Instructor: Dee O'Neill
Dee has worked with us in Chamonix Valley for many years now and has made it her playground winter and Summer.
I was introduced to skiing at a relatively early age and spent winters zipping around the slopes. I quickly became addicted to skiing and being from Ireland did prove a slight problem – no snow! In order to ski regularly I joined the Ski Club of Ireland where I was able to ski on more regular basis. Getting involved at an early age introduced me to racing and this proved a useful stepping stone in training towards becoming a ski instructor. After receiving my first level qualification I realised that I wanted to develop more as a skier so I furthered my training which lead me to gain my professional qualification and enable me to live in the Alps as a professional ski instructor.I was also heavily involved for a number of years with the Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors as Chairperson which is the Irish body responsible for training and assessing ski instructors to international standards. I am still involved nowbut as an IASI Level 1 Trainer. With such a passion for skiing, cycling and running I couldn’t think of a better place to be then Chamonix!
