What makes SkierLab different?
SkierLab is student centered. Our system allows you to personalize your skill development journey, based on your unique challenges and goals.
Armed with an understanding of cause and effect, you’ll pay close attention to subtle cues offered by your body, your equipment and your surroundings in order to give yourself effective feedback on performance.
You’ll become your own ski instructor, but when you can’t figure it out on your own, we’re there to guide you.
Meet the Coaches
Tobin Leopkey is a middle age ski bum who honed his skills on the steep and deep tree lines of Vancouver Island, Canada. He took his first ski instructor certification at 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 Level 4 Course Conductor 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.
Helen Campbell works as the Technical Director For the Mount Washington Snow School and helps coordinate Section 8’s Snowsport Leadership Training program.
Helen started skiing at 4 years of age at Whakapapa in New Zealand, began ski racing at 11 and did her first full season teaching at 15. It turns out skiing is addictive! In 2007 she came over to Canada to teach a season at Mount Washington and she’s been stuck here ever since.
Helen is a CSIA Course Conductor and Level 4 certified instructor. She‘s also working on a Masters Degree in Psychology, which comes in pretty handy whilst trying to convince students to do irrational things like sliding really fast down an icy pitch. Secretly, she also teaches snowboarding and is mom to some ridiculously cute twins.
