Chill Youth Development Program

Chill inspires youth to overcome challenges through boardsports: skateboarding, snowboarding and stand-up paddleboard. Chill is more than a learn-to-board program. The program revolves around a six-week curriculum that uses boardsports to teach life skills and increase self-esteem in our participants. We were founded by Jake and Donna Carpenter of Burton Snowboards 25 years ago.

Adventure and Humanitarian Travels - Trekking in Nepal and Other Adventures

Following rewarding careers as teachers and administrators in Vancouver and Richmond,  Patti Lefkos and her husband Barry Hodgins studied journalism and photography then set out to pursue adventure travel. Whether canoeing the Yukon River, backcountry skiing in BC’s Monashee Mountains, hiking in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides or trekking in Tibet and Nepal, they embrace the culture and environment of wilderness areas. When not travelling, they ski in the winter out of their home base at Silver Star Mountain Resort in the Okanagan Valley and paddle in summer from their Ontario island cottage. 

Patti’s articles have appeared in Maclean’s, The Globe and Mail and The San Francisco Chronicle. NEPAL ONE DAY AT A TIME, her Himalayan adventure travel memoir with a humanitarian twistwas published in January 2020.
