What a Blast!

The snow was awesome on Saturday. I'm surprised we didn't have more kids come out and join us, although I know that the flu has made the rounds in the schools, thus limiting our attendance. It was as crowded as I have seen Wilmot in years. The 80th Anniversary celebration and the the conditions meant that everyone came up to take advantage of the snow. Next weekend should still be good and the weekend after promises to be even better. 

But what you all really want to know about is the trip to Granite Peak. That will happen on the weekend of March 16-18th. We are just finalizing the details and the webpage for sign up should be up shortly. The cost will be $350 for the weekend. The fee includes the lift tickets, lodging, and bus fee. Lunch and Dinner will be extra. The buses will leave from both Lincoln Park and River Forest at around 4:30 PM on Friday and return Sunday evening around 8 PM. This is a lightly supervised trip desigend for those in 5th grade and older. I'de prefer to have only level C and higher although I'll also want to see the level C skiers and boarders before they join us. I'll post an informational sheet in the next 24 hours.

Steps to Sign Up for 2017-2018 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!
