PARKER SMITH has earned the highest instructor certification but chooses to teach kids, which he’s done at Beaver Creek, Colo., for 11 years. He was selected from more than 300 of his Vail/Beaver Creek peers for the Logan Scholarship to attend the PSIA National Academy in 2003. A role model for new instructors, Parker coaches kids of all ages and backgrounds, anytime, in any weather. His kids have so much fun they hardly realize they’re learning sound technique-and, more importantly, life skills.
