Skiing and Snowboarding

Skiing and snowboarding for the whole Tam Family

Located a mere 90 minutes from Boise, Idaho, you’ll find winter fun that feels like it’s a million miles from everyday life. Here, you’ll discover amazing snow, express lifts, plus modern mountain villages, lodging, dining and amenities. Skiers and snowboarders looking for a new mountain pursuit, look no further than Tamarack; your destination for family-friendly terrain for all skill-levels from bunny hills to expert and everything in between. Don’t miss out. Carve out some quality time with folks you care about. Incredible moments like this happen exactly once, that is until the next run anyway.

Happy Trails

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.
