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 

Chill Boston of fortunate to have TWO snow partners! In addition to Wachusett Mountain, we're also working with McIntyre Ski Area to offer programming in the Merrimack Valley region!

Skate 

We're excited to offer to skate programs this summer... one at Hedgehog Skatepark in Salem, and a 3-day Discovery Skate at Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy in Dorchester using our new Freshpark setup!

SURF

This will be our second summer partnering with  Levitate Surf Shop to offer a 6-day surf program down at the ocean in Hull! Can't wait to catch some waves with the youth!

Stand-up Paddleboard 

This year's SUP program will be held in Waltham again with the help of Charles River Canoe and Kayak! We're excited to get out there and tour that 'Dirty Water' !

 
 

The Latest from Chill Boston

 

 

CHILL BRINGS FRESHPARKS TO BOSTON

We're stoked to be able to offer a new feature for our summer skate this year... a Freshparks mobile skatepark setup! This is an awesome opportunity for our youth partnership agencies, as it avoids the hassle of transporting youth to and from the skatepark. We'll be giving this new gear a go at our Girls Discover Skate in Dorchester next week - stay tuned for pics!

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.
