My night with Chill Snowboarding was very fun because I learned how to go down the hill backwards and to do 360s. Next week I want to learn how to go faster, do S turns with control and race with my friends. I feel that snowboarding should be a part of my regular life. I fell of the ski lift but it was so fun, until I dropped my glove. Funnest winter sport ever! – Ethan, Grade 7 Youth from Boys & Girls Club of East Scarborough
Here is a picture of Ethan at the beginning of the night before he started lessons.
Here are some more photos of the 6 Chill participants having a blast at Snow Valley Ski Hill. They continued to receive lessons from Snow Valley staff and Chill volunteers. Snowboarding takes time to learn and the learning process involves a lot of falling and snow covered gear. This week the youth showed amazing resilience, never giving up when things got tough and continuing to try what the instructors taught them. Everyone is looking forward to next week and to learning fun new tricks.
