The Billy Poole Memorial Fund was formed in 2008 to  support programs that provide opportunities for  kids to learn to ski.

Pro skier day at Discovery Basin Ski Area

Each year a group of professional skiers travel to Montana to ski  with kids who are new to skiing to inspire them about the sport of skiing.  The program is sponsored by the Billy Poole Memorial Fund in conjunction with the Anaconda PTSA and Discovery Basin Ski Area.
