PSIA Names Its Top Ski Instructors

Everything you need to know about skiing, you can learn from these 14 pros.

Every four years, the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) hosts what is known among its members as one of the most grueling tryouts on snow. The mission: To identify the very best ski teachers from around the country who can represent the organization, perform outreach, educate and train budding instructors and push the sport of skiing to new levels. Just receiving an invitation to the tryouts is an enormous honor.

Hundreds packed into Seattle’s Bell Harbor Events Center on April 14 to welcome eight new Hall of Famers, while concurrently celebrating K2’s 50th year of ski-gear innovation.

Congrats to the inductees:

April is a busy time for Lindsey Vonn, what with all the trophy polishing she has to cram into her short off-season schedule. So it's hardly surprising that back in 2010—arguably the biggest and busiest of her career so far, when she won two Olympic medals, three World Cup titles and an ESPY for Best Female Athlete of the Year—she let a little thing like her federal taxes slip between the cracks.
