I was Skiing At Camp 10 as a child the Day The USA beat Russia in Hockey...

Roughly 7 years ago we adopted a policy of moving our early bird season pass sale to March and using the criteria that the March Sale had to cover a major portion of insurance cost in order for us to proceed towards opening for the following winter. The policy worked well until we were hit with a Trifecta of events three winters ago building to this current year: (1) three less than ideal winters weather wise in a row- this past winter, even with records in snowfall, had a very challenging December and January. (2) three winters ago our liability insurance underwriter exited the business and the next available underwriter had a 50% higher premium. (3) a number of strongly supporting families aged out (kids grew up and/or got involved with many competing activities) resulting in our industry leading season pass renewal rate for a five year period reversing itself to an industry lagging position. This March we introduced additional choices to our season pass program: The $149 pass with a lot of special features, the $99 pass with some add on options, and our new $78 Sundays only pass. We have seen a good response in all three categories and kudos to all of you who have renewed or purchased your first time pass....your support has been and is absolutely a key for continuation of the Camp 10 Ski Area.

We have just completed a three year program of significant additions, and equipment refurbishments leading to a big improvement in ski area operational capabilities and guest enhancements : major groomer rebuilding work, significant expansion of our snowmaking machine fleet, adding snowmaking capability to another major run (98% complete), additions to our rental shop, and completion of out ski lodge new roof project.

"Must do" projects for this summer include: completion of the snowmaking expansion to Snowdallion Run , upgrading our power supply from 400KW to 800 KW which enables much more effective use of our snowmaking system, completion of our race timing system so we can resume our junior race program, and significant upgrades in our terrain park set ups.

Success in getting these things done is of course driven by available funds and we will be utilizing a number of different approaches to accomplish the needed funding.

Step One will be the extension of our Spring Season Pass Sale: The three spring options will be extended till April 20th. The $142 pass ($149 with tax) includes full access on all operating days and nights as scheduled, a photo laminated passholder identification pass, indoor storage of skiis/boots, a cafeteria discount, and periodic guest lift ticket discounts. The $99 pass ($104 with tax) covers all lift tickets for the pass purchaser on any Camp 10 Ski Area operating day and nights as scheduled . As an option the $99 pass purchaser may purchase a laminated photo id pass for an additional $15 which enables access to the Pass Perks program. The $78 ($82 with tax) Sundays Pass which covers skiing/snowboarding on any operating Sunday during the ski season - this pass was specifically designed for those individuals who have very committed Saturday schedules.

The Spring Pass Sale is extended until April 20th. Please share this information with your skiing/snowboarding friends .....pass holder purchases will continue to b e the significant and needed involvement for continued success and improvements to our many projects for our winter programs.

A friend recently sent me a Camp 10 Ski Area poster from 1960 showing 1960 prices. A 1960 season pass was $45. According to an online dollar value calculator that same $45 pass would cost $384 in todays dollars. Guess our season pass option of $149 , $ 104, or $82 isnt too bad of a deal ....and back in 1960 Camp 10 Ski Area didnt have a chair lift, the ski runs were shorter, there was no snowmaking....and the GM didnt work as a volunteer.

Now in the sprite of full disclosure we should also mention that in 1960 an adult lift ticket was $3 which, according to the inflation calculator , is $25.62 in todays dollars. But today we have our adult lift ticket priced at $34 which, considering we've added a char lift, snowmaking, etc seems to be where it should be ...and it also happens to be the lowest adult lift ticket at a chair lift equipped ski area in the state (excluding private clubs or taxpayer funded areas). Isnt it great that you have a choice ? Just sayin...

Had a lot of people asking about night skiing this past winter. We are going to take a survey to determine best night. We are going to take a vote by the number of likes. Each night being considered will be posted as a separate night. You will vote for that night by "liking" the post.

The three nights being considered are: Thursday Friday Saturday

The very first vote will be - is night skiing something that appeals ? a "like" is yes no response is no. Comments are welcome but the vote will be based on number of likes as a % of followers.

Ok, we went 24+ hours and 1.65% of the "follows" voted in favor of adding night skiing.....much better to find out now that there isnt much interest. We may still do something but it will have to be a creative approach because we cant just afford to roll the dice and hope enough people would try night skiing/snowboarding. ☚ī¸

Just as dawn broke this morning a major avalanche occurred on our Snowdallion Run. The avalanche went through our parking lot pushing a number of cars loaded with skiers who were anxiously awaiting our opening of the 2019-20 Ski season. The cars were pushed almost to the Wisconsin River and a cadre of 117 brave ski patrollers had tough rescue conditions but we can happily report that seven hundred and twenty skiers were rescued . No fatalities but one tabby cat did have an injured paw. Typically we dont quite have that many cars on the parking lot but some of these folks were also waiting for their opportunity to purchase a season pass for the 2019-20 Ski Season. Have you purchased yours ? We have three options this year : Our $141 Season Pass ($149 with tax) which includes a photo ID pass needed for our fabulous Pass Perks program, inside storage for your boots and skis, cafeteria discount, special guest offerings, and more to be added; The $94 season pass ($99 with tax) that provides the pass holders with lift tickets for all operating periods when they check in at the ticket counter . ; and lastly we have added the new Sundays Only pass for $78 ($81 with tax) - this pass was designed for the folks that have extremely busy Saturday schedules - passholder checks in at the ticket booth on any operating Sunday for their lift ticket. This sale ends in 5 more days. ... See MoreSee Less

Good thing it missed the new high speed lift!

This past ski season we were open December 15 through March 17 and had customers from Georgia, Texas, Alabama, Oregon, California, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and yes we even had some from Wisconsin. We saw some of the biggest weather swings ever, broke the record for snowfall in Wisconsin. We made more early season snow than ever, saw both of our grooming machines finally starting to perform as they should (thanks to a lot of good work by Driverivable Performance), and watched our Ski School teach more lessons than ever before. We also enjoyed having the best employee team that anyone could hope for. And yes we had challenges....the early season wild temperature fluctuation and occasional rains, some of the January and February sub zeros and strong winds, and yes we even had that "black" day with a power problem that knocked out all of our lifts except a rope tow for a good part of the day. The ink has just barely dried on the 2018-19 ski season and we are already into operational planning for 2019-20 which will bring even more good things to the party. We've kicked things off with our initial season pass sale that gives three options - the $149 (tax included) Season Pass which includes inside ski/boot storage, special cafeteria discount, a photo ID pass which enables full use of the Pass Perks program, and special guest discounts, the $99( $104 with tax) season pass which is good on all operating days and provides a lift ticket when checking in at the ticket counter an optional laminated pass may be purchased for $15 but is not required, and our newest $78 ($82 with tax) Sundays Only Season Pass . ...

Our dynamic duo from the ticket sales and equipment rental gig....first to greet you when you entered the lodge. Emilee and Lexi knew absolutely nothing about ski and snowboard rentals including sizing, set ups, and adjustments but wow were they ever quick studies. They did a super job of taking care of our customers and doing all of the technical stuff as if they had been doing it for a number of seasons. Our inside staff of Miah, Emilee, and Lexi kept everything on track and everyone happy...Camp 10 Ski Area has been extremely fortunate in developing an inside team and an outside team that made things hum and my life one heck of a lot easier. ...
