Each year we host a large group of Pro skiers from around the globe who come to Montana to ski with disadvantaged kids in our community. They inspire these kids to develop a love for the outdoors and the mountains. They help the kids learn sport of skiing and snowboarding. The Pros travel at their own expense and donate their time for this event. Your donation helps to pay all of the costs of taking the kids skiing. We provide transportation to the mountain, ski rentals, lift tickets and a hot lunches Funds also cover the cost of lodging accommodations and food for the Pros during their stay in the community.

Kids range in ages grade 3-8. We have a Jr. Mentor program for kids who are in grades 9-12. These kids learn to giveback by donating their time to ski with the younger kids. We also have Adult Mentors who help to coordinate the kids. Each group of kids that ski together have at least 1 Adult Mentor, 1 Jr. Mentor and several Pros. The Pros ski with the same group of kids all day.
