Shop early for any ski clothing/equipment you may be thinking of purchasing for next winter......recent posts by SIA indicate a potential price markup of 25% on a number of soft and hard goods typically purchased by skiers and snowboarders such as helmets, gloves, outerwear, ski boots etc as these items fall under the next category of Chines imports that will be subject to the 25% import tariff. The 25% will be past on to the distributors, the shops, and at end of the day to the buyers. Or shop for stuff produced in the USA, Europe, VietNam etc. ... See MoreSee Less

from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism...Outdoor recreation is "the number one marketable driver" for people outside the state to visit Wisconsin, a tourism department news release said. That includes the hundreds of acres of state forests, parks,beaches, and ski areas .
Tourist spent 17.9 billion on outdoor gear and supplies in Wisconsin every year according to the release. The outdoor recreation industry is also tied to 168,000 jobs.
"We not only want Wisconsin to remain a top-notch four-season tourist destination but we also want to create a climate that will spur business growth and attract new business to Wisconsin"
Last winter Camp 10 Ski Area had a very good Christmas Holiday business period.... a very high percentage of our customers were from out of state. We also had a very good MLK Weekend and Presidents DAy weekend, again with high percentage of our customers being from out of state.
In January when snowmobiing business was having one of its worst periods due to not enough snow we were still gathering out of state business thanks to our snowmaking.
We have plans well under way for doubleing the size of our snowmaking capablity ....we have the snowmaking machines but need to double the amount of electric power availability. We are now looking into various ways to raise the capital required. ... See MoreSee Less

You’d be better off with a slow friend than fast shoes.
He just wanted to purchase a season pass!
Mel's in Rhinelander carries bear spray. Unlikely you'd need it, but I carry it when I trail run in case I meet Mama bear with cubs.
Hoping to visit your area this week with my boyfriend & our 🚲🚲
Anyone have any suggestions?
While heading back to the ski lodge to grab some more tools happened to look up the ski hill....the picture really doesnt capture it but there were two Black Bears near a chair tower base...the one was a whopper and the second was a pretty good size also....even though I ran with my tape measure I couldnt catch up with them to get an accurate size. Saw one of the bears the next day by the ski patrol building.... ... See MoreSee Less

Project #2 making good progress-parts loaded and on their way back to the ski area, Groomer work being scheduled with Driveable Performance -last year was some pretty major stuff on the groomers while this year its a number of small things that will make it easier to get more of our staff involved in grooming. Working with Wisconsin Public Service to determine a plan for doubling our available 3 phase 480 volt electrical service...more power means we can run more snowmaking machines means better opening conditions and having more terrain open....we are all looking forward to summer fun but we also remember last January when there was no snowmobiling, very little cross country skiing, and the only place with snow (in the local region) was Camp 10 Ski Area thanks to our snowmaking system...what we are working towards is an even bigger more efficient system. ...

So what am I looking it in this picture? Looks like freshly painted thing-a-ma-gigs.
Are those safety bars for the chairs?
Usually key projects at the ski area involve BIG stuff....heres one that involves very tiny pieces that become part of a much bigger thing...ah for the tedium of it all...IF this actually works out as hoped it will be something that adds to what the ski area can do ...we'll tell you more after we've had a chance to see how the plan is falling in place. Keep having spring/summer fun and we'll keep working on the thingies.😎 ... See MoreSee Less

Real heros don’t wear capes.
Tons and tons of snow last winter and we couldn't open our West Side T Bar.....managed to wipe out the safety circuit when the groomer driver (me) got too close to a couple of check stations. Both have been completely rebuilt and tested....the rebuild also involved some redesign and the end result is a working system that is also a marked improvement. First improvement project for the 2019-20 ski season completed. ... See MoreSee Less

Looking for a career in police, fire, health care ? Consider becoming a ski patroller first and you can pick up four college credit hours which will be a help to your career choice. Dont want/need the college credits ? You can take the same course on an audit (none credit) basis which is a lower cost but carry's the same weight with respect to meeting your National Ski Patrol requirement.....a really neat thing is that you can take the majority of the course via the internet with classroom sessions only for those first aid areas needing hands on experience.....Geeze, as a fringe benefit Brad and Gren can now refer to them selves as college professors. If you are in the medical field and have credentials as an EMT or Paramedic you receive credit for that background in a good portion of our Outdoor Emergency Care (first aid) course. We are planning for an OEC course later this year which is a requirement in becoming a qualified ski patroller . ... See MoreSee Less

Upgrading electric power and adding six more snowmaking machines to our grid is the next objective. Leading up to this we have expanded our pipeline on Snowdallion, added additional underground wiring, installed three more tower mounted snowmaking machines. We have an additional 8 more snowmaking machines and tower mounts requiring some level of refurbishment (this was part of the 13 machine package we purchased two years ago). Bids have been taken on the related installation of six class 5 tower masts......the project layout and plan is in place......BUT...nothing is free and we are going to need some help on this one. We've been into a major program over he past three years investing heavily in other aspects of the snowmaking expansion and considerable rebuilding of grooming equipment. We are still gathering some info on how we can approach something like a "Go Fund the Project Program. This project not only allows our skiers and snowboarders to have a longer better season but it also impacts and enhances the experience for second home owners, winter tourists, other local businesses on a local and dual county wide basis. Remember the start of this past winter ? There was no snowmobiling, there was no cross country skiing....the only thing that was up and running was the Camp 10 Ski Area thanks to the current snowmaking system. Yes, we did set a state record for snowfall but that didnt start to happen until February. With the climate changes we are witnessing we have to be proactive and give ourselves, which means all of us, maximum flexibility to provide this fun family based winter activity. Yes, Camp 10 Ski Area is a "for profit" operation but you can check with any who are familiar with the operation and they will tell you that for 40 years the owners have not taken one nickle of "profit" in salary, wages, dividends etc....all revenue from operations has 100% gone back into the operations and operation equipment improvements plus the Rudds have donated thousands of man hours and many many thousands of dollars towards the continued growth, expansion, and improvement of facilities. This next step is a needed and very important step....we could use a little help. Details to be announced soon. ... See MoreSee Less
