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

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.

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

MSAA Conference Day 3: Day three started with a presentation by the National Ski Areas Association President which included a very detailed analysis of results and trends in the ski industry and different programs underway to promote growth. Then it was off to a session regarding the National Ski Patrol and how patrollers are "covered" by insurance through NSP on training activities and covered by the ski area in other activities...good session for owners but not so much for general customer interest - sorry about that guys and gals. Then off to lunch in the trade show hall, which was a working lunch, gathering more information on the latest and greatest...you'd be pleased to know that outside of our aged grooming equipment we are holding our own pretty well.. Then into a session on snowmaking pump house design...wanted to find out the pros and cons of tying our 40 hp vertical turbine pump int the same manifold as our 150 hp vertical turbine pump....turns out that has technical issues but we can overcome them by including some additional valves...this is good. When we get to that stage it will give us a whole nuther level of flexiblity- but first things first and that is the plan (hope) to double our available electric power. A great day and I went to sleep very quickly that Tuesday night. ... See MoreSee Less

MSAA Conference Day 2: Attended two sessions related directly to cafeteria operations. menues, and food prep...Excellent presentations by a renowned food and beverage international consultant and Miah and I will be doing some team planning on some good stuff for next winter. Also attended a great session on e mail marketing-almost overwhelming but it has a great upside potential..then it was off to the trade show hall and had meetings with two more ski industry insurance personnel, snowmaking equipment suppliers, the folks who will be rebuilding some of our snowmaking hose (yep, it is rebuild-able) , talked with a couple of ski industry uniform suppliers who had some great ideas for jackets/vests for our potential Mountain Host program. Things topped off with a session with some snowpark terrain feature manufacturers from a Canada...home by 9:30 and prep for day 3. ... See MoreSee Less

Very busy week this week as we participate in the Midwest Ski Areas Association annual summer meeting and trade show at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva WI. Things started off well at the kick off meeting Sunday night where we won a $600 ramp deck surface kit...provides a slidable cover when snow is thin....met with the NSP Central Division Director to kick around ideas on development of a NSP Bike Patrol for potential summer mountain biking activities, met with an insurance rep during dinner to talk about insurance options (the biggest single cost in our operating budget). Also obtained more on utilization of the NSP Mountain Host program which is a very nice entry program into NSP Ski Patrolling Nice thing about this venue is that its an easy drive from my home . Lots of good tech sessions on the agenda Monday through Wed...more updates later. ... See MoreSee Less

Some things ya just gotta learn the hard way....we had two posts related to a very important project that could have significant results for our customers (July 27 & July 30) Only roughly 1/3 of our followers even looked at the posts, A little over 3% of those who saw the posts actually "liked" them. Of the 1/3 that took the time to read the posts 0.2% actually acted on it by purchasing a January lift ticket.
Wisconsin ski areas have had 5 years in a row of challenging winters. Four years ago Olympia closed. About three years ago Hidden Valley closed, then recently Navarino Hills closed.
Five plus years ago somebody donated at chairlift to Mt Ashbaway (sp?) then Mt Ashbaway raised $500,000 from the public to install the chairlift
Four years ago the folks from Stevens Point contributed about $150,000 so they could get snowmaking on their local hill.
Winter Park Ski Hill in Kewaunee received a gift from one of their locals...the gift is a chair lift. They are now raising funds from the community to get it installed.
We just got back from a terrific trip through 11 National Parks, today we sold our Toyota MR2, and we've got a number of small projects underway at the ski area. Life is good even if. ... See MoreSee Less

I Have Lived and skied at Most Of The Big Resorts In Colorado and What You Guys Have And Do At Camp 10 fueled my Ski Dreams to Ski The Big Ones out West.... I learned to ski there in late 70s / Early 80s in fact was skiing and watched the Miracle on Ice live at camp 10 and grew up in Monico I used to look forward to most every Winter weekend spent at camp 10 Keep on Fueling Dreams...…...Thank You....
LOTSA PEOPLE LIKE MOUNTAIN BIKING......LOTSA PEOPLE LIKE SKIING.....AND LOTSA PEOPLE WONT BE ABLE TO DO EITHER IF MORE PEOPLE DONT BECOME INVOLVED AS VOLUNTEER MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL SKI PATROL.....OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS ALL SKI AREAS ARE HAVING A HARDER TIME FINDING ENOUGH PEOPLE INTERESTED IN BECOMING QUALIFIED SKI PATROLERS OR MOUNTAIN BIKE PATROLERS OR BOTH.
The Camp 10 Ski Area is no different...we have a great ski patrol but they are stretched pretty thin...people have said they would like to see us make night skiing available...well guess what? Right now we dont have enough patrollers available to provide coverage for
both night skiing and daytime skiing. People have expressed an interest in mountain biking .....dito on not having enough ski patrolers (or mountain bike patrollers to provide coverage)....ho hum you might say-until you need one, or possibly need some help in staying alive, - yes accidents can and do happen in any sport and for those sports that dont take place in an auditorium, or on a school athletic field etc you most likely get that first level of care from someone with ski patrol training. And guess what ? That someone may be just like you in their day job as a teacher, a plumber, a baker, a banker, a sales clerk, or a vice president of sales. They come from all walks of life with a similar motivation...to be there to help when needed. So how about a little thought to giving back ?
If you've got the motivation we can get you trained.....consider becoming one of the 30,000 dedicated volunteer ski patrollers who provide a bit of reassurance for the 5,700,000 who enjoy skiing or snowboarding ....lets see thats roughly one ski patroller for every 190 folks who never give it a second thought until they need one. You can have a lot of fun in life AND enjoy a great deal of personal satisfaction in knowing that you are ready if and when needed. ... See MoreSee Less

What kind of incentives are your offering? When I patrolled, I got a season pass for myself and my whole family. Great discounts on food and lodging. And lots of Prodeals. Now it seems that a lot of that is going away. Too much headache and time commitment to get trained and stay up to date. Not worth it to me anymore.
I have only seen mountain bike patrols at races, never when just riding trails. That includes lift assisst at Spirit Mountain and many other trails around the country.

The National Ski Patrol gives us some good info on water safety and yhings to be aware of....the National Ski Patrol is a 30,000+ volunteer national organizations whos members are key assets at almost every North American Ski Area...if you like people,love skiing or snowboarding and would like to learn some stuff that will benefit you, your family, freinds, and possibly strangers in need of help we'd like you to consider becoming part of the National Ski Patrol at the Camp 10 Ski Area.
