The Season has Come and Gone

March 16, 2020, 10:18 p.m.

Thankfully we had the last of our season trips prior to the isolation and social distancing that is now a part of our daily routine. Hopefully, we are well, and will contiue to stay that way.

There are still a couple of outstanding issues relative to Blizzard.

1.  Retunring rental equipment to Viking. On Sunday I brought another load of poles to Viking, including some that had names on them. They were all found in the rental bins at Wilmot. Viking will continue to make available these poles to those of you who either have no poles or only one to return. This is so you can avoid any extra charges.  I also have one pair of Goode black poles that appear to be personal, not rental poles.

2.  The Lost & Found is pretty extensive. In instances where I know the owner, or you can identify items you are missing, I will deliver them to you. I may wait a bit until the Coronavirus hoopla dies down as I fall in the high risk group, but if there are any immediate needs, please let me know at and I'll arrange to get them to you, or you can pick them up from me.

3.  I'd still like to resolve the purchased pants issue from the trip on January 4th. We purchased ski pants for a skier on January 4th who had forgotten her pants. I'd like to get reimbursed.

Stay Well and Healthy and we will see you all next Fall at our two in-person Blizzard Sign up events.

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!
