You know sometimes we feel like we are pushing a snowball uphill when it comes to winning local support (and we do have a number of great local supporters) Latest example- we just read a posting that Nicolett College is providing an adult Learn to Ski Program at a MICHIGAN ski area....great, the interested never before skier pays a higher price, drives 180 miles round trip while we pay property taxes to help support Nicolett College. We have ski instructors that have gone through PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) training, can provide lower prices, and we are about 170 miles less driving ....and on top of that we have even provided guest speaking appearances to the local College in their Welding Program....to be excluded because we couldn't be competitive or provide the service is one thing ...to not even be asked is disgraceful. This is not a jab at the involved Michigan ski area which is one of our Pass Perks partners but it is a intended as a poke in the eye to all of the local entities that claim we need more recreational opportunities for the youth and families of the communities and then totally ignore what is here....this is the kind of thing that after 40 years of working free to keep a community ski hill going makes me want to puke! ...

Hi Gren - Terry Rutlin here from Nicolet College. I run the Outdoor Adventure program at the college and we would be happy to work with you in the future. Will be in touch.
Nicolet College is the most community oriented group around right now. Must have been an oversight. Reach out to them privately and let them know what you have to offer.
UGH - we went to a place in Penn that had a 'silver skiers' program that I was going to give as an idea for you. BUY LOCAL!!!!!!!
This is frustrating to hear and we totally understand your feelings. It is imperative to have recreational opportunities for the residents of Northern Wisconsin and we hope to be able to bring our family for a ski lesson this year.
We are from portage county. Camp 10 always makes us smile. We do promote Standing Rocks our county ski. Disc golf. Running and biking course. Dog park. All supported by tax dollars. Gren and staff we have witnessed the Energizer Bunny in all of you at Camp 10. I hope the skiers who learned skiing in upper Michigan take the smart trip to Camp 10 for a local afternoon of fun. Your season pass and pass PERKS is our best winter value. Thanks for being concerned for Whitecap. You all have a kind snowloving season.
As a former employee (of 18 years) I have lost so much respect for Nicolet College. And here is another example!
I 100% hands-down agree with this post.
It does really suck that schools never support this local hill and choose out of state or far away locations when they have a hidden gem in there back yard!
I took my grandchildren to camp 10 and that's where they learn to ski with some help from the people that work there they did an absolutely incredible job let's keep everything local

We're hearing reports that one of our Pass Perks sister ski areas, Whitecap, has had a major fire in their ski lodge....this has got to be devastating to the new owners,management, and staff who have put a tremendous amount of work and efforts into the upgrading and rejuvenation of this ski area. We do not have details but we think that the management team will able to come up with some creative approaches to ensure that skiing is still available for their customers ....our thoughts are with you Whitecap and wishing you the best in this tough situation. ...

Very nice post!
So sorry to see this last night. Tragic. Especially so if someone bought this from the bank. Or was this new group people who were managing it for the bank? Regardless, a good insurance policy will cover their lost income and build them a great new lodge. Hope all goes smoothly for them.
Wimi the storm Facebook has lots of pictures and more coverage also
Sorry for the loss. Shows great heart and dedication to find creative to be open today
So sad. Hopefully no one was hurt
Total loss of the main lodge.

Thanks to all of you who chose to make Camp 10 Ski Area part of your Christmas Holiday period. This was certainly a challenging one with a 24 hour rain and being closed for two days during the holiday ....But thanks to all of you who visited this was the best holiday period we've had in the last 5 years. We thank our customers, we thank our ski patrol, and we thank our great staff, many of whom are brand new to us this year, for providing the best service they could to our customers. Wishing all of you a very happy, healthy, New Year on this special day which we can all share together as the first day of the rest of our lives....come ski or snowboard again with us soon. ...
