SAM Magazine-Lakewood, Colo., June 28, 2006-Mark Dorsey is the new executive director of the Professional Ski Instructors of American (PSIA) and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI), according to The American Snowsports Education Association (ASEA). Dorsey, previously the assistant executive director, replaces Stephen Over, who is retiring after 16 years with the associations.
