Helen & Nigel Furlong – Ski Specialists and Personal Travel Agents
Action – Adventure – Sports – Luxury Long Haul
Our primary aim is to arrange a holiday for our customers that meet their specific needs as closely as possible – on suitability of resorts, properties and price; all with a healthy dose of old fashioned Customer Service!
Between us we have over 45 years’ experience working for tour operators such as Crystal and Neilson. We worked in many North American and European ski resorts and non-ski destinations including Australia, Egypt and Barbados! For a number of years we worked in the School/Group skiing and sports trip sector – a dream job for sports fanatics like us!
We have enjoyed winter sports for over 30 years – with Helen mainly on skis and Nigel on the ‘dark side’ on a snowboard, recently converted to skiing! Our daughter, Georgia, has been skiing and snowboarding with us since she was a toddler and now skis for Cardiff Ski Club and is a regular on the junior race circuit. Here she is picking up Bronze in the recent Welsh Open Championships
So as a family we eat sleep and dream SKI, MOUNTAINS and SNOW 24/7 – here are some older snaps
