About Chill Boston

 

 

Chill Boston has big news! We are now a year-round youth development program. Since the Chill Foundation launched the Boston location in 1997, roughly 950 youth have been given the opportunity to unique physical activity and positive guidance to better their current situations. After 19 years of operating a seasonal snowboard program, Chill Boston has demonstrated the need and community support to expand the site to year-round. This expansion involves implementing SUP, surf, and skate programs. The expansion will allow Chill Boston to reach more underserved youth in the Greater Boston Area.

Snow 

In addition to our program at Wachusett Mountain, Chill Boston is also now at  McIntyre Ski Area offering programming in the Merrimack Valley!

Skate 

Thanks to our new mobile skatepark by Freshpark, Chill Boston can now offer programs at community skateparks as well as at schools and youth centers.

SURF

This was Chill Boston's second year partnering with  Levitate Surf Shop to offer a surfing program at DCR's Nantasket Beach. located in Hull. 

Stand-up Paddleboard 

Chill Boston is able to offer our SUP program in Waltham with the help of Charles River Canoe and Kayak!

I’ll always remember how to snowboard, but also I learned to never rush anything, to make and keep friendships, to respect others, and to have courage to stand up to any challenge that comes my way.

Our Host MountainS

Wachusett Mountain & McIntyre Ski Area

Chill Boston is stoked to continue our partnership with Wachusett Mountain Ski Area!

We use our time on the ride up to Wachusett Mountain 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.

Chill Boston also stoked to form a new partnership opportunity with McIntyre Ski Area! 

We're excited to be able to expand our programming into the Merrimack Valley! We'll be bringing youth from Boston and Lawrence to McIntyre Ski Area in Manchester, NH for the first time.
