MySnow Tip: You dont have to be a skier to enjoy a mountain adventure

Daniel Walker
Managing Director

I have been with the company for 15 years. During that time, I have skied over 50 resorts all over the world. I originally stared in the company as Groups Manager, and co-ordinated the first Australia school ski trip to Hakuba, Japan and Panorama, Canada. I am is very hands on, and I really enjoy guiding our schools from time to time. My passion is for snow travel, and I love educating anyone on where they should go to get the most out of their holiday

MySnow Tip: No one does wings like Canadians

Luke Pritchard
Sales & Operations Manager

In 2016 I joined the MySnow crew in the product team, building supplier and resort relationships and developing the sales team in all things Japan, New Zealand and South America, before stepping into the Sales & Operations position. I am an avid skier and am especially passionate about Japan as I have done 3 seasons in Niseko with expert chopstick skills to prove it!

MySnow Tip: When in Japan you have to try the onsens. After a big day of skiing/boarding there is nothing better than a hot onsen. After soaking in an onsen you'll sleep better and your sore muscles will thank you the next day :hotsprings:

Emily Porter
National Sales Manager

I am the proud National Sales Manager with MySnow Holidays. I look after sales accounts across Australia and New Zealand, to all our destinations around the world. I have spent 10 awesome years now at Sno'n'Ski, and have been lucky enough to visit 31 ski resorts around the world. I enjoy working together to recommend the best accommodation to suit your client's needs, and love sharing tips for restaurants, bars and activities! I grew up skiing and snowboarding, our family ski trips are some of my all-time favourite memories. These days, my preferred riding is powder and trees! I just can't decide which destination is my favourite- there are so many unique characteristics to love about each resort and their vibrant villages, its too hard to pick only one

MySnow Tip There is never not an opportunity for style points on and off the mountain

Lauren Forde
Marketing Manager

I joined MySnow in 2019 and its been great to take my knowledge of travel marketing and specialise in ski. I oversee collateral, advertising and marketing material as well as looking after our social platforms, brochures and events. Coming from summer to ski its been great to learn all the ski lingo and destinations and I have become a professional with my apres ski ability. Still a beginner at snowboarding, but have definitely caught the powder bug (Japan will do that). Can't wait to take my next ski holiday!

MySnow Tip: If you are a beginner, I dont recommend taking a go-pro on a pole .. it's a hazard every time you fall!

MySnow Tip: When in Canada, Dog Sledding is an absolute must! Make sure to book super early so not to miss out.

Haley Hooper
Accounts Team Leader

I joined Mysnow in 2017 and since then have moved my way from the Reservations team to the Accounts Team Leader. I have worked in tourism since 2010, both here in Brisbane and back home in Vancouver, where I am originally from. I grew up skiing on the local Vancouver mountains and never stopped loving the snow! My role operates mainly behind the scenes, ensuring the accounts are balanced and the office runs smoothly. I have a passion for cooking and love bringing in treats for the office, especially anything maple flavoured. I have skied 11 resorts across North America, and I even speak fluent Canadian 'eh!

MySnow Tip: Timbits are a perfectly appropriate pre-ski breakfast when paired with a double-double!

George Wood
Product Team Leader

I have been with MySnow since 2015 and am responsible for the Canada, U.S.A & Europe ski areas. Originally from the UK, I was lucky enough to learn to ski at a young age with my family in France. I have multiple ski seasons under my belt working as a Ski Instructor and Ski boot fitter. I've travelled and skied extensively throughout Canada, USA, Europe and Japan pursuing a lifelong passion for snow (and après). Tree skiing, steeps and powder are what I look forward to the most, but ripping super dry, freshly groomed corduroy is hard to beat. It's difficult to pick a favourite resort but Whistler and Aspen have a great mix of amazing terrain with fun ski towns. Since becoming a father I have enjoyed experiencing the mountains with a new perspective. Late nights dancing in ski boots have been replaced with hot chocolates, tobogganing and carrying more stuff than ever. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences. From a lifelong Warren Miller fan, You can't buy happiness but you can buy a lift pass

MySnow Tip:Stop and grab a pizza and the most amazing cookie at Up 4 Pizza, Snowmass. At 11,835 feet near the top of Snowmass mountain, the best cookies are baked fresh straight from the pizza oven.

