Our ambassadors

Freeride skiing

Sébastien Varlet

Sébastien started skiing at the age of 5 in Bellevaux, a neighbouring resort in the Alpes du Léman region. Little by little, his training and competitions helped him build character and develop unfailing determination as well as an unlimited passion for skiing.

From the age of 15 years he followed a sports-study programme (skiing option) at Lycée de Moutier. 2 years later, having won recognition in a few FIS downhill skiing competitions, he decided to go into instructing. He became a ski instructor with the French ski school, ESF, when he was 17 years old.

At Portes du Soleil he discovered a much bigger ski area with many more mountain faces, valleys and corridors to explore!

In 2013, after passing his BTS exams (vocational diploma) and obtaining his national ski-instructor certificate, he decided to travel. He was 22 at the time. And so he travelled the word, stopping for a season in New Zealand where he taught others to ski. There, the mountains became his stimulus… and he began seeking out the best freeriding faces!

Now participating in 3- and 4-star Freeride World Qualifier events in Europe, his aim is to join the best international freeride skiers on the Freeride World Tour 5-star series.

Sébastien Varlet has been one of our resort’s ambassadors since he signed a contract with the Tourist Office in 2016.

Archery

Bérangère Rogazy

Bérangère became an ambassador to the resort of Les Gets, her true heartland, in 2019 through a partnership with the local council.

She discovered the sport, which was to become her passion, in 2005 at Sallanches archery club. In 2007, she took part in her first French championship. Ever since, she has participated nearly every year in 2 different disciplines: indoor archery (18 metres) and outdoor Olympic archery (adult distance 70 metres).

Now a member of Brignais archery club, she ultimately aims to win a team medal at the French Club championship. Since 2016 she has participated in French team selection events and was selected for the 2018 Mediterranean Games in Tarragona.

At the age of 27, Bérangère juggles her time between the hospital, where she works as a medical electroradiology technician, and her physical and mental training which includes plenty of outdoor practice. Unfortunately, she will not be fulfilling her Olympic dream in Tokyo in 2020. But she remains every bit as motivated for her Paris 2024 goal.

To optimise her preparation, Bérangère will continue taking part in French team selections and aims to compete in major events like the World Cup and the European and World championships. She also hopes to rub shoulders with the very best archers in certain heats of the prestigious Indoor World Series competition (18-metre indoor) which should move her up in the rankings.

Handiskiing

Jules Segers

At the age of just 17, Jules Segers is a rising star in parasport downhill skiing. He was born in Les Gets where he took to the slopes at the age of 3 years before joining the Ecole du Ski Français (French Ski School) in Les Gets. Having grown up in a family of sports enthusiasts, the competitive spirit is second nature to him, along with a thirst for surpassing himself.

He has a real passion for downhill skiing, and winter sports in general. “Downhill skiing is a rich and varied sport that covers an incredible terrain. On the slopes, off-piste, or on a slalom run, every single turn is different”, the young skier says. 

After obtaining encouraging results in the French Cup, he joined the French parasport ski team in 2017.

Alongside his skiing, Jules is studying for a science baccalaureate and aims to start at the University Institute of Technology (IUT) in Annecy-le-Vieux in 2020. 


Season after season, Jules sets himself targets which, he hopes, will pave his way to the highest level.

After an excellent 2018-2019 season, Jules was able to represent Les Gets and France in various national and international competitions (European and World cups) in 2019-2020.
