The Winter 2021/22 programme will look reassuringly familiar to those who ski with us regularly and has taken into account those groups who had already requested spaces for 2021/22 when it became clear that last season was going to be written off.
For those skiers who haven't been on an Ali Ross Skiing Clinic before, you may note that we offer just one ski course each week ; this is because the unique advantage of the Skiing Clinics is that Ali Ross doesn't just lend his name to the system and thereafter clones take over, but actually teaches every lesson, whether group or private, himself. This not only guarantees consistency of information and feedback, but critically, with essential technical insights, can help you to become the accomplished skier you always aspired to be. Be warned - there are no magic wands or short-cuts in this process and it requires a certain determination to ditch skiing habits acquired over perhaps many winters- but if ever there was a more auspicious time to start the next phase of your skiing life, next season must surely be it. Don't take our word for it, come and join us and find out for yourself.
Winter is long gone and with it the ski season that never was- a historic first, for reasons that we could never have imagined just over a year ago. Springtime,though, is the best season to be looking ahead and there are solid reasons for hoping that next winter we can enjoy our sport again with renewed enthusiasm, even if it entails living with a 'new' normal on the slopes and in the resort.
In that respect, we are in the realms of the unknown , but we can at least present a plan of something more tangible to look forward to- the new schedule of ski courses for 2021/22 , which can be found on the Courses and Dates page, together with descriptions of each type of Clinic on offer.
Temporary changes to Booking Conditions
We made temporary changes to our Ts and Cs for last season, which will continue to be reviewed as the Covid situation evolves.
The following extract on Covid -19 is taken from our Booking conditions, which should be read in full ; if you have any further questions, please contact us by email .
Coronavirus (Covid -19) - for bookings after Ist January 2021. Al Ross Skiing Clinics will offer a 100% course fee credit valid for the season following the cancellation, or a refund, should the resort have to close and/or restrictions are imposed on travel by national Governments at short notice due to Covid 19, which prevent you from arriving in Tignes to start the course, or if these events occur during the course, when a pro rata credit or refund for the time missed will be offered.
All non-Covid related cancellations remain subject to our standard Terms and Conditions.
Please note that (in the FCDO's wording), "disinclination to travel" is not acceptable as a valid reason for cancellation in any circumstances.
