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.

SNOW 

 Our snow program is held at Bolton Valley Resort, after-school two nights per week, and lasts six weeks. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth. This year we have an exciting update, with a day program added at Stowe Mountain Resort!

SKATE 

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. 

Stand-Up Paddleboard 

Chill Burlington is heading into its 3rd year of SUP with help from the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center and Wnd & Wvs. Last year was so successful we were able to offer two sessions of SUP, and we can't wait to see what year three brings.

Summer sup programs are in full swing!

We’re stoked to be back on the water with our friends from the Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center for another year of stand-up paddleboarding. This summer we’re running to Discover programs on the Burlington waterfront with agency partners from around Chittenden County.

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!

However, intermittent professional and volunteer experience working with youth inspired her to return to school to pursue a B.A. in Leadership for Service and Change 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.
