Our First Trip is Behind Us (UPDATE)

Dec. 11, 2017, 2:03 p.m.

Each new season of Blizzard brings a fresh, healthy perspective on the reality of hosting a club of this size; it is not without its challenges. For our first week, there was a lot of excitement, new friends created, new adventures, and the tedium of finding your place in the group. It was a bit brisk on the hill, but the snow cover was good on the open terrain and the crowd was fairly light. 

We are looking forward to our second and last trip of 2017 on December 16th. Sign up early in the week to ensure you don't get left off the list! Membership tags will be handed out on your first trip.

I highly recommend reading the website pages to learn more about the club - especially the drop down pages of the "More Info" link. You must be a member to sign up for the weekly trips. Once you become a member ("Signup/Login" tab) the "Weekly Trip" tab will be your next stop each week of our season. Remember to sign up before Thursday at 5 PM so you can avoid a late reservation fee.

*** Website had a few hiccups this afternoon (12/13). All sign ups should now be OK ***

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!
