Our history

The 360 Ski School started in Les Gets, part of the Portes du Soleil ski area, in 1997. A group of like-minded friends with a passion for the mountains wanted to create something completely new and different. We are now present in the two most beautiful ski areas in the Northern Alps.  Since 2005 the 360 Samoens Ski School  has been operating, part of the Grand Massif ski area.

The 360 Ski Schools both share these main objectives :
  • A human and realistic approach ..we’re not a factory !!!
  • Respecting personnal developments for everyone.
  • Above all having a fun and an enjoyable experience
  • To share our passion and experiences of the mountains.
  • Allowing our customers to progress and feel at ease in  this environment

With experience in France as well as many other countries our instructors are trained and certified by the National School of Skiing and Mountaineering in Chamonix. Highly knowledgeable of their ski areas our instructors speak both French and English along with some that speak Dutch, Italian and Spanish.

360’s advantages:
  • A warm and friendly welcome
  • Group lessons limited to 8-9 children/adults even in high season
  • Our mini skiers of 4 yrs old on real slopes!
  • Medals and Vin Chaud (Samoens)included at the end of the week
  • Priority on the lifts
  • Times of lessons adapted to avoid lots of waiting in queues so more time on the slopes.
