The long runs are great, but some weren't groomed and the overall feeling was that this place is being managed on a shoestring. The lodge wouldn't let me bring my own food inside - I've not experienced a ski lodge not open to the skiers in general. I wanted to buy a light beer, but none on tap. The bartender... More

Tamarack Resort is always an awesome experience! despite the lack of snow in recent years, the ticket value, the smiling staff, the excellent food options (especially this year), and the terrain parks/lifts/grooming are all fantastic! for all the problems they have encountered over the years they have put so much effort into creating a warm, welcoming, and professional atmosphere one...

We stayed for three nights in July and had a nice stay. It is a smaller resort with, I believe, 57 rooms. The location, views and scenery around the resort at tops. The hotel gym, pool and whirpool areas are also outstanding. The rooms are adequate, with nicely appointed decor, adquate beds and a spacous bathrooms. About half the rooms... More

We have a nearby cabin and have purchased family season passes for the past couple of years and we LOVE the mountain here! My 14, 12, & 8 y/o boys love coming here because the staff is friendly, the area is uncrowned and roomy for beginner skiers. The mountain is roomy for all levels of skiers! I really appreciate the...

Of all the Western Idaho resorts, Tamarack opened first, and had the best snow. While Bogus was a literal rock garden in places towards the end, I didn't hit one rock the entire season at Tam. 2800 ft of vertical, and rarely a crowd. Because there are no waiting in lines, 3 hrs of skiing at Tam is like 9... More

I move to Idaho too late for the 2012 ski season, but I didn't miss 2013! I live 8 miles from Tamarack Ski Resort, and it is where I have spent most of my time this winter. The most spectacular thing about this resort is the view from the top of the mountain! A close second would have to be... More

Had a great day of skiing here on a Saturday in February. No crowds, good snow, beautiful views. What I liked most about skiing in Idaho was that the lift tickets were more than hafl the price of a resort like Vail or Heavenly, with no crowds and good skiing. Tamarack isn't big, but the "trails" (mostly glades) they have... More

I have been sking at many resorts in Idaho, and Tamarack has some of the most beautiful views I've seen. Also not having to wait in line is a wonderful experience and the feeling of having the mountain to yourself is a unique one.

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!
