Our Chill Burlington site was established in 1997 as our very first youth-development program. Chill Burlington has grown over the years to include three nights of on-snow programming as well as a freestyle mentoring program and a skateboarding program offered during snowboarding’s off-season. Since our inception, the Chill Burlington site has served over 1,000 at-risk and underserved youth in the greater Burlington area.

Snow Program:

  • Location: Bolton Valley Resort, VT
  • Our on-snow program runs after-school three nights per week and lasts six weeks. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.
  • Program participants meet in Burlington, VT and ride as a group to and from the mountain each night.
  • Contact the Local Manager for more information 

Chill Freestyle:

Skateboard Program:

  • Location: Talent Skatepark, VT
