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.

0-2.... So mud?!

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

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

Wow, todays the big 80....hard to believe that I've now spent more of my life in my avocation in the ski industry compared to my vocation in the industrial industry but what a hoot. The ski industry has basically been a labor of love enjoying much of the challenge of owning/developing a decent sized ski area in a remote (relative to those near large population centers) location . The added challenge of doing everything out of cash flow has added a few grey hairs but the overall adventure has kept me mentally alert (sometimes debatable) and relatively fit. The past two years have been a bit more challenging as the bod is showing a bit of wear and tear but its still been doable thanks to an excellent group of employees, some fine spurts of community volunteerism, and some pretty wonderful customers. This past winter I had opportunities to sit back and reflect on just how fortunate all of us are with our relatively young staff that certainly rose to the occasion.....they were at the point that the day to day operations were in good hands in all facets and I became more of a cheerleader than a doer.

This years new addition of covid-19 has added another bump but we are still forging ahead. We will have many things in place for the winter season that will enhance protection for staff and customers...all of the things you have been hearing about plus some added things that may be unique to our operation. We think the plan is good and will continue to tweak based on best practices as they are developed.

Operations will have some new goodies this year as more improvements are being made to our grooming equipment including special attachments to address those "hardpack" days during limited fresh snow periods, more work to bring more aerial snowmaking equipment on line, and an expansion of community youth programs. All of this as a plan of celebrating my big 80 year and as necessary steps to help assure a successful transition when transition time comes.

Stay healthy stay safe and thanks to all of you for being part of the Camp 10 Ski Area adventure.

A bit of light on the horizon but its still a situation where we have to have a plan A ...a plan B... and even a plan C. and doing that while working through the state business environment...and no we dont mean this as a crying in our beer, or whatever, as many businesses and families are going through even bigger challenges. We cant fix that but what we can do is our very best for our staff and our customers in doing "stuff" to insure that you'll have a lot of fun next winter. A very very special thank you to all of our customers who stepped up and purchased season passes for next winter....we appreciate all of our customers ,staff,and volunteers. Camp 10 Ski Area absolutely wouldn't be possible with the involvement of all of you. Keep safe, follow the recommendations, have some fun when you can, and think of others. ... See MoreSee Less

Covid-19 and what is your Camp 10 Ski Area doing/contemplating with respect to staff and guests ? We will be having some employee activity in the off season and then as we progress toward fall and winter operations we also have to consider what mitigation/prevention steps to have in place if needed. The reality is that we could see a second wave which, based on information available, could run early fall till early December. Our approach is hope for the best and prepare for the not so best....with that in mind we can tell you that a planning process has started which, among other things , has included teleconferencing with ski areas throughout the United States and Canada . Almost all ski areas are currently in a shutdown mode with minimal staffing related to maintenance and construction. We will have some of our employees and volunteer construction crews starting to do our off season stuff in a few weeks. So step one is to have our plan in place to minimize close proximity and exposure to virus exposure for our off season team. Looking towards the winter operation (we think the virus concern will be behind us our greatly minimized by then) we have to have some steps in place with respect to inside operations, lift operator interaction, and ski patrol protocols , . In a few weeks there will be more cross industry communications where we will be exchanging thoughts/ideas etc relating to guest experience and what can be done to reduce risk. In short a lot is going on and a lot of procedures are being developed across the winter sports industry. Through our involvement with the Mid America Ski Association and the National Ski Areas Association we will be in a good position to utilize the best of ideas and approaches that fit our employees, guests, volunteers, and operation. In the meantime stay safe and wear a mask when in public things will get better. ... See MoreSee Less
