Skiers and riders can enjoy a 2,800 foot vertical drop, along with topographical features that create rolling cruisers with varying pitches, glades, cornices and steep mogul runs spread out over 900 skiable acres. Tamarack offers 39 runs, designated 15% Beginner, 44% Intermediate, and 41% Advanced. The longest Run spans 2 miles. The ski terrain is served by 6 lifts that includes no less than 2 high-speed quads. While expert skiers and riders head for the south bowls and cornices at the upper mountain, beginners and novices will stay near the base, in the Discovery learning area with a stellar ski school and progressive terrain park. Whatever the ability level, expect bottomless powder, excellent conditions, awesome groomers and wide open runs at each turn.
With the unique Tamarack offers dining options with delicious food and signature gourmet dishes. You’ll find coffee bars, pubs and grills throughout the resort. Morels is an excellent 5-star dining experience with indoor and outdoor seating and a full service bar where guests can kick back at the end of the day. An on site spa provides a convenient oasis and rejuvenation with yoga, facials, massages and body treatments. More dining, shopping and other activities such as the Winter Festival can be found in the charming town of McCall’s, a little more than 20 miles from the resort.
Families seeking to add to their adventure can enjoy more of the outdoors on skate skis or snowshoes in the Lyle Nelson Nordic & Snowshoe Trail system. More than 15 miles of well groomed trails wind through meadows or towering forests with firs, pines, aspens and tamaracks. Families on the snow shoe trails can take their dogs with them. Trails begin in the Sports Dome at the Nordic Center where guests can get everything they need for their day out. Snowmobiling is idyllic in designated areas or in open terrain for adventurers.
Tamarack continues to improve their three terrain parks that range from beginner to advanced – with new hips, rails, boxes and tabletops ranging from 10 – 30 feet.
Located on the skier’s left of the Discover run near the base, the Discovery Terrain Park is for little rippers and new freestyle riders wishing to build their skills. All of the rails are low, and the jumps are smaller than the other parks – the perfect place to test skills and prepare for the No Business and the Homestead.
Looking for rails? Check out the No Business Rail Park on the skier’s left of the pitch down to the base of the Tam Express Chair. This park has been home to a variety of features in the past.
The expanded Homestead Terrain Park has a variety of boxes, rollers, jumps, bonks and flat bars. Continuous improvements are to be expected here with an upper and lower park, longer run, and more features to be added to the Homestead.
Lunch at the Seven Devils Pub is a relaxing experience, so give yourself time to enjoy the great food, service and laid-back environment. The Canoe Grill is also a popular spot to eat during the day. After the last lap, head over to the Morels Lounge for a signature cocktail, you’ll find it inside the Lodge at Osprey Meadows.
