The Plight of PSIA

by tommy kirchhoff

How many skiers does it take to screw in a light bulb? 201. One PSIA director to sit in the dark, 199 Professional Ski Instructors of America to kiss his ass, and one rad som’bitch to make all the turns.

But don’t get me wrong. Some of my best friends are PSIA. They’ve probably got PSIA jokes that I haven’t heard yet.

If you’ve spent any time around the industry, you may have heard these alternative definitions of PSIA:

Pretty Skiing – Inadequate Ability (or backward) Assholes In Stretch Pants

But don’t get me wrong—those aren’t mine These are mine:
