Thanks Ben and Colin!
Gren - that is Gogebic Community College not how you have been spelling it
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

That t shirt is a classic!
When do you open for skiing?
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.) ... See MoreSee Less

The flurry of activities begins....slalom poles coming in from Utah for our Junior Race Program, specialized 480 volt electrical plugs coming in from Ill for our snowmaking machines, another big batch of nuts and bolts from the Bolt Factory, specialized air sanitaion equipment and materials for our air scrubbers coming in from all over, etc etc etc.......about 6 more weeks till we start seeing snow....its going to be a good one. Are you getting ready ? ... See MoreSee Less

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.
Now the fun begins...two track belts are going to be replaced with new ones.....a total of 540 nuts and bolts first get removed. Then the new replacement track belts get positioned. And then they get bolted on to the track "grousers" with yep 540 new nuts and bolts. Best way to do the job is with the whole track turned on its edge instead of lying flat on the ground. Since it weighs about a 800 lbs we dont want anybody squished (bad for the grass) so we have to have a safety frame with all sorts of safety straps. Kudos to Brad and Karen for volunteering to put in a bunch of time removing the old bolts. It starts going back together this week. ... See MoreSee Less

Hope u have a good torch too
We have had several people contact us regarding use of the plastic face shields as a "mask" . The full plastic face shields are designed to give some level of protection to the wearer ,primarily as eye protection, from a patients bodily fluids which may contain blood or urine etc with pathogens. If you notice in a lot of news or internet pieces the face shields are typically worn by people in the medical field and those people are also wearing a face mask that covers the nose and mouth. The plastic face shields provide next to zero protection from airborne particles/virus that may be exhaled or inhaled....you are creating a high risk for yourself and potentially others if you already have the virus by relying on plastic face shields as an airborne virus protection device. ...

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

So let me get this straight...put on a face mask to get on and off the lift, touch your face mask with your gloved/mittened hands to take it off for going down the hill, touch your face mask to put it back on at the bottom, then touch the lift? People want to use the old “not everyone is wearing masks” as a reason the virus is continuing to spread, but I would submit that the average Joe has zero idea about common practices for donning and doffing their masks without cross contamination. More people are wearing masks now than before, which means more people are cross contaminating EVERYTHING they come into contact with, which is 100% why the virus is spreading exponentially more now than it was before. Just saying.
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 ? ... See MoreSee Less

Hows this for a change in pace ? Remember that great snow season last winter....our back runs had powder skiing up to three feet deep....on top of a deep base. This vidio came from Mount Ripley and as you can see their ski patrollers are having a blast. The Camp 10 Ski Patrol is conducting OEC training for new National Ski Patrol candidate members and this will be followed with toboggan rescue training once the white stuff comes to visit. If you have any interest in becoming a ski patroller at the Camp 10 Ski Area contact us at email@example.com. ... See MoreSee Less
