Camp 10 News, Updates, and Upcoming Events!

The National Ski Areas Association industry wide "Ski Well be Well" Industry wide Anti Covid 19 Practices will be in place at the Camp 10 Ski Area this winter. We will be introducing you to all of the NSAA practices plus a number of additional practices that will be in place at the Camp 10 Ski Area this winter as steps to help protect staff and guests. We have a very high regard for the protection of staff and guests and none of the prescribed practices will be voluntary. First thing we should talk about is masks. We fully understand that there has been a certain amount of contraversy in this area and a number of people have taken the approach its their choice and their right to decide.....and thats true. Except at NSAA member areas, which we are one, Masks are worn to protect others and the wearer...its not a me situation its a we situation. CDC recommended masks will be required indoors, at the lift loading stations, lift unloading stations, and any outside area where social distancing requirements cant be met. Plastic Face shields are not acceptable face masks as they provide no lateral seal or protection, gaiters are not acceptable masks as they do not meet CDC recommendations. What about medical waiver ? Though the person who has a medical waiver has received that from a medical authority that medical waiver does not provide any protection to others and does nothing to prevent the holder of a medical waiver to be exhaling covid into the air and exposing others if the individual has symptoms or is asymptomatic,ie, carrying the virus yet not having symptoms. CDC Mask recommendations are a requirement for everyone at the Camp 10 Ski Area....one of many steps to try to provide the best for our staff and our guests. ... See MoreSee Less

What can we say...last year we had the best powder skiing in Wisconsin and better than in most of the Midwest (plus groomed runs for those that dont get quite as excited about powder. Most midwestern skiers get pretty excited about skiing "powder" when its up to their boot tops....last year our powder runs were over three feet deep with packed powder bases. This should be an especially good winter as we all get the chance to be close to "normal" on the ski slopes with plenty of fresh air in our faces and that special fun back in our hearts. Any potential "newbies" out there should consider giving skiing or snowboarding a try ...we have an excellent ski and snowboard school to get you started. Yes, the pictures a spoof but it mimics the fun were all looking forward to. ... See MoreSee Less

Formal plans are already being announced for this winter with regard to how the skiing world is going to be impacted by current efforts to promote as much as a safe environment for guests and staff's as possible. Vail just announced that all of the Vail properties (many ski areas owned by Vail) will be operating on a lift tickets (and everything else) by reservation system only. The number of tickets available will be limited. All staff and guests will have to wear CDC approved masks. There is a probability that all ski areas will have limits placed on the number of participants compared to available capacity . The general industry information indicates that all guests and staff at all ski areas throughout North America will be required to wear CDC approved masks. There is also a strong possibility that , due to restrictions on inside capacity, guests may be required to change into ski boots in their cars and not bring boots,bags, skiis etc into ski lodges. We will stay closely in tune to what is happening in the North American ski industry and how it will effect staff and guests at all ski areas. Keep in mind that all of these things are happening in the best interests of everyone. The fun of the wind in your face and the escape in the outdoors is still there for everyone to enjoy but we will have to do those things that the industry is requiring in order to provide the best atmosphere we can. ...

Sad that this country has been so inept at handling this virus that we are still paralyzed by it and probably still will be into 2021 - pathetic!!

Here we are August 25th and ski season is a little over three months away....and yes there is going to be a ski season in spite of this "thing" we've all been dealing with in one way or another since last March. And its going to be a good winter of skiing and snowboarding fun as long as we all work together and of course get a little help from Mother Nature and our snowmaking system. We've already had a lot of activities underway to make additional improvements with our snowmaking and grooming facilities...and more yet to do. But we've also had a pretty fair amount devoted to development of plans so that we can all enjoy this winter in spite of the virus thing. Our planning, and yes we are still working on details of the final plan, has been a work in process over the past three months. The final plans will of course incorporate all of the best recommendations from our local, State, and Federal health and scientific experts. We will also be utilizing all of the uniform ski industry practices and protocols currently being developed by the National Ski Areas Association designed for both ski area staffing and ski area guests. We will of course be sharing all of these plans with our employees, volunteer staff, season pass holders, our general customer base, and our local health authorities as the plans get beyond the final tweaking.

But, and that ever present but, this is and will be a team effort which includes all of us working together to assure that we can all enjoy the great winter that we are anticipating. We are ALL in this together and the catch phrase for this coming season, across the entire winter skiing/snowboarding industry and guest community is "Don't be the reason that we lose our season". With a team approach we can do this. Are you on board ?

After a lot of struggles with a balky exhaust system on our LMC2100 Grooming Machine we bit the bullet and got a different exhaust manifold, scrounged the country for a new header pipe (not findable) and finally re-engineered a drawing so we could build a left side exhaust down pipe....almost four days of effort but this gets us one item checked off the list. Next up is replacing some track belts. New brake band installed in the chairlift service brake...another checked off the list.... replaced a motor to fan shaft coupling in SM snowmaker Number 6...and one more off the list. Now lets see hmmm, about sixty more items to go. We've just signed up two more volunteer ski patrollers, plus we are looking for some more good people in ski patrol, ski school instructors, and some other fun people for our lift operator positions.

We'll be attending some Zoom meetings put on by the National Ski Areas Association next week to exchange ideas on best practices for the well being of our staff and guests next winter. Stay safe, wear a mask to protect yourself and others.

Camp 10 Ski Patrol will be conducting a National Ski Patrol Outdoor Emergency Care Course. all subject matter will be covered in online classes until probably December and then the practical application material will be conducted in physical class. Outddor Emergency Care is a prerequisite requirement to becoming a Patroller. During the winter months Patrollers receive training and qualification in toboggan handling/rescue to become Alpine Patrollers. Candidates should be competent strong skiers or snowboarders. Interested parties should message us via Facebook or e mail camp10skiarea@yahoo.com ... See MoreSee Less

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 ...
