About Chill New York City:

The Chill NYC site was established in 1998, three years after Chill’s inception in Burlington, Vermont. Since our first season, Chill NYC has served over 1,000 underserved youth across New York City. In 2013, Chill NYC launched our inaugural Summer Surf Program. Our goal is to continue to work with more youth across New York City building in them self-esteem and life skills through participation in snowboarding and other board sports. We believe our program has a transforming effect on how youth view their own potential and the possibilities in their lives.

Snow Program:

  • Location: Mountain Creek Resort, NJ
  • Our on-snow program operates on Tuesday and Wednesday nights with participant pick-up sites in Brooklyn and the Bronx. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.
  • Information for the Winter 2015 season will be available in the Fall of 2014.

Chill NYC is looking forward to our 2016 Winter Snowboard program!
