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. ...

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

The Camp 10 Ski Patrol welcomes inquires from potential candidates contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. Take a peek at the vidio on the Mad River Ski Patrol for an idea of why we do what we do. Most of patrollers come into patrolling with no medical background but learn the skills necessary to help and transport injured or ill skiers/snowboarders.

I was Skiing At Camp 10 as a child the Day The USA beat Russia in Hockey...
Roughly 7 years ago we adopted a policy of moving our early bird season pass sale to March and using the criteria that the March Sale had to cover a major portion of insurance cost in order for us to proceed towards opening for the following winter. The policy worked well until we were hit with a Trifecta of events three winters ago building to this current year: (1) three less than ideal winters weather wise in a row- this past winter, even with records in snowfall, had a very challenging December and January. (2) three winters ago our liability insurance underwriter exited the business and the next available underwriter had a 50% higher premium. (3) a number of strongly supporting families aged out (kids grew up and/or got involved with many competing activities) resulting in our industry leading season pass renewal rate for a five year period reversing itself to an industry lagging position. This March we introduced additional choices to our season pass program: The $149 pass with a lot of special features, the $99 pass with some add on options, and our new $78 Sundays only pass. We have seen a good response in all three categories and kudos to all of you who have renewed or purchased your first time pass....your support has been and is absolutely a key for continuation of the Camp 10 Ski Area.
We have just completed a three year program of significant additions, and equipment refurbishments leading to a big improvement in ski area operational capabilities and guest enhancements : major groomer rebuilding work, significant expansion of our snowmaking machine fleet, adding snowmaking capability to another major run (98% complete), additions to our rental shop, and completion of out ski lodge new roof project.
"Must do" projects for this summer include: completion of the snowmaking expansion to Snowdallion Run , upgrading our power supply from 400KW to 800 KW which enables much more effective use of our snowmaking system, completion of our race timing system so we can resume our junior race program, and significant upgrades in our terrain park set ups.
Success in getting these things done is of course driven by available funds and we will be utilizing a number of different approaches to accomplish the needed funding.
Step One will be the extension of our Spring Season Pass Sale: The three spring options will be extended till April 20th. The $142 pass ($149 with tax) includes full access on all operating days and nights as scheduled, a photo laminated passholder identification pass, indoor storage of skiis/boots, a cafeteria discount, and periodic guest lift ticket discounts. The $99 pass ($104 with tax) covers all lift tickets for the pass purchaser on any Camp 10 Ski Area operating day and nights as scheduled . As an option the $99 pass purchaser may purchase a laminated photo id pass for an additional $15 which enables access to the Pass Perks program. The $78 ($82 with tax) Sundays Pass which covers skiing/snowboarding on any operating Sunday during the ski season - this pass was specifically designed for those individuals who have very committed Saturday schedules.
The Spring Pass Sale is extended until April 20th. Please share this information with your skiing/snowboarding friends .....pass holder purchases will continue to b e the significant and needed involvement for continued success and improvements to our many projects for our winter programs. ...
