Its time for us to start looking for some more good crew in the anticipation of being able to open more ski lifts and more runs.
If you'd like to be considered come out to Camp 10 Ski Area this weekend between 3 and 4 pm to fill out an application and get some of your questions answered.

Saturday or Sunday both?

Well!, we actually have a bit of snow in the forecast this week. MLK weekend coming up and our plan is for operations on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 9:30 to 4:00 pm. Advanced reservations not required. Camp 10 Ski Area will have normal cafeteria service available, is equipped with ski and snowboard rentals, and has the services of the National Ski Patrol and a PSIA inspired Ski School. We are in full compliance with the National Ski Areas Association Covide policies regarding CDC mask usage in the ski lodge (except when eating), mask usage is also required in lift lines and when actually going through lift loading. Plastic Face shields are not acceptable nor are scarves or neck gaiters in place of the recommended two ply CDC type face masks. The ski area has equipped the lodge with two high capacity air scrubbers that completely filter all cafeteria air approximately every five minutes removing materials down to 0.3 microns. In addition we have installed UVC sterilization lighting in our duct work which will kill airborne virus, bacteria , and mold. There are no guarantees but these steps are designed to at least reduce the risks. No carry in food or drink no reserving tables as we have indoor capacity control. Thanks to everyone's cooperation and support we are managing to have a ski season and some fun in the outdoors this winter. ... See MoreSee Less

Elizabeth Z. Garnica, here’s some info for you

Is the tbars open yet?

Many ski areas in Wisconsin and the UP have been unable to open due to such marginal snowfall. We were able to open but we sure would like some more snow or favorable weather conditions to make snow. But we arnt just sitting on our hands and wishing. Our Ski Area Management Intern has been assigned a project to prepare a Norplast Artifcal Plastic Snow Cover for our chairlift unloading ramp. We won this material at a Ski Industry Business conference and now it will be put to good use. We have been in communication with one of our ski patrollers who's also a local builder about actually moving dump trailer loads of snow to our chairlift lower terminal loading areas and or Bunny Tow rope tow area. A bit of luck with these projects and we should be able to improve on what we have. We are also looking at the possiblity of more snowmaking as it looks like we might see favorable conditions in about a week. We are trying hard and we really appreciate the favorable support we have received from so many of our customers and the hard work of our employees and volunteers to have a ski season this winter. ...

New Years Eve and New Years Day has been one big great ski/snowboard fun time as we broke attendance records on both days (and still had short lines). Having fun in the fresh air and being able to grab a great lunch in our cafeteria ( we've done some pretty creative things with high capacity air scubbers doing complete filtration of lodge air removing those pesky things we are trying to avoid down to 0.25 microns-thats tiny tiny and as an added measure were sterilizing the air in our furnace ducts with UVC continuous sterilization lighting) ...most people forget that stuff while tackling a great cheeseburger (at a very reasonable price) ...and what a great bunch of guests we've been blessed with..everyones been very cooperative with all of the masking, spacing etc requirements and supportive of all the efforts made to actually have a ski season. Visitors from as far away as Texas, Florida, California, New York, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Missouri, Minnesota and of course many many from the great State of Wisconsin.......this Saturday or Sunday might be your time to have some fun in the fresh air at Camp 10 Ski Area...and a big thanks to our friends at the local Chambers of Commerce and our regional TV Channel 12 for some excellent coverage of our fun times. ...

I spent the morning in the Chalet watching my grandkids today. We wore our masks and everyone social distanced. For all the people that were there was never a lot inside. Felt very safe. Great job, Gren👍 everyone was having a great time. A great place👍

Just a thought now that your open. I'm thinking there are a lot of Grandparents that would love to sit in there car's and watch the kids ski. Because of Covid family's can't see each other. It would be nice if you could clear some of tree by the parking lot so that could happen.

Cheryl your still a young punk. Lol I'm talking the elders that can't get to Chalet. Can stay in there warm car and watch.

Miss you this year! 😷

Kids had a great time skiing today so we will be back again tomorrow yippee thank you

How do I find out about my season passes I pre bought? Didn't even know you were open yet.

Was there today and was nice

NBC Channel 12 did a excellent Job for Camp 10 Thank you 😁

Awesome!!!!!!

Are the t bars running? Shared in. https://www.facebook.com/groups/355291398910159/?ref=share

Well the UPS Overnight Red Air delivered the part this morning....only problem is that the supplier sent the wrong part. Anyhow we are now working on plan B. The existing system has a switch which will allow manual valve activation. We are going to run a number of tests on Wed and if all goes as we hope we will be back in business on Thursday. We do have snow in the forecast tonight and we will also be into grooming as soon as that snowfall ends. ... See MoreSee Less

Yes!! The words of my kiddos! Can’t wait to be there!

Wooooo hoooo Yeesssss 🙏 ❄️

Good luck. The kids are looking forward to hitting the slopes and the fish need sometime off.

Great you are opening. Our family were every weekend skiers for many years. Your piece on WJFW was interesting but you forgot to thank all the “investors” that helped you get through a rough patch.

Are you guys going to be open Friday?

Any update on the status today? I'm in the area and would like to know if we can come!

Camp 10 Ski Area you are open Jan 1st then?

