“Fresh Tracks”
Review of Tamarack Resort

Tamarack Resort
Reviewed 27 June 2012

I've got to hand it to the home owners association who have kept Tamarack open these past few seasons. It has a great family feel and awesome powder. Go Thursday's for fresh tracks!

We rented a cottage for a few days through VRBO.com. Our cottage was great and it was in an area with several other cottages and townhomes. Apparently this is the quiet time of year because we were the ONLY people there on our street. At night you feel really alone. However, it is really pretty up there. It was about 60 degrees but the snow was still pretty deep on the ground. There was a great view of the mountains from our front door and it was pretty to drive around Lake Cascade to get to the resort. We drove to the main part of the resort and saw no cars at all. There wasn't even a bar or restaurant open! There are a lot of unfinished buildings around the resort. If you want to see any sort of civilization, you need to make the 20 minute drive to McCall. Maybe it's busier during the ski season but it was dead when we were there.

On a day trip up from Boise, skiing with my 13 year old son. Great mountain with lots of varied terrain, pretty much stayed on the Tamarack and Summit Express chairs, 4+ inches of new snow and no crowds. Kept finding little stashes of untracked powder. Easy drive from Boise, under 2 hours, good parking close to lifts. Nice little Apres Ski spot at the base. All in all had a great time. Got discount lift tickets on Liftopia.com.

Skied Tamarack on Feb 12th, pulled up in the parking lot at 8:50 (10" before lifts start) to find FIVE other cars!!!! Had a $39 ticket from Liftopia (reg rate only $49) and headed to 1st chair. Tamarack was built in 2005, the 1st new ski area built in North America in like 20 years. Plans were big & started well, but the economic crasn brought things to a halt. The area still operates on a limited basis, Thursdays thru Sundays and with basically 2 high speed quad chairs. But these 2 chairs give you 2800 vertical feet of very fun terrain. The snow was the best I saw in Idaho that week and having a ski area almost totally to yourself is a lot of fun! The runs have lots of character with dips and rolls and turns, and they are a blast to make long sweeping high speed GS turns on. They also have some decent advanced runs & probably good tree skiing when there is more snow. This place has great potential when the economy comes back, but give them a lift now too. They will appreciate it, and you will have a ball!!

It was an interesting day on the hill. No real new snow. Icy spots, wind blowing so hard on top the lift that is was closed down for a couple of hours. But the good there was still powder shots in the trees and as usual no lift lines at all.
