Yes, "during" and "of" are both prepositions.
The object of "during" is "the height of the blizzard."
The object of "of" is "the blizzard."
We have nested prepositional phrases.
It might be clearer how this nesting works in "during the blizzard's height." The meaning of "blizzard's height" and "height of the blizzard" is the same, but there is no "of" to complicate the analytic decomposition of the main phrase.