Camp 10 Ski Area will be open Friday-Sunday wishing you a happy new year and cheers to a great season🥂

Taylor and Lexi!

Latest Update - snow is improving. However , during a training exercise this afternoon we had a failure of an electronic control coil in our chair lift brake system. Our electrical team is trying to locate a replacement but as of now we don't know how quick that can be accomplished. We are very sorry to further delay opening but this is in everyone's best interest. As badly as we need to make sales we aren't going to compromise safety. Please understand we are doing everything we can to rectify this situation as soon as possible. This had been tested many times in the past few weeks with no signs of potential electronic failure. The lift itself is fine and fully functional except for this secondary (we have three braking systems on the chair lift) braking system electronic control. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks to all for the kind words and encouragement. We have an alternate solution that we will be testing tomorrow. And with this snowfall tonight , depending how much, we may also have options with our T Bar lifts.

Thanks to the outside ops team! #hugasnowmaker Thank you Gren & all your friendly staff that have welcomed us in the past. We are all anxious to include Camp 10 Ski Area as soon as possible into this new year! 🙏

Keep on fighting the good fight, Gren!

It sounds like you were working so hard to get everything up and running. This year has been so hard and so many ways. I hope you get a little bit more luck in the coming weeks.

We are coming up Wed. If you locate a part in Northern IL or on the way to Rhinelander I would be happy to pick it up.

When it rains it pours. Good luck getting things going

Disappointing but we know you are doing everything you can to open.

It’s all good. I’m off work until Saturday. 💕 😉

Ugh, 2020 strikes again

Safety first!

Have fun skiing, Dave!

They're open today New year's Eve the chairlift is running!

Camp 10 Ski Area will be open Friday-Sunday wishing you a happy new year and cheers to a great season🥂

Fire up the t-bars?

Excited. Good luck and be safe. Pictures?

Could we still come and get our Pass taken care of??

Thanks for your efforts! We have never been...do you have equipment rentals?

Thanks for the update.

If everyone could please do a snow dance it would help.

I know we had plan to come today as well but maybe next week!!

Oh no! My son had plans to board there tomorrow! Thank you for the update.

Latest update from the war zone...us against mother nature...we had a fairly major freeze up in our water line from our River pump station that feeds our high pressure high capacity snowmaking pump station. The River pump pipe line is a PVC pipe (because of the low water pressure) and the guys were able to cut out a 20 foot section and somehow manhandle it up to the ski lodge...imagine carrying a 20 foot popsicle that was 8 inches in diameter...they got it into the lodge and were able to thaw it overnight to the point that that the popsicle just slid out of the tube. Then everything went back and reassembled and it looks like our system is back to function. One inch natural snow yesterday, a couple more coming in this week and the team is planning another snowmaking session on Christmas eve. We are still on track for opening on Sunday Dec 27. Oh, while all of that good stuff was going on we discovered a leaking water pipe in the wall in the womens rest room....24 hours later the wall section ripped out, toilet stall removed, toilet disassembled, then actually fixing this was an original 1/2 pipe from the 50's which is not standard dimensions to todays products so special techniques were required-which the plumber knew how to do)...anyway its fixed and all going back together.....just another day at the office, right ? ...

Can't wait!

Everybody was too exhausted to even think about snapping a picture.....a v e r y long snowmaking session as we keep inching towards opening day. Gotta get those chair lift top ramps snowcoated then all attention shifts to Snowdallion. The way the weather forcasts look is very very little natural snow between now and Christmas. ...

When is opening day? We are very excited!

Hope my skies are ready lol

Ski The Midwest Group will see you soon. Thanks to this amazing hill and its great staff!!! #getoutdoors

Two high capacity air scrubbers will now provide complete filtration of Cafeteria and Rental areas down to less than 3 microns particle size (0.25). Doing this plus the addition of UVC sterilization to our duct work designed to kill bacteria and virus is just another step that Camp 10 Ski Area is doing to improve our chances of getting through this Covid winter.

Other steps that WE all will be doing is wearing face maskes (which does not include bandanas, neck scarves , plastic face shields, etc), and WE will be wearing our face masks correctly which means over the nose and mouth. It is mandatory that in order to be on the property the masks must be worn indoors, except when eating, in the rental process, when in lift lines, and when boarding ski lifts, and when unable to maintain social distancing. Medical Exemptions are not accepted. Violators will be told to leave and no refunds will be made.

Quite unfortunate that I will not be skiing here this year.

Thank you for your efforts to keep our community safer. I have to confess that I have never skied at Camp 10 ( and I live 18 miles away) but I will check out the slopes this winter

Wonderful and wish more businesses would do the same.

Thank you sir for making these additional efforts. We will be there!

Thank you for being frank and forthcoming with your rules. Your sandbox your rules!! Don't like the rules buy your own sandbox!!❤️

Dallas Seiwert another great business doing great things!

🤣🤣🤣 3 micron 🤣🤣🤣 that kind of stuff is what makes this "pandemic" laughable instead of a serious matter, which it should be

FYI denying medical exceptions is against the law and you can be sued for up to $70k per occurrence.... So good luck with that. 😊

Or, we could all just respect what they’re trying to do, abide by it as guests at their facility, and quit stomping and holding our breath like petulant children.

Stop driving cars to ski areas, now.! You are putting people at risk for car crash deaths. Follow the science.
