscene has now been organising snow holidays for over 35 years and our valued staff have visited over 100 resorts worldwide.

Favourite Ski Resort / Ski Town
My favourite ski resorts are all in Colorado, United States – Park City, Snowmass & Aspen. All unique in character and great skiing at all three.
My favourite ski town is Queenstown. 

Snow Holiday Bucket List
We all need a holiday to look forward to… and my bucket list is to take my son to see Santa Claus village in Lapland, Norway. Followed up by a European ski resort experience at Club Med La Rosiere in France.

Favourite Après Ski Scene
‘Après ski’ is always my favourite time of day. The Limelight hotel Snowmass do a stellar job incorporating wine, music and a kids play area.

Recommended Experience
Heli skiing in Queenstown, dog sledding, snow mobile tours & drinking wine are all my favourite experiences no matter what ski resort I am in.

Favourite Ski Resort / Ski Town
Aspen, Colorado as it is a genuine ski town – ticks so many boxes with its history, great food bars and blue bird days.

Snow Holiday Bucket List
Telluride and Jackson Hole, USA

Favourite Après Ski Scene
This would have to be the Hotel Jerome, Aspen – not often you get to enjoy a whiskey in an establishment built in 1889.

Recommended Experience
Hiking the highland bowl (do your training) followed by Cloud 9 in Aspen just don’t forget your poncho and thick wallet.

Favourite Ski Resort / Ski Town
My favourite ski resort is Hakuba, Japan, so many mountains to choose from each day.  Favourite ski town is no doubt Queenstown, heaps of activities on offer and the views are amazing.

Snow Holiday Bucket List
A bucket list destination for me is one of the Club Med French ski resorts – Val Thorens, Val Morel or La Rosiere.

Favourite Après Ski Scene
What’s better than doing some great afternoon runs and skiing down to a bar for some pre dinner drinks by the fire while you plan out your night time escapades? Whistler, Canada is the pick for me for the best après ski scene.

Recommended Experience
If visiting the Nagano region of Japan, the Snow Monkeys are a must, and seeing an Ice Hockey game in Canada – memories that last forever.

Groups Team Leader

Favourite Ski Resort / Ski Town
My all-time favourite ski resort and ski town would have to be Kitzbuhel in Austria. Not only is the skiing great, with other resorts close by to check out but the old town atmosphere is always buzzing with lots of people.

Snow Holiday Bucket List
Like everyone I have lots, but I would love to experience a holiday in the North of Japan not only being able to enjoy some great powder but also the fantastic culture.

Favourite Après Ski Scene
Kitzbuhel hands down, however I think any resort is a great place to enjoy the Apres Ski Scene when you are with family and friends discussing the days highlights.

Recommended Experience
Dog sledding, Horse sledding, Wine bars, Local restaurants, First tracks, Schnapps or Mulled Wine by a fireplace or in an Ice Bar just to name a few.

Sasha Emmery

Product Manager & Travel Specialist

Favourite Ski Resort / Ski Town
I’m a big fan of the more traditional Japanese ski resorts like Nozawa Onsen, and quieter Myoko & Madarao.

Snow Holiday Bucket List
Queenstown, Wanaka, Mt Hutt… New Zealand is back on the radar for my next trip.

Favourite Après Ski Scene
Most definitely Chamonix but I did work a whole season there so a lot of great memories. Queenstown too has tremendous nightlife.

Recommended Experiences
For Japan: Stay in a Ryokan during your trip (traditional Japanese accommodation); Bathe in Japan’s hot spring onsens; Visit the Japanese Macaques in the forest; & Ride the Shinkansen (Bullet Train).