Amanda Carroll
Product Assistant Team Leader

I have been with MySnow Holidays since 2019, having already worked in the Travel Industry for over 8 years. I fell in love with snow on my typical Year 12 Ski Trip, which then lead me to ski New Zealand and then a working holiday to Lake Tahoe, California during my University Studies. My love of travel and the snow together makes MySnow Holidays the perfect workplace and being able to talk to clients everyday about their snow holiday plans is the greatest perks of the job. My area of expertise is in the USA, Canada and Europe areas; however I do have great knowledge on Japan and NZ as well.

MySnow Tip: Always make sure you take advantage of the freshly baked cookies and hot chocolates that many USA ski resorts hand around at the end of a great ski day!

Grace Kearney
Marketing Executive

Card image cap

I joined the team at MySnow Holidays at the beginning of 2018, bringing my love for snowboarding and previous travel industry experience with me. Having started in the reservations team planning ski-cations to some of the top ski destinations around the world, I then progressed to the marketing department where I could unleash my creative juices. I have also spent a few years snowboarding and travelling through Canada, and been lucky to experience some of the best ski resorts on offer. However, I could never pick my favourite resort, as long as the snow is fresh, the sun in shinning and the beers are cold you are going to have the most perfect day on the slopes.

MySnow Tip: Getting up for first chair can be a challenge on those frosty mornings. But there is nothing betting then experiencing first chair!

Daniel Lane
Product Executive

Having worked at MySnow now for over two years, I have been fortunate enough to ski with the company in three continents. Having tried skiing from a young age, I fell in love with the crisp mountain air, the rush of adrenaline and the tranquil energy of a winter mountain. No matter where you go or what you are looking for, there is something for everyone and MySnow can get you there. European resorts boast unique après culture, Japan has the powder, North America has the long runs and NZ has the activities. While it’s hard to pick just one resort, my current favourite is Sun Peaks in BC, Canada. The skiable area, diversity of runs, activities and après, has something for everyone coupled with great on-snow accommodation.

MySnow Tip: There’s something magical about an outdoor jacuzzi while the snow lightly falls, be sure to book a house or apartment with one in North America!

Marty Freyling
Reservations Team Leader

Card image cap

I joined the MySnow team in 2015 as a ski specialist and am now the reservations team leader. Before working here, I spent 5 years living in Canada working at Whistler and SilverStar. My favourite days on the mountain are sunny spring days shredding with friends doing laps through the terrain park and ending the day with beer on a patio. I also love powder days! After years in the industry, I have in-depth knowledge of ski resorts all over the world, and am most passionate about Canada and USA resorts. My favourite resort would be Aspen Snowmass, followed closely by Whistler - so ask me for personalised recommendations.

MySnow Tip: When in Whistler, make sure you stop by the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Shop and try their chocolate bear paws! They are amazing!

Judy Cox
Ski Reservations Expert & Team Leader

I have been with MySnow since 2010 and has been a travel agent for 33 years after starting my career with Youth Hostels Association and also working for major travel agencies such as Thomas Cook, Ansett and Flight Centre. I have also lived and worked in Canada for 18 months and visited quite a few ski resorts over the years!

Favourite Resort: My favourite ski resort is Sun Peaks, nothing beats the last run home at the end of day down Exhibition or Cruiser with a view across the village as the set starts to set. My second favourite would be Lake Louise and the town of Banff, the views are majestic - no matter which way you look.

James (Jimbob) Uhrig
Ski Reservation Expert

I have been with MySnow for close to 2 years, bringing along former experience within the Travel Sector. Before working in travel I lived and breathed Canadian snow where I did seasons in Banff working in in hotels and paying forward my ski knowledge as a ski instructor. I am an Expert Skier preferring a Freeride style and loves being in deep POW.

MySnow Tip: Poutine is a must for any day on the slopes in Canada.

Jono Edwards
Ski Reservation Expert

Card image cap

I joined the team in 2022, and have previously worked here before the world went into lockdown in early 2020. My first foray into snow travel and ski culture was when I moved to Canada just after the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, where I ended up working two seasons at Big White in British Columbia. Ever since then I have been completely obsessed with the mountains and the snow. I really enjoy assisting clients with their ski holidays by finding out what matters most when it comes to their ski experience. I specialise in advising on Japanese and Canadian ski destinations, but have a vast knowledge of all our destinations. My favourite resort is Big White, but wherever there’s fresh snow is the best resort on the day.

