Scott Leete Smith
Woodstock Ski Runners/Suicide Six
VARA Development Coach of the Year
Scott Leete Smith is the Head U-16 Coach and the Woodstock Union High School Coach operating out of Suicide 6 in Pomfret, Vermont. Scott had a very long and successful career in ski racing as both an athlete and coach. Scott came up through the Mid Vermont Council racing in the Killington Ski Club and went on to ski at the University of Vermont where he anchored a team of great athletes for his 4 year career during which time UVM regularly finished in the top 3 for NCAA Division I teams nationally. Scott is a committed coach for each one of his athletes regardless of their level of racing, from FIS level to pure High School. He is fair, dedicated, and hardworking. He is always ready to set a race course, or to take on the referee role while still giving his kids his full coaching commitment on race day. In addition to his weekend coaching job, Scott has a full time career outside of skiing but still heads to Suicide 6 at least 3 afternoons per week to support training for his after school athletes. Scott and his wife Kim have also raised two successful Vermont ski racing athletes, Spencer and Alison.
