Skier and snowboarders of all skill levels will find plenty of runs that fit their ideal for winter fun. From grommets to grandmas, there’s a place for every type of skier and snowboarder. There are trails for beginners and intermediates, for the steep and deep, backcountry crowd, and three terrain parks. If your comfort zone is a bit wider than most, grind the rails. Two planks or one, Tamarack offers family-friendly terrain for the skiing and snowboarding crowd alike.
Give yourself a lift
Your time to explore the mountain is short, so any time waiting in a lift line cuts into your skiing and snowboarding. After all, getting away from gridlock is the reason for getting out of town. With seven, modern lifts located strategically across the mountain, lift lines are usually short. High-speed quads give you just enough time to catch your breath and give those burning quads a break before you go ripping (or gently turning) back down the hill. With so much space, it might feel like you have the slopes all to yourself.
The sweet spot for snow
There’s nothing like the sheer delight of smiling from ear-to-ear as you float through champagne powder. Tamarack gets over 300 inches in annual snowfall, plus a nudge from state-of-the-art snowmaking machines to boot. Being situated on the shores of Lake Cascade doesn’t hurt either. That cold air coming off the shores combines with warm air wafting over the mountain, bringing plenty of that essential ingredient for your gravity-assisted winter fun, crystal light snow.
