The Development Centre

By Norma Green

Many of you will know that Phil Harrison and Giles Lewis are founding partners of TDC in Val d'Isère, but were keen skiers with SCoM from being pre-teenagers up until heading permanently for the Alps. Their business has expanded due to their excellent reputation and there are to be 10 fully qualified BASI instructors in Val this coming season.

The really exciting news is that TDC are setting up a second location this season in Tignes. It will be known as TDC Tignes. The instructors, again experienced Basi 1, will be Gavin Lewis (Giles' brother) and James Stewart-Hunter. They have both, for the last three seasons, worked for Summit Ski School in Zermatt.
