Camp 10 Ski Area in Rhinelander, Wisconsin shared on social media that somebody broke into the ski area and stole thousands of dollars worth of equipment and tools. The theft is a gut punch for any ski area, but especially a small local hill in northern Wisconsin.
The full list of equipment stolen is listed in the Facebook post below.
Notable items include a Ford 391 industrial truck engine and other parts from the area’s grooming machine.
You can see the engine missing in the picture below.
A fundraiser has been organized by locals to compensate the ski area for damages not covered by insurance.
The fundraiser has an initial goal of $4000. You can donate to the cause by clicking this link, or the embedded button below.
Please consider helping if you can. It would be great to see the skiing and snowboarding community band together to help a local ski area in need.
