At 33, Tell A Friend Tour founder Andy Parry can hardly be considered a kid. But he knows how to connect with youngsters in terrain parks throughout New England, and from coast to coast, which makes him something of a Pied Piper to the next generation of tricksters.
“The Tell A Friend Tour was created out of a need,” said Parry, who helped launch the Line Traveling Circus in 2008. “Skiing at one point had no demo-style tours, no events that were just about having fun and progressing your skiing with a group of like-minded people.
“If I wasn’t going to do it, no one would,” he said.
Parry, a Buffalo native who now calls Portland, Ore., home, and Timberline his home mountain, spends a considerable amount of his time with the Tell A Friend Tour, which annually kicks off right after New Year’s Day and includes a number of New England dates in January. The cross-America tour, he said, is the perfect vehicle to give back to the sport.