MySnow Tip: Never underestimate the convenience of ski-in ski-out accommodation, it’s worth the extra money to not carry your equipment everywhere!

Hamish Tims
Ski Reservation Expert

I was a latecomer to the world of snow sports – only seeing snow for the first time in 2015 and trying my hand at snowboarding in 2017, but I fell in love with it enough to pack up and move to Japan within a month of getting back from my trip. I loved every minute of my 3 seasons in Niseko, and went to many other big and small resorts around Japan to snowboard. I also visited Canada in 2012 and it absolutely took my breath away! I’m an outdoor lover who cycles and runs in the summer, but if I had my choice it would be winter all year round. My perfect day would be riding out the gates at Hanazono after a big powder dump overnight, followed by a big bowl of spicy ramen and then a beer in the onsen with friends at the end of a long day. It doesn’t get any better than that!

MySnow Tip: Buy a portable boot dryer online to take on your trip – there’s nothing worse than having damp boots or shoes when you’re about to head out for the day!

Sebastian Gonzalez
Ski Reservation Expert

Seb started his outdoor recreation career as a snowboard instructor and white water rafting guide, he has done a few seasons in Snowmass and recently also worked at Mt Buller here in Australia. In a bid to continue talking about his passion for the snow & share his experience, Seb decided a career in snow travel was the next step.

MySnow Tip: Ask me anything about Snowmass!

Matt Speakman
Ski Reservation Expert

Card image cap

Boasting an amazing 33 years travel industry experience, Matt joined the Team in 2022. The move was an amazing opportunity for Matt to combine his incredible travel experience with his passion for the snow. When he was a young boy, Matt's family went on a snow holiday... and the rest is history! He quickly worked out you could have way more fun in snow than you could with sand and when he became older, learnt there was just as much fun to be had at night, after you finished playing in the snow all day. Some consider the birth of their child to be momentous in their life and it probably is, but it still doesn’t compare to the first time you ski proper powder! Matt love to talk about skiing, but it’s the experiences he’s had off the slopes that provided him with knowledge that can help create your perfect Winter holiday.

MySnow Tip: Always eat breakfast and then take lunch on the mountain at 11.30 to beat the rush. When everyone else comes into eat at lunch, the mountain will open up and the lift queues quieten down! Wherever possible, look for a property that has a convenient storage facility such as a slope-side ski room, ski-valet or on mountain lockup.

Kirri Mulford
Ski Reservation Expert

After a brief snow exposure at the age of 11, my passion for skiing came alive with my Yr12 Ski Trip to Perisher. Fast forward 15 years and I’ve been fortunate to travel to a variety of different ski resorts around the world. Each resort is magical in its own way, but I do have a soft spot for Queenstown and all of the adventure it has to offer. I love to live vicariously through my clients combining two of my favourite things – snow and travel!

MySnow Tip: Maximise your slope-time and save some dollars by sticking a banana and choccy/muesli bar in your jacket pocket to snack on the slopes.!

Mason Collins
Ski Reservation Expert

My snow journey began when I was 10 years old with a school trip to Perisher where I became fascinated with everything snow sports. Since that moment I made it my goal to snowboard in as many beautiful and interesting locations as possible. I have now snowboarded across 4 different continents in over 5 countries and don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon! I love thick and powdery runs, amazing scenery and creating everlasting memories I will cherish forever.

MySnow Tip: When visiting Zermatt, always have a bar of Toblerone chocolate handy for a cheeky picture with the actual mountain (The Matterhorn) in the background.

Tamara May
Ski Reservation Expert

After yearly family holidays in Jindabyne, Vail and Queenstown growing up, after finishing uni, I began the seasonal lifestyle working a few seasons in Perisher. Following that in 2014, I headed over to Canada and ended up completing two seasons at Big White. Whilst over there, I also got to venture out to Silverstar Sunshine Village in Banff and also spent summers in Lake Louise and Jasper. Ski holidays have given me some of my fondest travel memories, and I am excited to help you plan your dream snow holiday.

MySnow Tip: After seeking out some of the best pow you’ve ever ridden at Big White, hit up Snowshoe Sam’s. It is THE place to be for Apres.
