About Chill Burlington

 

 

Chill Burlington was established in 1995 as our very first youth development program. We have grown over the years and currently offer on-snow programming on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon/evenings at Bolton Valley Resort, as well as a daytime on-snow program at Stowe Mountain Resort on Thursdays.

In addition, Chill Burlington runs a Summer SUP program and Spring and Fall skateboarding programs. Since our inception, the Chill Burlington site has served more than 1,000  youth in the greater Burlington area.

Through these programs, we teach important life lessons like Respect, Courage, Patience, Persistence, Responsibility, and Pride.

Chill works 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.

SNOW 

Our Core Snow programs are held at Bolton Valley Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort. Our two sessions at Bolton run after-school one night per week for six weeks, while the Stowe program runs during the day, one day per week. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth. We’re also excited to offer an Explore program at Sugarbush Resort!

SKATE 

Chill Burlington's Core Skate programs are held one day a week for six weeks at Maple Street Park, in Essex Junction, VT. We’re also looking forward to the re-opening of Talent Skate Park! Our host partners,along with a generous sponsorship from Pro-Tec, provide our youth with everything they need to be safe and feel confident stepping on a board for the first time. 

Stand-Up Paddleboard 

We currently hold two sessions of Discover SUP each summer, each meeting once a week for three weeks. Chill youth love the chance to get out on the water, and with help from our friends at the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center and Wnd & Wvs, we’re able to do just that while learning new skills.

The temps maybe falling but our stoke couldn’t be higher! We’re gearing up for winter and can’t wait to get back out to Bolton Valley Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort with the Chillest crew around. Winter is coming, and we’ll be ready with three sessions of Core Snow!

Chill gives our kids opportunities to participate in sports they may not be able to do on their own, and reinforces great life skills like respect and not giving up. It’s also just really fun!

OUR sKATE partner

Thank You Talent Skatepark and Shop!

Our long-time Burlington skate partner, Talent Skatepark, has closed their doors. Talent was our first skate program partner, and continued that relationship with our last Burlington program there just two weeks ago. We know Hannah and David will tackle their next project with the same amazing spirit and drive they gave to Talent, and will continue to support the youth in their community wherever their path leads. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you've done for Chill over the years, we can't wait to see what you do next!

Bailey Monty (she/her) | Burlington Program Coordinator | baileym@chill.org

Bailey is originally from Milton, VT, and now resides right here in Burlington. She holds an A.S. in Computer Animation, which lead to a career in television animation in Los Angeles. However, intermittent professional and volunteer experience working with youth and a life-long love of boardsports inspired her to return to school to pursue a B.A. in Human Services Administration from Antioch University. Her favorite boardsport is snowboarding, specifically at Smuggler's Notch and Stowe, VT. Her first CD was Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill.
