A day with Blizzard starts with a ski or snowboard lesson. Lessons are conducted in small groups divided by skill level. On their first day, each member, new and existing, must be classified at a certain skill level, A (beginner) through G (expert). From the beginning of each new season, we reclassify students to ensure they are in the safest level for their current ability.
Our lessons are 60 to 90 minutes long, and are taught by Level 2 or 3 PSIA Certified Instructors. These are the highest levels of instructor certification. The lessons are given on the various slopes of Wilmot Mountain, which offer a variety of terrain for all skill levels. A Terrain Park is also available to adventurous teenagers and students who have reached the “D” level and above.
See more information on The Blizzard Program.
For the rest of the day, members for free time to spend with each other skiing and snowboarding. Wilmot also has a few restaurants and an arcade on premises. Children are not allowed outside of the ski area.
Wilmot’s slopes are monitored by lift operators, the Wilmot Ski Patrol, and Blizzard’s several adult supervisors. There are also supervisors available at all times in the lodge. Blizzard has a designated area (called “The Blizzard Desk”) that is reserved for our members. Our members are recognized by their Blizzard tags which should be on their person at all times. Any interaction with a Blizzard member is immediately reported back to our Supervisors.
Blizzard members ride to and from the ski area in highway coach buses. They are equipped with a lavatory and DVD players.
