The team


A message from the manager

The ski school was created in 1998 in Châtel, in the world’s largest ski resort, "Les Portes du Soleil", at the foot of the Linga cable car. It was handed down from father to son. Sébastien, a former member of the French skiing team, third at the 1996 World’s Junior mogul skiing championship, took over in 2007.

“I manage this school in a family spirit, so everybody, whatever the level and the age, can accomplish their wishes in a friendly and joyful environment. I work with an experienced and dynamic team composed of graduated instructors. We teach in a personalised and funny way in order to let you enjoy the pleasure of gliding in a trustworthy and safe environment. Whether you are a beginner or experienced skier, child or adult, and whatever sport you like (ski, snowboard, telemark, etc.), our team are at your service.

We will welcome you in an entirely private structure, equipped with snow canons, where children from the age of 3 will be able to enjoy their first glide thanks to adapted packages (individual lesson, "picnic" à la carte, etc.). As from the age of 4, your children will be welcomed in our kiddie garden, the “Jardin des Pitchounes”. They will make progress at their own pace, in a funny way. You can entrust your children to us all day long while you discover the Châtel ski resort “Les Portes du Soleil” or you learn skiing with one of our instructors.

Lovers of extreme thrills will be able to try freeride, freestyle, moguls, rider in snow park or discover new modern techniques such as carving.

Thank you for visiting our website. I am looking forward to welcoming you at the foot of the Linga trails, where my team and I will take care of you according to your individual needs.” 

Sébastien GRILLET-PAYSAN, Châtel Sensations Ski School's Manager
