We realise that things are constantly changing at the moment, and often circumstances are beyond our control. A lot of decisions are affecting what we can do and where we can travel. We want to let you book with confidence. You can book any of our lessons or clinics knowing that if things change at the last minute you will be able to move, transfer or get a full refund. For whatever reason, if the Covid pandemic means that you are unable to attend your lesson or clinic, then on producing evidence of a positive PCR test, or following government level travel restrictions/resort closure, you know that you can easily change the booking, transfer it or get a full refund. This offer extends to family members who may have to miss a session to care for an ill child.
Contact us if you need any further info
Client Cancellation: If the cancellation is made at least four weeks prior to the date of the first booked lesson and the client has already paid in full, a full refund will be made. If the cancellation is made within the four weeks preceding the booking we will try to resell the session. If we can resell the space a full refund will be made to the client. If we cannot resell the space then no refund will be made and the full payment will be retained. All payments are made in Euros and TDCski are not responsible for any losses or gains incurred as the result of exchange rate changes.
Occasionally, TDCski coaches get ill or injured: If the coach that you are scheduled to ski with is ill or injured then it may not be possible for TDCski to run your sessions. We will notify you as soon as practicably possible if this were to happen. Sometimes illness and injuries happen at the very last minute. If this were the case then TDCski would do its best to find you a replacement coach or refund you in full.
Weather & Lift Operations: TDCski cannot be held responsible for the weather and will not cancel or refund sessions due to inclement conditions or limited piste/lift openings.
Client Illness/Injury: No refund will be made in the regrettable event of a client suffering an injury or illness (except for Covid - refer to Covid Flexible Booking Conditions) during the booking period. However, we will be happy to give you a letter for your insurance company.
Liability: All coaches are fully British and internationally qualified and hold the French ‘equivalence’. All coaches have private professional liability insurance. THE DEVELOPMENT CENTRE accepts no liability for the clients whilst under the professional instruction of the coach. Clients must ensure they have their own wintersports insurance including 3rd party and rescue cover for the nature of snowboarding that they wish to do.
Off-piste: Coaches will take every precaution possible to keep clients safe when snowboarding off the pistes. However, clients should be aware that the risk of an accident is increased with exposure to the uncontrolled variables of a less predictable environment. For clients wishing to snowboard off-piste, it is the clients’ responsibility to make sure that they are at the time of taking the lesson insured for off-piste snowboarding.
Covid-19 additional terms and conditions will apply to all bookings scheduled to happen between 1st November 2021 and 31st May 2022

Intermediate Snowboard Lesson
Owain instantly put me at ease with his friendly coaching style, he gave me lots of useful tips to work on. I was also running slightly late for my lesson but Owain ran into his lunch hour to make sure I got my full time. TDC as a whole are a very professional company. You get a follow up email after the lesson to consolidate what you’ve been taught. Highly recommend.

TDC Back Country Snowboard Guiding in Tignes
Owain was amazing. We spent the first hour running through avalanche skills, how to use our transceivers, searching, & probing then we spent the rest of the two days boarding amazing powder runs. Amazing... Can't recommend TDC snowboarding enough.

Heli boarding Wow!!!!!
I could not recommend heli boarding enough. Charlie the guide was awesome, the walk out once at the bottom was not the easiest but with Charlie carrying my board I enjoyed the walk, it made my holiday and was a tick off my bucket list.

I had two fantastic days out with Owain at TDC
One off piste to some great areas I had always wanted to do. Then another day trying out split boarding, which was fantastic, really getting out there! Love the adventure TDC bring, getting to exciting new places while also providing technical advice. Happy to recommend. See you next time!

Best ski instruction I've ever had!
What a fantastic three days. This week I developed more in terms of confidence, speed and technique than ever before. Gavin was fantastic at tailoring the lessons for two skiers at quite different levels. I would highly recommend. Friendly, supportive tailored instruction - I will definitely use TDC again!
