Deb Trand grew up in the small town of Deep River, Ontario with a population similar to Fernie, BC and with many similar recreational opportunities that she keenly participated in. Her summers were spent sailing, playing tennis and cooling off in the river. In the winters she spent her time skating on the river, competitive swimming at the pool and ski racing every weekend with travel to many of the valley's ski hills. This experience helped her compete at the World Telemark ski championships in Whistler in later years. After travelling and working around the world for 4 years with her fiance (at the time), visiting such countries as England, Scotland, France, Nepal, Thialand, Singapore, Indonsia, Australia and New Zealand they were drawn to the mountains and set themselves up in Calgary, Alberta. However, it was after spending four winters of weekend driving to Fernie for those "powder days" at the ski resort and then only one visit during the summer to see how spectacular the recreation and community was in Fernie, that they picked up all their belongings and have made Fernie their home for the past 17 years. Now with 2 young children, Deb Trand is involved in child community activities and is continually amazed at how fabulous this community is.
Deb Trand is a passionate alpine, cross country and back country skier in the winter and mountain biker and trail runner in the summer. She also enjoys white water paddling, camping and swimming with family.
