Can't wait to start helping again!!
First snowfall on Saturday - should we open ? Nah, after a little thought we decided that opening next weekend would be nice but the base would be a bit too thin. But its coming!!!

Awesome Great news Gren
First Snowfall always gets you totally in the preparation for the upcoming season.
Great Job with all of your new updates, I’m hoping this season is a fantastic season for you.
We saw you mowing the other day, what a chore.
That sounds awesome! We’re looking forward to the new season at camp 10. Do you have plans for doing a terrain park this year?
I think we’ve skied on less b4!
Doing bench checks of our Junior Racing Program electronic timing system. The system will be set up on "Snowdallion" now that we have expanded our snowmaking system to also cover that major run. Participants are grade school through high school. Youth must be able to turn and stop and be ble to ride the T Bar ski lift unassisted. Waivers will be required. We are also looking for helpers with some prior ski race and/or coaching experience. Parents/Youths interested in this program should contact us at email@example.com ... See MoreSee Less

After giving it much thought I've concluded that I am the best weather forecaster in the Northwoods. If you ever want a really accurate forecast on when its going to rain just check with us and see when we have a big outdoor project planned. Mowing headwalls is sorta life surfing down a really big wave🙃 ... See MoreSee Less

Don’t forget a short video clip or 2 if someone is able to.
This is what it looks like when a whole big bunch of ski patrollers gather in one room......we (Mary, Jim, and Gren from the Camp 10 Ski Patrol) are participating in the Little Switzerland Ski Patrol Annual Refresher in Slinger Wisconsin this past Saturday. Looks like a big party, but whats a "Refresher" you might wonder ? Every year the National Ski Patrol designs a program to go over approximately 1/3 of the emergency first aid materials with hands on practice addressing, bleeding, fracture stabilization, shock, 02 administration, assisted breathing, femur splinting, impaled injuries and a whole host of items. Its a busy day and the "refresher" also includes an online mini refresher on other first aid topics that the patroller covers. Over the next two months all of the Camp 10 NSP Patrollers will be participating in refreshers that take place at a number of different places throughout Wisconsin and Michigan. Actually almost 30,000 ski patrollers throughout the United States will be participating in refresher covering the same refresher plan. Why is this done ? Its a hands on demonstration of skills for the purpose of helping us all sharpen up for the coming ski season. Hopefully we wont have to actually use those skills but we want to be as prepared as we can in the event they are needed. Ski Patrollers also do an annual review of advanced CPR skills. In addition to our Camp 10 NSP Ski Patrol we will be establishing a Camp 10 NSP Mountain Host Unit. Member's of the Mountain Host Unit will receive some first aid training so that they are in the position to be able to assist our patrollers if needed. Though their level of training is not as extensive it does meet OSHA and ANSI B77 standards. If you would be interested in further information regarding becoming part of the National Ski Patrol as either a Patroller or as a Mountain Host please contact us via Facebook Messenger or e mail at camp firstname.lastname@example.org. Wow its about 8 more weeks till snowmaking...did you purchase your season pass yet ? ... See MoreSee Less

Some coaches think its the size of the hill others think its the size of the racers heart ....The winningest female racer in US racing Linsey Vonn got her start at Buck Hill in Minnesota and skied on their teams for several years. Buck Hill and Camp 10 Ski Area are similar and Buck Hill is part of our Pass Perks program. Got an inkling to try racing ? Take a look at the Camp 10 Ski Area Junior Racing Program this winter.

1953 Ford 8N....does a great job with the mower deck.
Hope you get to try out the special mower this fall. If you haven't asked yet, highly recommend, that run is easily accessible from your main lift!
I'm a farm kid and just have to know what kind of tractor that is! Looks a Ford or Ferguson
SUMMER SEASON PASS SALE ENDS IN THREE WEEKS......Break even on your season pass purchase after using it three days...plus if you take the photo id option you'll have access to our best collection of Pass Perks ever...this year we've signed up two new ski areas and another new fitness center. Go to our wep page camp10skiandsnowboard.com then click on the Pass Perks page...we've got an amazing group of participating ski areas, fitness centers, Dells Restaurants and we've been fortunate to keep growing the list each year. Do you know what the biggest advantage is to a season pass ? If your just in the mood to take a couple of runs you'll probably do it if you are a pass holder and if not well you can always play games on your phone BUT itn sure is more fun in the winter to get out in that air and have a blast with family or friends. After not increasing lift ticket prices for what seems like forever (probably the last 7 or 8 years) we've finally and reluctantly got to nudge the price up a bit and this of course makes your pass purchase an even smarter move. SUMMER SALE ENDS IN THREE WEEKS SO DO IT NOW. ... See MoreSee Less

Have you considered making it so people can pay online by filling out an online form and using paypal? I think you might get some more takers ;) just an idea!
You can do it! The new opportunity to play a very important role at the Camp 10 Ski Area as a Mountain Host. This program has been around for a while but its new to Camp 10 Ski Area. We will engage the Mountain Host members as key support for our NSP Patrollers...our Patrol of ten NSP Patrollers gets spread a little thin and having an extra hand on those thin coverage days would be an immense help. The Patrollers would handle any emergency situation but having some Mountain Hosts available to lend a hand, under the patrollers direction, would be much much appreciated. As a Mountain Host you will receive about 10 hours of first aid instruction (standard training for an NSP Patroller is about 100 hours). From there you'll have other opportunities depending on what you'd like to try and what your interests are. And all of this comes with some pretty nice benefits- free skiing/snowboarding, a whole list of special discounts through the National Ski Patrol, and a lot of flexibility......if you'd like to find out more send us an e mail via email@example.com. ...

Another Step Closer to Reopening the West Side Blue T Bar Runs....accessing four more fantastic runs ....this project involves cutting out bad corner posts on the Blue T Bar drive terminal building. The rotted corner posts were causing the bulding to have a tilt which led to bad roof problems and water/ice freeze ups in the machinery. The posts now being replaced by concrete corner pads. ...

MSAA Convention Day 4: Enough of the convention your thinking...well this one is short and sweet- the first session of the morning was a good one to attend as it was a summary of the NSAA Downhill Bike Park Summit meeting. It proved to be a pretty good interchange of questions and ideas related to mountain biking at ski areas. A lot of info from this session will be helpful as Camp 10 Ski Area explores mountain biking possibilities. The final formal session of the confe rence was the GM/Senior Managers Roundtable meeting. These are always closed meetings where we get the opportunity to bring up any topic or problem areas in the ski area side of things....Im not going to share much here other than to tell you that all of the ski areas have basically the same challenges to deal with and the solutions sometimes get pretty creative....I came away with some good stuff.
From there it was a hope in the car a. nd a 15 mile drive up the road to Alpine Valley Ski Area and some more good discussions regarding snowmaking and ski lift operations. Snowtrack, a manufacturer of aftermarket chairlift retrofits, has just finished installing a brand new drive terminal on a relocated Hall Chair Lift. The new drive terminal typically runs around $600,000+. Yep kids thats right $600,000+ just for the drive terminal. Quite an impressive upgrade. We could do an upgrade like that if we sold a few more season passes. Well ok, a really really big bunch more. Keep having summer fun, our winter prep is already under way. Incidently, we took we took full advantage of the four days at the MSAA convention as this years location was only a 45 minute drive from home. ... See MoreSee Less
