Ski Snow Valley

Snow Valley Recognized for Dedication

We were honoured to be recognized by the Chill Foundation and Burton Snowboards at last weeks NSAA National Convention in Georgia for our outstanding support of the Chill Program.

Chill's core youth development program revolves around a six-week curriculum that uses snowboarding to teach life skills and increase self-esteem in participants, at-risk and underserved youth between the ages of 10-18. Our six weekly themes; patience, persistence, responsibility, courage, respect, and pride, provide a framework for learning and personal growth. We use our time on the ride up to the mountain 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.
