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.

SNOW 

 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 or agencies involved. This year we have an exciting update, with a second day program added at Stowe Mountain Resort!

SKATE 

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.

Chill partners with STOWE mountain resort!

We are excited to partner with Stowe Mountain Resort  as one of our host mountains for the first time this winter. Starting in January, Stowe will offer our participants instruction on the mountain during a six-week day program. We couldn't be more happy to be working with Stowe and providing our youth with this amazing opportunity. 

SPA NIGHT TO BENEFIT CHILL

On Wednesday, November 16th, an awesome group from the local community came out to the  O'Brien's Aveda Institute on Cornerstone Drive in Williston, Vermont for a night filled with great food, beverages, raffle prizes, spa services, and more. Thanks to all of our attendees, sponsors, and donors, we were able to raise almost $6,000 for our Burlington youth development programs!

Chill gives our kids opportunities to participate in sports they may not be able to do on their own, and reinforces great life skills like respect and not giving up. It’s also just really fun!
