Our Buses

Blizzard uses only Highway Coach buses. They are spacious and comfortable, and equipped with a lavatory and DVD players. Please do not pull up immediately in front of, or behind the buses as they park, to pickup and dropoff members. For the River Forest parents, please do not park against the School wall, as that is where the buses will park.

Membership Card

Each Blizzard member will receive a plastic membership card and a lanyard on their first trip. You will need to be wearing the card in order to board the bus. Epic Pass members must also have their Epic Pass with them to attend. Epic passholders not in possession of their card at Wilmot will be charged the full Blizzard price for a lift ticket.
