Hi, I have two cordyline australis plants that look like they're dying. The heavy snowfall at the beginning of the year was enough to break/bend all the leaves downwards. They now just hang down and both plants are brown with dry dead looking leaves. Can anything be done to save them?

Just leave until early June. If alive, they will re-shoot from living tissue further down the stem or failing this, from the base.
