The Billy Poole Memorial Fund exists to honor the life and memory of big-mountain skier Billy Poole. The charity introduces youth to skiing and outdoor programs. Billy Poole was inspired by skiing and the mountains, but more importantly, Billy served as an inspiration to others by following his passion, staying true to his dreams, and ripping the mountain the way only someone who lives to ski can. The Billy Poole Memorial Fund strives to carry on Billy’s inspiration to others by introducing kids to the natural beauty of the mountains.
