The Season has Come and Gone

April 1, 2022, 4:03 p.m.

Our brief season - a mere 12 weeks of trips - has faded along with the month of March. While we had a few challenges with the increased size of the club, there was nothing outside those that we have experienced before. We are still getting used to Alpine being our new home and abandoning our 60-year relationship with Wilmot due to Vail's policies against children's clubs on weekends. We will be working over the Summer to refine some of our processes and provide new ways to learn about Blizzard. I am slowly returning any articles of clothing and gear that are marked to their owners. Let me know if you want to look through our Lost & Found or send a description of what you are missing. Have a safe and healthy Summer.
