Myself and my partner shared 3 private lessons with Liam and had a fantastic time. This is the 2nd year we've had lessons with Liam and both times we've been really pleased with our progress. If you're booking private lessons with TDC in Val d'Isere I'd definitely recommend Liam if he's available, regardless of skiing level - if we're in Val d'Isere again anytime soon, booking another lesson with Liam will be top of our to-do list. trwoodward, Trip Advisor

I enjoyed an excellent and memorable afternoon with TDC coach Rich in March. As is typical with good instruction and coaching I only needed a few key tips to think about and my (basic) off-piste skiing became stronger and felt better. It was one of the most enjoyable ski experiences I’ve had in a few years and I felt my off-piste had taken a comfortable nudge forward. Jenster, London

Terry was a fantastic ski instructor. Super helpful, patient, kind and most importantly able to connect with me in order for me to receive and understand the technical information required to actually be able to ski. After 5 days of three hour sessions, Terry had transformed this total beginner into a competent skier who had a whole lot of fun along the way. Kate G, Trip Advisor

I have used TDC a couple of times over the years (instructors: Joe and Steve). Both times off piste. Their mix of technical advice and fun was excellent. I can totally recommend TDC as I have used many other ski schools in Val d'Isere and they can be considered one of the best. Riaan J, Trip Advisor

Lena is the most awesome instructor, she gives you confidence whether a beginner or experienced skier, and tailors her instruction accordingly. She makes every moment fun and a great learning experience. I would recommend her with no hesitation at all. Suzie A, Trip Advisor

Scott taught both my wife and me, but separately in a 1:1 lesson. Both of us really enjoyed our time with him and most importantly of all we improved. He's a very experienced and capable teacher, who can adapt so well to the person he's teaching - encouraging with my wife and pushing me to my limits and then helping me learn from the experience!

My partner and I had 3 excellent private lessons with Giles last week. This follows on from having 3 excellent private lessons with Gavin last year in Tignes. Giles helped both of us hone our technique and gain more confidence on the slopes. He was friendly, concise and a great teacher. We both felt that he helped us enormously and highly recommend The Development Centre. Great ski school with great teachers. fully_2001, Trip Advisor

Colin was absolutely first class. We have used a number of instructors over the years and Colin ties joint first for the best. So many people on the piste could benefit from his tuition. Shame they don’t know it! Ian, London
