About:

Our Chill Burlington site was established in 1997 as our very first youth development program. Chill Burlington has grown over the years and currently offers on-snow programming Thursday and Friday afternoon/evenings at Bolton Valley Resort. New for 2015, a Sunday afternoon program at Jay Peak Resort, and a freestyle mentoring program at Sugarbush Resort.  Additionally, a skateboarding program is 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 (Thursday & Friday evenings); Jay Peak Resort, VT (Sundays)  *Starts January 15, 2015*
  • Our on-snow program runs after-school two nights per week, Sunday afternoons and lasts six weeks. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.
  • Program participants meet in Burlington, VT (with exception of Jay Peak where we meet at the resort,) and ride as a group to and from the mountain each night.
