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.
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.
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.

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.
