Idaho offers dozens of skiing options – from humble two-lift hills to sprawling mountains full of powder-chasers. Within the last decade, Idaho skiing has become a national destination for eager skiers and snowboarders alike. Idaho’s predominance as a winter sport haven is not only a result of its vast geography and ideal climate, but also the quality of ski resorts offering fantastic ski runs and terrain parks – most notably, Tamarack Resort. Tamarack Resort merges premiere ski runs with a spirit of adventure. From downhill skiing to snowshoeing, a winter getaway at Tamarack Resort will never disappoint.
Tamarack Resort boasts seven lifts, annual snowfall of around 300 inches, three terrain parks, fifty runs, 1,100 acres of terrain, and runs for every skill level. A major draw to Tamarack Resort is the untouched powder and open mountain skiing. While most ski resorts offer conventional runs, Tamarack Resort fosters the magic of adventure. An experienced skier is sure to find untouched powder and create a path of their own. Three of the seven lifts are high-speed quads, a convenient amenity when hitting fan-favorite runs, such as Serenity, Showtime, and Upper Bliss.
In addition to skiing, Tamarack Resort offers the best Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking in Idaho. Enjoy paths through serene meadows, surrounded by enchanting winter scenery.
Tamarack Resort also includes a winter sports school, staffed by certified instructors – perfect for introducing children to the sport or helping fine-tune the skills of more experienced skiers. The resort also includes a gear rental shop and tune-up center.
Tamarack has five eating establishments, from coffee to cantina, to satisfy its guests. After a tiring day on the slopes, a warm meal at the Mountain Bites Food Truck is sure to do the trick. Enjoy locally roasted coffee from Clearwater Coffee or head to the Village Market for groceries.
After a long day on the slopes, Tamarack Resort boasts several charming lodging options. The Lodge at Osprey Meadows fosters a cottage-like feel, especially when surrounded by views of the snowy landscape and frozen waters of Lake Cascade. For those interested in a larger and more private option, there are several cottages, chalets, and townhouses throughout.
Tamarack Resort is not simply a ski resort, it is a winter adventure. Among the highly-reviewed ski slopes, lies a sense of discovery. While skiing down Enigma, a popular intermediate run, one cannot help but feel connected to the snow laden Earth. While Idaho’s many ski resorts offer hills and lifts, Tamarack takes it to the next level. Staying, eating, and – of course – skiing at Tamarack Resort is an experience. An experience that will surely spark wonder, inspire awe, and provide endless adventure.
