Chill Alumni


Alumni Outreach



Chill was founded in Burlington, Vermont, in 1995, and has since worked with more than 21,000 youth across North America and beyond. We're forming a network of current and former participants to continue the stoke, keep in touch, and make sure everyone can take advantage of all the opportunities provided as a #ChillAlum.

“I will never forget my Chill experience as a participant. I would have never dreamed of snowboarding because it was too expensive for us, we had no way to get out to the mountains, and it is just something we were not exposed to in our neighborhood.”

As Chill enters its 24th year of programming, we've grown our network of alumni to more than 25,000 people throughout North America. While cleaning out some archives, we found lots of old photos from the last twenty years, and have begun sharing them on social media with the hashtags #ChillAlumni and #StillChill. What we discovered was a vast network of past participants wanting to share with everyone at Chill the impact the program had on them. We've decided to make a place where past participants can connect with Chill and each other, and we need your help to keep it growing.

opportunities for alumni

"I wanted to go back for a second year to be a peer leader and I had to keep my grades in order to do that, so I did. It was the best feeling in the world at the time to be able to get back out there and help teach kids how cool this sport was and how fun it is.”

As we grow our alumni network we're also working on expanding the opportunities for personal and professional growth. From city meet-ups to special considerations when seeking employment with Burton Snowboards, we hope to continue positively influencing the lives of everyone involved with Chill.
