Gemma Deed

My passion for skiing started when I was 4; my parents are enthusiastic skiers. We live in Luxembourg, which meant we had easy access to the Alps and I learnt to speak 4 languages fluently.
I passed my initial qualifications for ski instructing in Tignes when I was 18  before going to University of York to read Chemistry.
There, I joined the Women’s Rugby team to enhance my endurance and strength for skiing.
Becoming strength and conditioning coach for my team reminded me of how much I enjoy to teach and pass on to other people the joy I get out of sport.
I am really looking forward to being able to share my passion for skiing this season in Zermatt!
