Jamie Deamer

- Meribel

tdc coach jamie-deamer

Jamie's passion for winter sports started at an early age playing ice hockey for his home town team Chelmsford at every level from juniors through to the first team who played their matches in English league division one.

It wasn't until he was 13 that he first put skis on and he quickly caught the bug. He was a regular visitor to the Alps whilst working as a printer around London in the 1990's.

A career change was needed to further his passion and in 2001 he set off on a ski trip that saw him work his way around the world via Canada and New Zealand ending up in the Aosta valley in Italy where he met his wife Lucy.

Fast forward a few years and Jamie is now a BASI level 4 with full french equivalence. He spends the majority of the year living in the alps with his wife and daughter. He keeps himself busy with golf, riding his bike and planning for the upcoming winter with TDC 3 Valleys TDC Meribel.
