About:

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:

  • Location: Sugarbush Resort, VT
  • Chill Freestyle is a one-on-one mentoring program aimed towards youth with an interest in building freestyle snowboarding skills. Youth and mentors spend one day per week on the slopes and ride for six weeks total. The program offers mentoring time as well as freestyle coaching, all provided at no cost to the youth involved. 

Skateboard Program:

  • Location: Talent Skatepark, VT
  • Our skateboard program runs one day per week for six weeks. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.
