Tobin Leopkey is not a ski celebrity. He’s middle age ski bum who refuses to grow up. Honing his skills on the steep and deep tree lines of Vancouver Island, he took his first ski instructor certification at the age of 16. Now slightly creakier, he’s still passionate about teaching people to slide down snowy hills.
Having taught on 5 continents and many mountains along the way, Tobin is a Course Conductor and Level 4 Instructor with the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance, a former member of the CSIA High Performance Team, the Whistler Blackcomb Demonstration Team, as well as author of ski technique articles for Ski Canada magazine.
Since 2005, Tobin has been owner and head coach of Section 8 Snow Sports, running ski instructor courses, mountain leadership programs and all mountain ski improvement camps around the world.
