About Chill Seattle



As Chill’s first program outside of Vermont (est. 1999), Chill Seattle has a rich history of volunteer and agency involvement.  In 2012, Chill Seattle hosted its first ShredFest fundraiser, continuing the tradition again in 2013, 2014, and 2016.

Through snowboarding, skateboarding, and stand-up paddleboarding, Chill Seattle teaches important life lessons like Respect, Patience, Persistence, Courage, Responsibility, and Pride.

We work 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.


Located at Stevens Pass, our Chill Seattle program brings gear, instruction, and epic turns to our participants. Getting out of the city and into the mountains is a completely new and eye-opening experience for Chill youth. 



Chill Seattle’s Skate program takes place at All Together Skate, downstairs from evo’s Fremont store. This is one of Chill’s longest standing skate programs and has been a gateway for many youth to fall in love with a sport that can be done, well, anywhere.

Stand-Up PaddleBoard

Chill Seattle SUP took off in the summer of 2016, exploring Seattle’s waterways has opened up a whole new world to Chill Seattle youth, not to mention a whole new meaning to the word “balance”.

Chill seattle's summer sup program

Chill Seattle is gearing up for our summer SUP program! Chill participants will be on the water throughout the month of August learning to SUP and spending some time cleaning up the waterways near Gas Works Parks.

I would wait week after week for Chill to come just so I could leave all technology, all school, and all problems behind and let myself be free with the mountains. Not only did this 100% increase my confidence with everyday life and school but made me feel like I could do anything when I was on the mountain.

Our Host Mountain

Stevens Pass

That’s a wrap on Winter 2018/19!

We use our time on the ride up to Stevens Pass 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.
