Our Covid-19 Policy

Book with Confidence

We realise that things are constantly changing at the moment, and there are decisions being made that are out of our hands. A lot of these decisions are affecting what we can do and where we can travel.

We want you to book with confidence.

For whatever reason, if the Covid pandemic means that things change and the lesson or clinic is not possible, then you know that you can easily change the booking, transfer it or get a full refund.

Contact us if you need any further info [email protected]

Our Standard T’s and C’s for the 2021 season have the above Covid-19 policy as an addition. View our T’s and C’s here.

    Fantastic Service and Instructors

    I have used TDC a couple of times over the years. Both times off piste. Their mix of technical advice and fun was excellent. I can totally recommend TDC...

    What a Great Experience

    I did 3 days of TDC group lessons with Gavin, he was brilliant, very attentive and improved my skiing a lot. I would recommend them in a heartbeat...

    Terry was a Fantastic Ski Instructor

    Super helpful, patient, kind and most importantly able to connect with me, in order for me to understand the technical information required to actually be able to ski.

    Lauder, a Brilliant Ski Instructor

    We had two wonderful ski lessons with Lauder. Probably the best lessons I have ever had. Lauder enabled me to feel confident again on skis which made me realise how much I loved skiing.

    Excellent Ski School

    Just spent three days with Kim on a Development Plus clinic and after skiing for decades she gave me tips and advice that made an immediate change to my skiing.
