We're Helen and Nigel, and we would personally like to welcome you to our website; which we hope will become a regular port of call for you. We are Ski, Snowboard and Adventure travel specialists with over 40 year's experience working within the travel industry.
We have worked for British tour operators such as Airtours, Crystal and Neilson in many North American and European ski resorts and non-ski destinations including Australia, North America, Egypt and Barbados! We are thrilled that sport and travel are our hobbies as well as our business!
We have enjoyed winter sports for over 25 years and have travelled extensively during this time; we can honestly say we haven’t been to a ski resort that we don’t like in fact we always find something attractive about each place we visit. Our personal observations and direct feedback from our regular customers help us to 'match' the resort to our customer thus ensuring our customer chooses the most suitable holiday for their specific needs.
Our personal favourite ski destinations and resorts include the Italian Dolomites, the Arlberg region of Austria, California - in particular Tahoe and Mammoth resorts, Banff and Lake Louise in Canada, the Milky Way ski area as well as all of France and Andorra of course. We also have a very soft spot for Lapland, Norway and Sweden which are unusual, quirky and quite fascinating. We also try at least 3 different ski areas each season and keep up to date on new resorts and properties and any developments in established resorts. The resorts we have visited and skied are too numerous to list so our 'to do' list is very short and includes Japan, Chile, Utah and parts of Switzerland! In addition to skiing we have taken part in and organised all sorts of sporting vacations such as the British Lions Tours, the Ashes and cricket tours, Rugby World Cups, Cycling, water sports and action/adventure/trekking/walking - the list goes on. Just ask!
We are highly experienced ski and adventure travel agents - experts in our field. We have built our business on repeat customers and we have done this through offering a high level of expert advice and service to all our customers before, during and after the holiday is booked.
With Co-operative Travel support we source our holiday deals independently, without affiliation to any particular tour or chalet operator, thus providing the widest choice of holiday options to our customers. Our primary aim is to sell our customers a holiday that meets their specific needs as closely as possible albeit suitability of resorts, properties and price.
We work with highly reputable tour operators who we have developed special relationships with over the years. We offer exclusive deals, product expertise, and a personal service at highly competitive prices for groups and individuals to Europe and beyond, ski, lakes and mountains, adventure and activity. We will do all the work for you at times and in ways that suit you best - fully flexible. We can take multiple deposits and payments for groups, we are always the first point of contact for any queries or questions, we know your file and account in great detail.

As we run our own business through Mid-counties Co-operative you get the added security of working with a long-standing and ethical brand who is fully ABTA and ATOL bonded for your security and peace of mind. Not only that but we also offer a great loyalty scheme, whereby you sign up for your share-holding membership and are able to use this each and every time you book through us accumulating points that convert into pounds that can then come back into your pocket; a little thank you for your loyalty and support.
