About the Guide - Seb Cazorla

Action Outdoors are thrilled to be working alongside mountain professional Seb Cazorla for the design and delivery of the coming expeditions. Seb is not only one of the most incredible skiers we’ve ever had the pleasure of skiing with, his qualifications and experience make him one of the most qualified Ski Instructors and High Mountain Guides in the world. If that wasn’t enough, his passion, professionalism and attitude make him an all-round superstar.

Seb grew up on skis, demonstrating the natural talent and flawless style only the French seem to have. By the tender age of 13 Seb’s talent saw him qualify for the National French Race Team, specialising in Moguls, for which he continued to race until the age of 18. A few years into his racing career Seb qualified as a race coach himself and begun training other aspiring racers. 

After several years of training, aged 18, Seb qualified as a French National Ski Instructor. The French instructor system is widely agreed to be the most challenging and gruelling instructor programme in the world, with a very high benchmark and very low pass rates. Today Seb also trains future ski instructors rising through the ranks, coaching them through this very challenging programme.

As an undoubtedly excellent skier with a passion and flair for back country skiing and ski mountaineering, Seb trained further trained as a High Mountain Guide in 2005. By no means an easy challenge, trainees are required to demonstrate exceptional climbing and mountaineering skills, even just to qualify for the initial stages of the scheme. As a fully qualified as a IFMGA/UIMLA High Mountain Guide, Seb then took up the role of trainer for the guide scheme. The fact Seb is an outstandingly strong skier with world class instructor and coaching qualifications, really sets him aside from a number of the the other High Mountain Guides.

Today Seb uses both his ski instructor and high mountain guide qualifications, teaching and guiding in the mountains across the French Alps, most frequently in the world famous Chamonix valley – the home to Ski Mountaineering. Seb’s very unique mixture of back country skiing and mountaineering skills and qualifications puts him at the very top of his game and makes him a very sought after teacher and guide. He operates a number of very successful off piste guided weeks which encompass both coaching and high mountain guiding, helping even the most experienced skiers sharpen their technique and style whilst exploring the most remote back country spots.

Seb, a husband and father, is driven by his incredible passion for the mountains. He loves to share ‘his paradise’ with clients, giving them an experience they won’t forget. Safety is always his number one priority and he dedicates his life to training and bettering his skills so he can help others become better skiers, push their own boundaries, whilst always staying safe. Having Seb lead the Action Outdoors Adventures is a great honour.
