Treble Cone welcomes new Ski Area General Manager

Treble Cone welcomes new Ski Area General Manager
April 5, 2018

Toby Arnott, one of New Zealand’s most experienced and passionate snow sports professionals is joining Wanaka ski area Treble Cone as Ski Area General Manager.

A seasoned snow sports veteran with over 15 years’ experience in local and international ski areas, Arnott will start in his new role at the end of this month.

The Queenstown born-and-bred local is renowned for his passion for the industry, delivering exceptional customer experiences and operational excellence.

Having travelled the world as an international athlete he then started from the ‘ground up’ as a ski instructor in Queenstown before working to deliver elite level on-mountain events.

In his current role as General Manager of Snowsports at NZSki, he has been responsible for the strategic direction and overall operation of snow sports schools and management of over 400 staff.

Looking forward to his new role, Arnott says he is “thrilled” to join the Treble Cone team as it celebrates its 50th winter season.

He advises “I’m excited about working with the Treble Cone Board to bring a fresh approach to an already vibrant business.

“It’s a natural progression to my career and probably comes with mixed emotions, having grown up in Queenstown and skied here all my life, but I’m looking forward to a change of scenery.”

Arnott is renowned for bringing the highest levels of leadership and organisational goals to the snow sports industry.

He adds “I’m proud to have helped developed superb levels of staff loyalty and retention.

“Treble Cone has some first-class people working on the mountain and it’s vital to work with a team that recognises the importance of providing exceptional customer experiences from the moment a guest arrives, through to their departure.”

Over the years, Arnott has held numerous positions in the ski industry including as Chairman of the Snowsports New Zealand Alpine Sports Committee, has been heavily involved with development of young up and coming skiers and event management of the New Zealand Universities Winter Games.

Treble Cone Chairman Don Fletcher says Toby brings a unique skill-set and in-depth understanding of how alpine resorts and their individual departments operate to his new role as Ski Area General Manager.

When he’s not on-mountain enjoying the white stuff with his family, Toby spends his time mountain biking, road cycling and kayaking.
