The lodge and the ski center are both great places to visit. The ski center has good rental equipment and excellent instructors. A lesson is a very good idea if you're just starting out. Do not be fooled; cross country skiing is no "softy's" sport. It's an intense, enjoyable workout which gies you access to some beautiful country.

The staff at Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center are the best! They take the time to explain everything - even first-timers like me felt confident to have fun! Their trails are amazing - so well groomed and cared for. Gotta love Tamarack!

A bit crowded and the parking lot is ramshackle but the skiing is beautiful. The seasonal lodge offers rentals

This was my first visit to Tamarack and I will definitely be going back. The views are beautiful, the trails are nicely groomed, there are many trails to choose from, the rental equipment is great and the staff is very friendly. My only (slight) complaint is that I find it a little bit expensive (~$25 per day for a trail... More

We spent two nights here in one of the cabins. Ours, in fact, Cabin 208, was tiny but just perfect for Peggy and me. The main lodge has several rooms with shared baths; we preferred to pay a little more to have the privacy. Tamarack is a beautiful place, here since 1928, on the edge of a lovely lake literally...

Perfectly groomed, extremely nice and helpful staff that works there because they love cross country skiing! The lakes basin is particularly beautiful in the winter and I feel so lucky to be up there every time I go!

Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center is a nice break from the crowds on the downhill slopes. Good equipment rental, well groomed trails. I always try to work in at least one day of cross country while I am on a ski vacation - burns a lot of calories! Which you can put back on at the great Tamarack Lodge restaurant.

Tamarack is a beautiful place that we have enjoyed on several occasions but always in the summer or fall. We decided to try a winter trip for a change and the highlight was a day of Cross Country skiing. We booked the all-inclusive lesson, day pass and rental gear. The gear was in great shape and our instructor Amy was... More

we rented cross-country skis here and tried it out for the first time. We were complete beginners but they have trails that are perfect for learning and the scenery is spectacular. It cost about $55ish for each adult for skis, boots & poles and a nature trail pass during the high holiday season. It was too crowded, the snow in... More
