Toby Dawson Biography

Toby Dawson won a bronze medal in freestyle skiing at the 2006 Winter Olympics. Find out more about this moguls master right here.

Toby Dawson - From Seoul to Vail

Toby Dawson was born in Seoul, South Korea in 1978, but moved to Vail, Colorado when he was three years old, after being adopted by a pair of Vail ski instructors. Not surprisingly, Toby's parents soon had him bombing around on skis as well and by the age of six, he began alpine ski racing. But Toby preferred jumping off cliffs or flying through moguls instead of racing through gates, so he switched to freestyle skiing when he was 12.

Toby Dawson - Gold Medal Hopeful

Toby's love of big air and his fearlessness has made him a perfect fit for moguls. Since entering the World Cup freestyle moguls tour in 1999, Toby has won several World Cup events, a US Championship and the 2005 dual moguls world title. At the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, Dawson won a bronze medal in moguls. Besides winning several events, Dawson has also invented several freestyle tricks, including the "cork 720" - a 720 that's like a barrel roll, where his body goes parallel to the ground. Don't try this at home.
