Discovery:

The Frank Church Wilderness, largest in the lower 48 states, opens eastward from the very doorstep of Tamarack. A varied guide and outfitters community offers a variety of amenities such as rafting, world-class kayaking and multi-day hikes in the best of class. The Salmon and Payette Rivers offer some of the best fishing in the country. Hunting is diverse and particularly well managed thanks to the great expanse of lands. Access to the wilderness is conveniently available from McCall by air.

Activities directly available at the resort will be alpine skiing, nordic skiing, snow mobiling, golfing, biking, hiking, lake kayaking, sailing, fishing, water skiing and tennis.

Trail design offers a variety of terrain, from steep moguled runs to long cruising runs - from terrain parks and powder bowls at the upper mountain to the comfortable learning area at the mountain base. The topographic features of the mountain create rolling trails with short stretches of flat terrain followed by steeper pitches - a popular condition to a wide range of skier ability.

Jump Park

Tamarack Resort opened its new Jump Park September 18th with a demonstration event called the "Tamarack Expressions Session," featuring five of the nation's top mountain bike big air specialists performing a wide array of aerial stunts, including back flips.

The Lake

There is a striking natural convergence at Tamarack of sweeping mountain, majestic forest, lush valley with natural wetlands and Lake Cascade. A multitude of lake activities exist and with a joint agreement established with Idaho Parks and the Bureau of Reclamation, the lake shore in front of the resort will be developed into public day use with trails and water activities.

Lake Cascade directly accessible from Tamarack and is suitable for swimming, fishing and a variety of boating activities. There are also numerous trails already available, including IMBA signature mountain biking trails and interpretive nature trails for hikers.

Trails

An extensive, multi-user trail system has been incorporated into the Tamarack master plan. Central to the trail network is a paved, multi-use trail that extends from the north village area to the southern extent of the property and is designed for roller-blading, casual biking and sleigh rides in winter. This main trail is complemented by a series of diverse unpaved trails for hiking, jogging and cross-country skiing. The trail network creates a pedestrian connection between all resort facilities as well as the lake shore and National Forest System land outside of the resort boundary. In addition to serving as an access corridor connection to the multitude of resort amenities, the trail system itself forms one of Tamarack’s strongest attractions. It will encourage pedestrian activity during all four seasons, which will enhance and reinforce the sense of community throughout the resort.

Snowmobile

Snowmobile enthusiasts will have access to over 500 miles of established, groomed trails on National Forest Land in the back country of Tamarack. A garage on the mountain is being provided to snowmobilers so that they may store their sleds and avoid interference with non-motorized users.
