About Chill Burlington
Chill Burlington was established in 1995 as our very first youth development program. We have grown over the years and currently offers on-snow programming on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon/evenings at Bolton Valley Resort. New for 2017, we are excited to offer a day on-snow program at Stowe Mountain Resort. on Tuesdays.
Additionally, 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.
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.
