Hello Blizzard Alumni!

Sept. 14, 2017, 7:15 p.m.

This is what will be the first of many missives headed your way about the upcoming Blizzard season. If you no longer want to receive any communications from us, simply send me a note at and ask to be removed.

For those of you eager to learn more about the upcoming season, follow along.

The new Blizzard Web Site, unveiled today, is completely different than our original one, now being sunsetted. The content is the same, but the skin is more modern and the interaction is much more high-tech. Hopefully, you will like it. The key to the change was to make it as secure as possible and as easy as possible to navigate.

All of your interaction will be web-based. An email will be the best way to communicate. Most of you know that I am pretty timely with email response. But, you’ll also have a phone number to call. I’d prefer emails as I can answer those while I multi-task, but I know there are times you just want to talk.

Pricing will remain the same as last year. There is tiered pricing for the first member and additional siblings as before. See that I say siblings. That does not include cousins or any family member not part of your immediate family.

For all renewing members, you will have until OCTOBER 15th (at midnight) to sign up for Blizzard to receive a 15% discount (on your one-time annual membership) for early enrollment. The end time of midnight will be controlled by the computer program not me, so no more problems with the mail or hand delivering the application. I will send multiple reminders to you.

Please read all the information before you call me. If you ask me a question which I have already answered on the website, you might be directed to it for your response.

Additional information on location of new additional bus stops still has to be worked out. We know that Barrington is at the Viking Ski Shop in Barrington, and the Skokie stop is at The Shred Shop. Other stops have yet to be finalized. Suggestions are appreciated (so are new members in the new locations.) Our goal is to add all your friends and neighbors. Referrals are welcome.

Last but not least, Supervisors. We need them. From all locations. I’d prefer those of you who can commit to at least 3 trips per season. There are only 3 or 4 people that have committed to every single trip and they are gold to me. I’d gladly welcome more.

Pray for Snow!

Best regards,

Lincoln Park Supervisor

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!
