Update to the Webinar Schedule and Epic Pass Program

Nov. 7, 2018, 11:29 p.m.

Check out the List of Webinars in our recent email. Remember, there is no conference call on Tuesday November 13th as previously listed. And while you are at it, make a placeholder for November 18th as the last day to buy an Epic Pass. Buy Epic Passes Here!  At this point, the Epic Local Pass may be justified if your family is planning to go to another Vail property for a vacation during a non-holiday week (unless the property is an unrestricted resort.)  There has been some confusion that EVERYONE needs an Epic Pass. It is economical if: You plan to go out west for a few days, or you plan to be at Blizzard for more than 10 sessions.  If you are buying for a member older than 12, you might have a bit of math to do to see if it is worth the expense as those passes are more expensive now. We rebate $30 from our trip fee if you have an Epic Pass. For the under 12 set, the math works out to 11 Blizzard trips. Otherwise, there is no need to buy an Epic Pass. Our weekly Trip Fee ($85) includes a lift ticket, Lesson and the bus ride. With an Epic Pass it is $55.  Please do NOT buy the 4 or 7 Day passes, as I cannot keep track of them.

Starting this Sunday (November 4th), I plan to do a few webinars (2 per week during November) on just what is Blizzard and how we operate. It will be a live presentation with audio and visuals using  I'll send out the webinar details shortly to my current mailing list. If you would like to be added, drop me a note at

If you are renting from Viking for the Season, make certain to do so by mid November when Viking's $40 off Blizzard discount expires. Makes certain to say you're with Blizzard, get the discount and the stickers to label your equipment - even your poles.

While you are labeling things, I highly recommend the following labels for clothing. They stay put on everything, including goggles. MabelsLabels

See you soon!

Steps to Sign Up for 2018-2019 Season

  1. Login or Sign Up: if you have a login from previous years, it should work on the new site.
  2. Update your user profile, making sure contact details and other information are current.
  3. Update or add family members as Blizzard students. Note that all Membership Fees, Trip Reservations, and equipment rentals made from Wilmot are purchased for a student on record in the system, so you need to fill this information first before paying membership fees.
  4. Confirm your medical insurance and waiver information. You will not be able to go on to pay membership fees without digitally signing the waiver. Entering your full name in the waiver form constitutes your digital signature.
  5. Pay membership fees for all members that will be participating this year. As in previous years, we are using PayPal for payment processing. You don't have to have a PayPal account in order to pay through their service, although signing up for one can make the checkout process faster and easier.

As always, if there any questions, please contact us. Enjoy the season!
