ABOUT CHILL: Chill is in its 13th year as a nonprofit learn-to-snowboard program for at-risk inner-city kids. Each winter, in 14 different cities across North America, Chill takes 170 kids to the slopes once a week for six weeks and provides them with everything they need to learn to ride: lift tickets, lessons, transportation, and head-to-toe gear. Chill uses the vehicle of snowboarding to help kids accomplish goals they never thought they could, while teaching them some of the most important lessons of life— patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, integrity, and pride—all through positive adult role models who treat the kids with respect and encouragement.
