Bastien Tognotti is the owner of Ski Excel.
Bastien is from Aix en Provence in the South of France.
He has worked in the 3 Valleys since 1997. He also worked at Craigclowan Preparatory School from 2004 until 2009 where he significantly contributed to the outstanding record that Craigclowan enjoyed in prep school racing.
He is a former racer himself and, as a teenager, his training was done in the Southern Alps. Bastien was a member of the Southern Alps race team, racing at the FIS International Level. Having trained with Ensa, he holds the French ski instructor qualification (B.E.E.S 1er degré, option ski alpin) and a full international licence.
Bastien has a passion for off piste instruction, but his natural gift is with children and families. He has the rare gift of capturing and keeping their interest over short or long periods. There are many requests from clients for repeat lessons year on year.
