Gillian Parker is a BASI Level 3 Internationally qualified ski instructor.

She has been skiing since a child and raced internationally for the British Children’s Team and later for Glasgow University, where she also developed her passion for climbing. Ski mountaineering was the logical progression from there; combining the 2 sports that she loves. Since then Gillian has completed numerous ski tours across the Alps, including an ascent of Mont Blanc, but is equally as passionate about getting out and exploring the Scottish hills on ski from her home in Fort William.

Gillian has also recently enjoyed Ski Mountaineering (Skimo) racing in Scotland, with several positions on podium.
