Camp 10 News, Updates, and Upcoming Events!

How or why this tiny frog decided to work his (or her) way half way up our door to be able to snuggle behind a door steel piece is a puzzle...but here he is. I decided he'd be safer in the grass so he was carefully removed and relocated. You can see in the picture that his body color is mimicking the color of the steel piece....but his lower body (hidden behind the steel piece) is a bright green....mother nature doing her magic. On to other things... progress being made on all of those wonderful off season maintenance and improvement projects ; chairlift service brakes disassembled for brake relining, tower circuits being checked and test plugs being replaced, groomer work continues with exhaust system work, and a continuation of the rewiring project, lots of detailed service work going on with six of our carriage mounted snowmaking units . We will be doing a National Ski Patrol Outdoor Emergency Care online course for our new ski patrol candidates- the final 30% of the material is "hands on" but our planning is to get into that material when the temperatures have dropped (a lot) and the virus risks have also gone down. Speaking of virus risks, we will be doing a special posting with specific information on what we will be doing for guests and staff...and its a lot. One thing thats already a plus for all of us - Camp 10 Ski Area has always operated in a very family oriented environment with almost zero lift lines and no jam packed days and this will be a big big big plus factor in enabling plenty of social distancing in most of the ski area. ...

Well part of the plan for this spring early summer was to invite a bunch of mountain bike enthusiasts out to look at the potential for a mountain bike program.....covid 19 put that on hold....BUT at least the wildlife doesn't seem to be too phased and they haven't gotten the message yet about how important it is to wear masks......but as you can see in the photo this snapping turtle is doing her best to maintain social distancing......at least I knew I was doing my darnedest to maintain distancing while taking the photo----and the virus had absolutely nothing to do with my precaution. Hope you are all having a grand summer and enjoying the beautiful Northwoods. We keep plugging away at a number of routine Camp 10 Ski Area maintenance programs and some continuous improvement stuff. Stay safe, have some fun, and be conscious and kind towards your neighbor. Ps- were still drumming up participants for our ski patrol training programs and looking for volunteers to help with our Junior Racing Programs and yes if you think you have decent communication skills and actually know how to ski with a minimal amount of sitzmarks we'd like to help you become a ski instructor ...

Yes its summertime....but yesterday we visited a ski area and acquired four more of the Snowstream 320 boom mounted snowmaking machines. We'll start the disassembly and transport to Camp 10 Ski Area this week. The technology on these snowguns dates back to the late 70's but they were the machines that led the revolution in snowmaking..and even today these guns are efficient and generate large quantities of snow.as you can see from the pic they do generate large piles of snow. We have six of these units presently installed plus five more that we are building up plus these four that we just acquired plus another eight carriage mounted units plus one very modern "Pole Cat" snowmaker. This is all part of the continuous improvement program we have at Camp 10 Ski Area. Our objective is to be able to go from zero snow on the ground to an opened ski area within 24 hours...that a pretty high goal but thats our goal. Its super when we have great early snowfalls but as everyone saw winter before last we had almost no snow till the middle of January. No snowmobile trails were open, no cross country ski trails were open but Camp 10 Ski Area had good skiing. We appreciate the support we receive from all of our customers from near and far that continues to make these things possible.. ... See MoreSee Less

If we were closer, we'd take this great bargain. Good luck !

Love me some Rhinelander skiing where everyone treats you like family & the prices are fair. Support The Hodag Store B&B resale.

What are your normal winter rates?

Good deal

To add the pass perk option for others resorts is there an additional cost?

Gren just mailed you $ for Tele Tom

Hi Gren, Just mailed a deposit for 2 passes.

Hard to believe just a few months ago we had all that snow but that’s the greatest part of living in the Northwoods having the Four Seasons. 😍

I love living with 4 distinct seasons!!

It is serenity now

Well one fringe benefit of the stay at home time was addressing another challenge with our snow grooming equipment ...the before picture shows the back side of the instrument panel with half the gauges not working and an impossible mess to work with......the second one is the completely rewired instrument panel with all of the none working components replaced. Nice thing about this is the new set up could be bench tested before installing. Next up is the installation on Sunday. One hundred and eight days till we start making snow. ... See MoreSee Less

Neat and clean panel work Gren, but I have never seen a panel like that on any upright pianos before. Is the piano a thiokol?

Sure sure things are starting to open up a little bit but you may still be playing it safe and staying closer to home...and maybe going a little, how shall we say ?, nuts. Ok so here comes another little diversion. Fun on the snow starts in about 180 days and one of the keys to having more fun on the snow is having those body parts in good shape...heres a You tube fitness program put together by a physical therapist who also happens to be a PSIA instructor. Take a look and go have some fun with it, and if you really get in good shape theres an 80 year old guy that might let you try to beat him on the Camp 10 Ski Area slalom course......well maybe instead we could just talk about it. Anyway give it a look youtu.be/wFNICXGenLk ... See MoreSee Less

Heres a little divergence for you....according to the operations log book from Sunday Dec 29, 1974 (Rhinelander -Tomahawk Ski Corp)

Base 0-2 inches no new snow conditions poor

Attendance 278 which included 89 season pass holders, 57 adult lift tickets, 92 student lift tickets, 32 bunny tow tickets , and 2 two day tickets for a total of 278 lift tickets....all of this on the 0 to 2 inch base

Somehow, in this day and age I dont thi nk we could quite get away with that

Thought that might give you a chuckle in todays crazy world.

I was a senior in high school over in Price County that winter. Unfortunately I never knew about Camp 10 until many years later. Anyway being tied to the cows and no transportation it was probably for the best.

I had a season pass that year. It was a terrible season. But we went anyway.

0-2.... So mud?!

I was there

Oh big mama would have been there! But we bought house in 75

We were there a lot in those days.

People using 2x4's as skis too?😅

Just spent about an hour and a half on a vidio conference through the National Ski Areas Association with about 180 other ski area owners/GMs and ski area cafe/restaurant managers regarding recommended best practices and special actions to insure guest and staff safety in this coming ski season....lots of good stuff but you'll also be pleased to know that our plans are already matching with some of the best and biggest players in the industry. Rest assured we are doing and planning everything we can to present staff, volunteers , and guests with the best winter experience possible. ... See MoreSee Less
