Camp 10 News, Updates, and Upcoming Events!

No, this isnt now but it will be soon. Its finally starting to get a bit cooler and we may be starting to make snow later next week. We are all chomping on the bit and anxious for the season to start. When we do get underway we think we'll able to provide quite a few of the "normal" ski area services you've come to expect all while following CDC and NSAA guidelines. Our ski lodge will still be serving that famous turkey chilli and lots of other good stuff and yes you will able to lower your masks while eating a great lunch. Camp 10 Ski Area and our guests are fortunate in that our business plan never required us to have large crowds in order to open and stay open. Our uphill lift capacity and vast terrain (around the fourth largest in Wisconsin) enables us to really have a lot of on the snow space for our guests. So much so that in the past we've had the luxury of maintaining certain runs only for powder skiing...and this year we added another twist by introducing a bit of glade skiing. We have had to include a few restrictions with respect to inside activities: masks (except when eating), no carry in food or beverage, no skiis,boots,boards, bags or coolers brought into the lodge (except rental returns). We will have an outside boot changing area with some outside cubbies for your street shoes in the event you dont want to change into your boots in the car. And though we all have to live with some of the restrictions in order to have a ski season you can rest assured that we are doing some things above and beyond the normal requirements that will hopefully help protect all of us- we'll be telling you about this later after we have completed some systems tests. We will need to have you wear your masks when entering the lift loading area as you will be in closer proximity others and especially to our lift operators ... See MoreSee Less

CDC Approved Masks will be mandatory Indoors, When Loading on Ski Lifts, When 6ft distancing cannot be maintained- No Face Shields - No medical exemptions. Its going to be a different kind of winter but by taking these kind of precautionary measures for the safety of our staff and of our guests we will at least be able to have a winter and still have fun doing what we all love to do.

Mathew Roberts continues his renovation project on Camp 10 Ski Areas original ski lift installed back in 1958. This is the original lower terminal T Bar drive terminal. The T Bar building survived a lot of weather high winds, a mini tornado, but alas it was getting to the point of needing a hero or at least a heroic effort to save it....Mathew started his volunteer rescue project last year by replacing much of the roof. This summer, in a bad wind storm, a lot of damage occurred to one side wall and a roof support beam. The old stuff was removed and all of the side wall structural timbers are being replaced....this 62 year old building may make it another 62....many of the old timers in the Rhinelander Tomahawk area that helped build the original ski area can take a bit of pride in their part that resulted in this historical lift. Yes a lot has been added and improved like converting from the original gasoline engine drive to all electric plus bringing all of the controls and safety systems up to all of the latest national ski area equipment codes. Mathew has played an important part in this project . Oh, should mention that Mathew is the principal in M.J.C. Home Improvements and does beautiful work in building from scratch or completely remodeling homes....plus he and his son love snowboarding at Camp 10 Ski Area ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks Ben and Colin!

Gren - that is Gogebic Community College not how you have been spelling it

Karen, it must be. That is the only SAM program in the area that I am aware of. It is one of the best programs in the country as the conditions up there for learning are so very good!

October pass sale now through 10/28...passes may become even more important this year in the event we have limited capacities...we dont think we'll have to reduce ticket sales but if we do pass holders will have first priority...plus its a great way to save some dollars over the season and if you take the pass option you will enjoy savings at a number of partcipating ski areas and businesses.......but this sale is limited and will go till Oct 28th or when the allocation is gone whichever comes first. Hard to believe but snowmaking isnt that far off. ... See MoreSee Less

With a new intern from the Ski Area Management class of Gogebic Community College this is shaping up to be a great ski year.

Do you print this form and mail it?

Looks like someone is scrunched down in the corner hiding from porcupines....but no its a hardy soul tackling the project of preparing groomer tracks for the install of a second new belt....219 nuts and bolts, 73 new or reconditioned backing plates, and 440 stainless steel washers and before that it was the agony of removing the old stuff using impact wrenches, special tool, and in the worst case burning through many high speed cutting wheels to remove those extra nasty fittings. And in between we had a ski patroller from Nordic Mnt stop for a visit, Dennis stopped in with the newly rebuilt voltage regulator for the chair lift, and another ski slope got mowed., and then as a bonus for the day we completed some preliminary test on some of our snowguns and have added two more to our growing fleet. Beautiful fall colors in the Northwoods but snows a comin, are you getting ready ? ... See MoreSee Less

When do you open for skiing?

That t shirt is a classic!

Stuff keeps coming in from every direction....today a new shipment of ski boots from Head-Tyrolia in New York showed up for our rental shop, a hydraulic specialty shop in California is working with us on rebuild kits for the special tool we use to put T's on our T Bar lifts, a Wisconsin shop is fabricating some stuff for our air scrubbers designed for special aitr "washing" in the ski lodge (removes air borne bacteria/viruses etc....

And a big thanks for all who became part of the Camp 10 Ski group via purchases of their Season Passes in the September sale....and measurable snowfall starts in about six weeks (but just in case we are still doing a buncha stuff with our snowmaking gear.)

Ready! Ok, so I should probably wash my ski pants and wax my skis, but I could get away without doing that, lol.

Bolts, nuts, purifiers...essential shopping.
