updated: Blizzard's Delayed 2020-2021 Season

Sept. 16, 2020, 12:22 p.m.

Blizzard is faced with the same uncertainty that all gatherings are experiencing. We can social distance at the mountain, but we have fewer alternatives on the trip up and the inside gathering at the mountain. Vail has thrown in a couple of quirks that make the whole process a bit more difficult, as well.

****update: Chicago just put Wisconsin back on the travel quarantine list on 22rd September (this lisdt is updated on a weekly basis by the city ****

As soon as we have a better handle on all the nuances of changes, we will be back in touch to let you know. Right now we are operating in the dark relative to all the changes that will need to be made. Rather than misinform anyone, I will wait until we hear back from Wilmot with their policy changes, and from our transportation company and their requirements. The goal is to have everyone stay safe and practice social distancing while having fun. I appreciate everyone filling out the survey that was sent to all of last year's members. That helps us understand your needs and expectations. 62% of the club clicked through on the survey, but less than half actually answered. It is important to hear from you. If you log in to the website using last year's credentials, you can find the survey behind the firewall at the bottom of the "More Info" tab.

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!
