I grew up in a multilingual family with British and Austrian citizenship and therefore speak fluent English and German. My hometown is Seefeld in Tyrol, where I started skiing at the age of 3 on my local mountain. In my free time, I still enjoy skiing in Seefeld, one of the best-kept secret spots for freeriding (but remember: “It’s a secret, so don’t tell anyone”).

I have been working in the Austrian ski industry since my early teens and have gained considerable experience in coaching and training many nationalities at all levels in several renowned Austrian ski resorts.

If you ask me what kind of skiing you like best, my answer is: “Steep and challenging freeriding off-piste; the bigger the challenge, the better it gets. The greater the challenge, the better. Get out of your comfort zone and feel the rush. But if you ask me what you enjoy most about skiing, my answer is, “I love meeting new people and teaching them, no matter how good they are at skiing. It’s a real privilege to help people have fun on the mountain.”


Mountain biking, ski touring, traveling to different places (Base Camp Mount Everest, Africa Namibia)

I look forward to meeting you on the slopes and skiing with you!

In the short time that I and my daughter have gotten to know Toby, he continues to show his love for his work, the love and passion he has for skiing and helping others develop .... I feel privileged to have met Toby and I would like to say that I am confident that wherever Toby goes and whatever he does, he will inspire and motivate others.

Toby has already twice spent four weeks helping to run an annual alpine skiing exercise for around 120 British Army soldiers. ... He has added real value to so many different elements of our ski training and race training. We enjoyed his company very much and could benefit from his wealth of experience in various areas of the alpine environment. He is a true professional and is so versatile that he has improved the experience of our entire team on the hill.

I just wanted to say thank you for the great training week in Pitztal. Her coaching was excellent and I accomplished much more than I expected, especially off the slopes! You helped me develop my basic skills so that you could guide me safely through a number of more challenging conditions. I found the video analysis particularly useful and felt that at the end of the week I had a better idea of how to improve my own skiing in the future. The great snow and beautiful hotel were an added bonus!

Great 3 days in Hintertux. Focused on the most important issues, clear in message and delivered with humor! I have the feeling that I have improved significantly. As Arnie said, "I'll be back!"
