When asked about his pursuit of a career as a professional skier, Billy Poole had this to say:
It’s more for hanging out with your bros. To me that is the money and that’s the lifestyle. As cliche as it sounds, that’s what pro skiing is all about. It’s not about collecting big checks and big parties. … it’s about hanging out with other skiers who love it as much as you do and other filmers and photographers that just want to be out in the snow and in the mountains with you. -Billy Poole
This sense of community is what we want to share with young Montana kids. Our programs are built and run by people giving back through volunteering. Our volunteers are provided equipment rental and lift ticket if needed.
Our volunteer adult mentors spend a day on the ski hill with at-risk or disadvantaged youth and share their passion for being outside. The goal is to provide alternative tools for dealing with issues that life presents. It is an incredibly rewarding and changes all who are involved.
Our volunteer junior mentors are under the age of 18 and are paired up to assist an Adult Mentor while spending a day on the ski hill with at-risk or disadvantaged youth and share their passion for being outside. It is an incredibly rewarding and changes all who are involved.
Non-skiing volunteers are also a big part of the program. We need folks to help coordinating fundraising events such as soliciting silent auction items, collecting bids, taking movie tickets, etc.
On Ski with the Pros weekend (Superbowl), We also need help with coordinating the kids on the ski day , including bus chaperons, registration, gearing up, lining up, lunch, tired kids etc.
