About Chill New York City



Chill NYC was established in 1998, three years after Chill’s inception in Burlington, Vermont. Since our first season, Chill NYC has served more than 1,000 youth across New York City. In 2013, Chill NYC launched its inaugural Summer Surf Program. Our goal is to continue to work with more youth across New York City; helping them to build self-esteem and life skills through participation in snowboarding and other boardsports. We believe our program has a transforming effect on how youth view their own potential and the possibilities in their lives.


Located at Mountain Creek, NJ, our on-snow program operates on Tuesday and Wednesday nights with participant pick-up sites in Brooklyn and the Bronx. The entire program is provided at no cost to the youth or agencies involved.



In 2018 Chill NYC will be running both Summer and Fall skateboarding programs. Our Summer program will be based out of Astoria Park Skate Park and is open to youth across the five boroughs.


Our surf host, Skudin Surf, helps us each summer to show a new group of Chill NYC participants the joys of getting out on the water at Rockaway Beach.

In the future, I will learn more about life. Like life, snowboarding is not easy, but the more I learn, the more I live.

Our Host Mountain

Mountain Creek Resort

Chill New York is stoked to partner with Mountain Creek again for the 2018 season!

We use our time on the ride up to Mountain Creek Resort 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.
