Training with TDC

What is the TDC Seasonaire Programme?

 

The seasonnaire programme was created to give all seasonnaires in town the chance to achieve their goals on the snow. It’s all too easy to arrive in town with the best of intentions, but to find that at the end of March your riding hasn’t progressed as you would have liked it to. By setting up a series of sessions with like minded and similar level seasonnaires, we see people transform their skiing or riding to another level.

 

The sessions start after the chaos of New Year week and continue each week for 5 weeks, building on what has been learnt before. Each group will have a coach who leads their sessions and tracks their progress, building a bond between the coach and the rider which allows real and long term development.  


 

Is it suitable for all levels of skiers/boarders?

 

Sure. We have found that there is not much demand for a beginner group since even absolute beginners have worked out how to get down a green or blue run by the time New Year is done. We have sign up sessions pre Christmas and try to find a group for any level of skier or boarder.

 

If you’ve not skied before and need help before the New Year, then we also run some promo sessions before Christmas for staff in resort (no charge). Get in touch and we can hook you up alongside your colleagues or in a mixed group.

 

What's the advantage of getting lessons early in the season?

 

You get better, you can ride harder and safer and you can achieve things that were previously out of your reach.



Any advice for newbies before they start their lessons?

 

Come along to one of our sign up sessions so we can fit you in to the right group early on and meet some of our coaches. 

Try and get on a promo session that we run for partner staff in resort.  

Be on equipment that suits you, good boots are particularly important for both skiing and snowboarding

Rock up feeling fresh and keen rather than tired and emotional (hungover)

 

Who will I be taught by?

 

You’ll be taught by one of the TDC coaches that suits your level. We have a team of full time professional coaches who can each take any level of skier, we also have a team of specialist boarding coaches.

If you have a coach request, then we can take that into account.

 

How do you group people and what are the group sizes?

 

Group sizes are small, maximum of 6 people.  Don't worry if none of your friends are a similar level to you as this is a great opportunity to meet others that have the same goals and level as you.  So people more interested in off piste and touring will go together and people who want to work on their technique on piste will go together.

Most groups are keen to do a bit of everything and do what suits the conditions. The goals of the groups will evolve along with the sessions and with the conditions we have on the slopes.  


 

Can you teach me to shred in the park?

 

Sure, we have a couple of coaches who can do this.

 

How about off-piste?

 

Definitely. We work a lot off piste and have many coaches who love skiing the terrain we have access to. From entry level to steep and deep, we can do off piste.  We can also teach you some off piste safety so you can start to understand where will be good to head when you're not with one of our coaches.

 

And how much better value is it than just taking regular lessons?


Regular privates cost 285 Euros per three hour session for 6 people (235 for 1 or two people). Regular group lessons cost 235 for 3 sessions.  

The seasonnaires program costs 200 Euros for 5x three hour sessions, which blows our normal pricing away. It is set up to maximise value for seasonnaires, in a group of friends. The sessions are programmed in to the planner and wont be bumped by regular clients, so you can plan your weeks around them.
