Blizzard Season has ended for this year

Wilmot will not look the same when we return next December for the 2016-2017 season of Blizzard. Extensive renovation and improvements will occur over the spring and summer to create an improved winter sports area for us.  Vail Corporation will create a new Wilmot of EPIC proportions (pun intended.)

As we prepare for next year, I want to thank all our Supervisors for their tireless assistance: Bill, Marcia, Christine and Suzanne out of River Forest; Jan from Kenosha; Danielle, Jim, Dan, Bunny and Doug out of Lincoln Park; and surprise appearances by parents and friends who chipped in when we needed assistance. The job of a Chaperone is a volunteer position and we greatly appreciate those who lend their time to the Blizzard Ski and Snowboard School.

A special thanks goes out to Mary and Cal without whom the club could not survive. To Thomas who laboriously helps us make the website happen. To Bill, Lisa, Lydia, and Chuck as the coordinators and instructors of our lessons, and, of course to all the other men and women of Wilmot Mountain who give us a safe place to Ski and Ride.

We will see you next December, but look for an email for membership renewal in September.

Over 55 years of dedication to more enjoyable skiing through competent instruction, and attentive supervision
