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 Wednesday and Thursday afternoon/evenings at Bolton Valley Resort. Additionally, we are excited to offer a day on-snow program at Stowe Mountain Resort. on Tuesdays
In addition, Chill Burlington runs a Summer SUP program and a Fall skateboarding program. 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, Patience, Persistence, Courage, 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.
Chill Burlington's skate program is held one day a week for six weeks at Talent Skate Park in South Burlington, VT. The fine folks at Talent, 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.

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!
