Timing and times

One of the challenges of Before Christmas trips is the increase in traffic. I mentioned it in each of my webinars and in previous emails. Besides holiday shopping we have Zoo Lights and holiday parties which add to the volume of traffic which invariably makes us late the first few trips. With new routes and new pick up spots we are running late for most picks. Please be patient. We’ll be in Hyde Park and River Forest shortly.

I wrote this note from my bus last night when I realized that routes were being adversely affected by traffic. Each of our routes turned out to be great routes for location and timing, but traffic impeded our ability to get to our final stops, While no bus was more than 20 minutes late, I'll adjust the timings on the Calendar and Bus Sschedule page of the website.

Steps to Sign Up for 2018-2019 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!
