    Exceptional Lessons from TDC

    So far this season I have been fortunate enough to have three lessons with TDC Instructor David Walker and they have all been brilliant. In both the theory and its practical application, David clearly communicates exactly what you need to do to bring your skiing on to the next level. He is kind, patient and fun to ski with. They have been a pleasure.

    Best ski guide ever

    A group from the US hired Steve for our first day guided tour of the ski area. Besides being an excellent skier he was super knowledgeable about history, culture, best runs, etc. Well worth the money to be brought up to speed so quickly and with such good humor.

    Amazing time learning to ski with TDC…

    We had an amazing time learning to ski with Steve from TDC and his patience in getting the three of us up from a standing start, to skiing within three lessons was awesome and all this whilst sharing his knowledge of this beautiful area at the same time! A great experience & we would definitely recommend TDC to anyone else wanting lessons in Val D’Isere and we hope to be back for more ourselves soon.

    Absolutely first class

    First time skiing and booked with TDC. Met Dave day one and instantly felt at ease. Looked after all of us, spent time moving us on, was patient and encouraging. Would recommend anyone to book with Dave and your holiday will be better for it. Thank you.

    Excellent coaching

    I skied with both Ross and Kim over a 2 week period January / February 2023. Putting this into context, I had a horrible ski accident last March, and was a little anxious and tentative. Ross immediately put me at ease, and had me back playing in the powder by day 2; his coaching was excellent and restored a lot of my confidence. Kim followed that up in week 2 and really helped me to work on my technique. Anna in the office makes organising coaching so straightforward and is so efficient. Makes life that little bit easier! Highly, highly recommend skiing with TDC. So much so that I’m going back in March!
