NEW Important Announcement about 2020-2021 Season

Oct. 24, 2020, 12:39 a.m.

We ARE going to have a season!  It may not be the season we envisioned, but we will be on the slopes offering ski and snowboard lessons in a Covid-responsible environment.

That said, we have to share the dates at Wilmot with all the other clubs as we cannot attend on the same dates based on attendance restrictions placed by Vail. Anyone want to join us on a Sunday? For years I have been asked to hold trips on Sunday. Now that is an option and a likelihood. Most likely 6 Saturday trips and 4 Sunday trips.

Vail/Wilmot has dramatically increased our rates as they have scaled back their operations to accommodate Covid-19. Extra precautions with attendee limitations and functional changes means extra costs. Bus rates have also increased as we decrease the safe number of passengers.

We will also have to abide by their limitation of our club attendee count each trip. A reservation will be hard and fast and not as flexible as in past years. As soon as we get the website changed over to another season, we will begin sign up. We will have to change the liability statement as you can all imagine, so please read it before you sign your child(ren) up. 

Stay Tuned!

Steps to Sign Up for 2019-2020 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!
