What are others saying about Torben

A Legendary Region

St Anton – The cradle of alpine skiing. A legendary region that has enjoyed cult status for as long as skiing has been a winter passion.
Once visited never forgotten. St Anton has it all. The skiing, the town, the après ski. Why do we come here? For the off-piste. It’s one of our favourite off-piste skiing destinations in the world. Mattun, Schindler Kar, Valuga, Hinteres Rendl, Malfontal, Maroi, Stierloch to name a few of the outstanding routes. It’s St Anton where we have enjoyed some of the deepest powder we have ever skied.

Just one ingredient to add and you probably have the number one destination for off-piste skiing in Europe if not the world. Torben Gregerson. Local guide / instructor / St Anton Off Piste Guru.
Priority number 1, safety. Priority number 2, powder. Torben knows it all. The aspects, the slopes, the conditions. Don’t waist time. Money well spent? You bet, 20 weeks of powder and still counting.

This is a man who places safety firmly at the top of the list. He can sniff out danger like a bloodhound. “Not there, too much wind overnight. There, too much sun. Head high above 2,500m. Keep to the east faces, less then 25degrees. Keep distance between group members.
By tomorrow the snow would have settled, danger reduced we can ski the steep”. These sort of instructions flow out of Torben every morning before we start. His knowledge of the off piste has been invaluable to myself and my team of instructors. St Anton without Torben? Torvill without Dean.
