With the years of experience, I quickly encircle expectations and needs for each. I am eager to make spend a good moment to my pupils and to make them proud of themselves. What a pleasure to see beginners progressing with the smile!
Fascinated by mountain climbing, I also specialized in the practice of the off-piste skiing.

Spent two days with Sebastien and in this time my skiing vastly improved and learn many new techniques to aid my skiing and my approach to different types of skiing pistes/off piste. Sebastien has a great local knowledge and really easy to get on with all this makes for a great skiing lesson.

Sebastien was an absolute star last week. The communication was good, he was very friendly and he made my kids laugh and had fun with them. He left my husband and I join in the lessons so we could learn where to go and which were the best slopes for us and took my kids over the bumpy bits which they loved. Would definitely use him again when we go back to Avoriaz, Thank you

Sebastien was an absolutely fantastic instructor!! My 7 year old son had never skied before and also has a disability yet made amazing progress. Seb quickly worked out the right approach for him and we felt completely at ease leaving our son with him. The most important thing was that he made the lessons so much fun that our little one was desperate to go back each day. We plan to return next year and want to book lessons with Sebastien for our whole family. Highly recommended!

Sebastien was an excelent teacher for our boy. He saw the need of our boy and adusted the instructions to the needed level. After the lesson our boy had a lot of confidense and instead of snowplough the slope he did parrallel turnes and stops. Sebastien was just wat we needed to get our boy a level up in skiing.

Sebastien was fantastic and highly recommend to anyone looking for a private lesson. My dad and I were beginners with about 8 hours of lessons completed at home. Sebastien consistent adapted to how we were progressing and didn’t just stick to a standard lesson plan. We also professed at different rates and Sebastien was able to give us slightly different challenges throughout the day to keep us both learning. Sebastien also has excellent local knowledge and was able to recommend other runs/areas to do. A really nice guy and highly recommended!

Sebastian provided lessons to my children (6&7 years old) for 2 hours a day. He was brilliant with them and they took to him immediately. He was punctual and experienced and left my husband and I feeling confident that our children were in good hands. Would definitely use him again if we revisited the area.

Sebastien gave my mum 3 private ski lessons at the beginning of our family ski trip. She was a complete beginner and her aim was to be confident enough to join the rest of the family on Green and easy Blue runs by the end of the week. Mum was a nervous skier but Sebastien put her at ease and by day 4 she had achieved what she had hoped for. Sebastien listened to how she was managing each day and planned her lessons accordingly. When we return to Avoriaz I'm sure she will want to call on Sebastien again to carry on her lessons to build up her skills and confidence some more.

Sebastian took my 2 boys from non skiers to confident happy kids comfortable skiing blue runs and using parallel turns and stops in 5 lessons. He was fun, they enjoyed their lessons with him and his communication was great. If returning to Avoriaz would choose to use him again if he was available. Thank you Seb!

Seb took our two kids 7,5, for two 2hr lessons. They were pretty much beginners but can now do the basics and are quite confident in themselves. They are now crusing the greens and managed the button lifts themselves without any help. Seb is a friendly chap and our guys loved him. They've told us they want him next time and have been asking when that'll be. The lessons were fun, enjoyable and useful. It has left them very enthusiastic!

Seb taught my 2 girls 6&8 on there 1st ski holiday. From the first day they were very happy and learnt a lot from there 4 lessons over the week. We had great advice about which parts of the mountain to take them and which parts to avoid. If we come back to the grand massive we’ll definitely be getting back in touch for more lessons with seb.

Sebastien was fab! We had several hours with him and we improved immensely. Sebastiens speaks English fluently so nothing was lost in translation. We felt safe, really improved our confidence with clear and precise instructions. My daughter now has a new found love of skiing and can’t wait to get on the slopes again. I’d highly recommend, whether it be for beginners or advanced as his wealth of knowledge of the mountain range too is second to none. We can’t thank him enough 😄

Excellent. We booked Sebastien for 4 x 2 hour lessons for our cautious 9 year old son, who had lost his way in group lessons. Our son requires that extra encouragement, in a fun yet "non pushy" way to help him advance and he was slightly stuck with a lazy snowplough-esqe technique. We wanted to help him advance to to full on parallel turns and progress to some steeper terrain/going slightly faster to allow the whole resort to be open to him. After the lessons, his confidence is vastly improved, his technique is better and he is generally much happier bombing down blues with a good parallel turns. Sebastien did not lots of trips to the bumps/jumps park, some off piste and some difficult slopes to push him within reasonable bounds. All in all, he had a great time. Sebastien was on time, polite, courteous and provided some extra time by starting the lessons early without extra charge.

Where to start? I have had a few lessons with ski schools in and around Avoriaz. I was a pretty nervous skier. Couldn’t quite get my position right, I wasn’t relaxed, terrified of steeper runs. The first lesson with Sebastien he immediately put me at ease. He understood what I needed to progress. By the end of the first day, Skiing has completely changed for me. My partner could not believe the change. Sebastien made it fun, he listened, he worked WITH me, he taught many lessons that I will continue to use. By day 2 I had made great progress. An icy morning on day 3 shook my confidence a little, skiing out on my own. My lesson with S cane around,

I had one-to-one lessons with Sebastien. I have skied previously but was pretty nervous getting back on the slopes, he is a great teacher who has helped me to regain that confidence and also made it a relaxing, fun experience ! Sebastien was very accommodating to my time restraints (meeting friends for lunch etc) and showed me around the great pistes for my level and was generally good company too. It’s invaluable having someone with local knowledge to show you around whilst teaching! Would definitely book again.

Seb taught me (a very unconfident skier!) and my husband (a very accomplished skier) both separately and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I was very nervous and Seb put me completely at ease and was really patient with me as I regained some confidence. By the end of the week I was really starting to feel like I could ski properly which given how anxious I was when I started is a great testament to Seb's calm and friendly approach. My husband learnt lots of new tips for off-piste skiing and we would both not hesitate to book Seb again when we return. Merci beaucoup et a bientot!

As a family of 4 We booked 3 lessons with Sebastian (6 hours). Sebastian speaks great English, quickly worked out our levels and worked with us individually accordingly. In 3 days he greatly improved each one of us in both skill and confidence. He also made the lessons so much fun for our sons (10 and 12) who were already better skiers than their parents ! I would highly recommend lessons with Sebastian. He would also be a brilliant guide if you are just looking for mountain confidence. Thanks again Sebastian!

Seb is a wonderful, genuine, fun and fabulous ski instructor. He took our family of four (mum, dad, daughter aged 12 and son aged 10) from a mix of lacking confidence, too much confidence and beginner skills to comfortable and capable intermediate skiers who were able to explore and enjoy everything skiing has to offer. If we could give Seb six stars we would. The best instructor we’ve met so far on our skiing journey and someone you will thoroughly enjoy spending time with. Merci beaucoup Seb.

Sortie hors piste en cours individuel , à l’écoute des envies du client et des conditions de neige. J’en ai autant appris sur la technique pure à ski que sur les conditions pour pouvoir pratiquer le ski hors piste en prenant le moins de risque possible. Ambiance cool et décontractée avec un professionnel de la montagne.

Merci à Sébastien pour cette superbe semaine de ski ! Mes deux garçons-de 12 et 15 ans- ont beaucoup apprécié sa bonne humeur et son souci d'allier technique et fun. Ils ont bien progressé sur les skis mais se sont aussi beaucoup amusés. Je recommande sans aucune hésitation Sébastien qui a su mettre en confiance mes garçons et m'a donné une impression de sérieux et de professionnalisme aussi, ce qui est primordial en tant que maman.
