About Chill Toronto
Founded in 2003, Chill Toronto provides snowboarding, skateboarding, and stand-up paddleboarding youth development programs for youth between the ages of 10 and 18 years old. Our participants come to our programs through community agencies in the Greater Toronto Area.
Through these programs, we teach important life lessons like Respect, Patience, Persistence, Courage, Responsibility, and Pride.
We work 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 Toronto's six week skateboarding program operates each Fall from October through November at Skate Loft. Approved Agency Partners nominate youth to participate and the entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.
Located at Snow Valley Resort, our six week snowboarding program operates on Wednesday and Thursday nights each winter from mid-January through February. Agency Partners nominate youth to participate and the entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.

Our Host Mountain
Snow Valley Resort
Chill Toronto is stoked to partner with Snow Valley Resort again for the 2017 season!
We use our time on the ride up to Snow Valley Resort in Barrie to introduce the weekly theme through an activity, and reinforce the concept during our time on the mountain. This structure allows participants to make meaningful connections to the curriculum while experiencing the innate joy of snowboarding.
