About Chill Burlington



Chill Burlington was established in 1995 as our very first youth development program. We have grown over the years and currently offer on-snow programming on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon/evenings at Bolton Valley Resort. Additionally, we are excited to offer a day on-snow program at Stowe Mountain Resort. on Tuesdays

In addition, Chill Burlington runs a Summer SUP program and a Fall skateboarding program. Since our inception, the Chill Burlington site has served more than 1,000  youth in the greater Burlington area.

Through these programs, we teach important life lessons like Respect, Patience, Persistence, Courage, Responsibility, and Pride.

Chill works with youth from low-income communities, juvenile justice, mental health, drug treatment, transitional housing, foster care, and after-school programs to overcome challenges they are facing in their everyday lives.


 Our snow program is held at Bolton Valley Resort, after-school two nights per week, and lasts six weeks. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth. This year we have an exciting update, with a day program added at Stowe Mountain Resort!


Chill Burlington's skate program is held one day a week for six weeks at Talent Skate Park in South Burlington, VT. The fine folks at Talent, along with a generous sponsorship from Pro-Tec, provide our youth with everything they need to be safe and feel confident stepping on a board for the first time. 

Stand-Up Paddleboard 

Chill Burlington is heading into its 3rd year of SUP with help from the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center and Wnd & Wvs. Last year was so successful we were able to offer two sessions of SUP, and we can't wait to see what year three brings.

OUR sup partner

Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center

We are proud to work with the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center, to provide programs for our youth throughout the summer. Each day, we meet up at the beautiful waterfront in Burlington, discuss our theme of the day, then join an instructor from the Community Sailing Center for a session out on the water. Each day is filled with lots of patience and teamwork, coupled with falls (into the water of course) and laughs. We would urge you to go check out the Sailing Center, to learn about their mission, and take advantage of their wonderful services!
