The Billy Poole Memorial
Fund and Big Sky Youth Empowerment
(BYEP) invite the
public to attend their third
annual collaboration at Big
Sky Resort. On February 5
and 6, professional skiers and
snowboarders will join BYEP
groups to shred the slopes at
Big Sky in memory of ski legend
Billy Poole, and in support
of BYEP’s adventure-based
mentoring programs for local,
at-risk youth.
On Friday night at 8 p.m., The
Pour House (a popular bar/restaurant
in Bozeman) is hosting a
fundraising/poster-signing event
for the public in support of the
Billy Poole Memorial Fund.
Athletes will then partner
with BYEP groups to ski and
ride on Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday afternoon,
the pros will assemble at the
base of the resort for a public
poster-signing event.
Participating pros include
rock stars Scot Schmidt, Julian
Carr, Rachael Burks, Jamie
Pierre, and Drew Stoecklein,
as well as local heroes Ryan
Turner, Paul Herberger, Mark
Parent, Travis Anderson, Dan
Armstrong and Jason Schutz.
