Skiing at Tamarack

Tamarack opened again after years of being closed. The mountain was as great as I remember. The slopes felt empty and the powder was plentiful. I was there during Christmas and was pleased with the skiing. The mountain had limited operations and was only open from Thur-Sun, except for the holidays when they were open all week.

I hope the Tamarack has another year and makes it through the buy-out. It has the potential of being a wonderful resort. Until then, it is a great place to visit when visiting Idaho.

During the summer months, enjoy playing on the water at reservoir.

The town of Donnelly has a wonderful bakery and coffee shop on their main drag. McCall is just down the road to the north and Cascade to the South.
