The Tamarack Municipal Association (“TMA”) Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Levi Johnson will be the new TMA Community Manager. Many of you may know Levi from his work with the Benefited Units at the TMA or even back to 2005 when he first worked for the resort as the Ski Patrol Training Manager or as the Marina Manager for the original Lake Cascade waterfront operation. Levi had an on-going role at Tamarack from 2005 to 2014 and then rejoined the TMA in 2015 as the BU Manager and has an in-depth knowledge of the TMA, homeowner issues, and the overall resort community. Levi has also been the Guest Services Manager at the Shore Lodge in McCall where he worked with detailed budgets, as the manager of the Whitetail Club member services, and oversaw the fleet of vehicles and vessels at the lodge and marina. Levi lives in Donnelly and holds a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration and Recreation from Western State Colorado University, with an emphasis on ski and resort management. This unique blend of past experience at Tamarack, demonstrated leadership, communication skills and proactive attention to detail makes Levi an outstanding selection for the role of TMA Community Manager. Levi will start in this new role when he returns from vacation on April 21st and will be reporting to David Hill, the President of the TMA Board of Directors.

The recruiting process was led by Bev Hellman, Jan Lochtenberg, and Brad Larsen of the TMA Board of Directors and included job postings in over 7 recruiting job sites and publications. The Board received over 15 potential applicants for the position of Community Manager. The interview process included preliminary phone screenings and then in-person interviews with the top candidates. While there were some excellent candidates for the Community Manager position, the board feels confident that Levi will be highly successful in fulfilling the responsibilities of this new position at the TMA.

The Board also wants to recognize the outstanding role that Jan West has played during this interim period since Tim’s departure. Jan has been highly responsive to homeowners and the Board, a stabilizing on-site presence, full of insights and recommendations, and a true professional in her role. Jan will stay on in her Interim role until April 28th, to provide a one-week transition period with Levi, and then will return to her regular position as Security Manager. Mariana Ishida of Replay Resorts has also been fulfilling an interim role of overseeing the finance and administration of the TMA and has done an exceptional job in the transition to the third-party accounting company, DSI; staff transitions; internal communication; and a myriad of other day-to-day tasks required of the TMA. Mariana will be on-site on April 21st to facilitate the on-boarding of Levi in his new role.

Please join the Board in thanking both Jan West and Mariana Ishida for their tremendous help during this interim period and in welcoming Levi Johnson to his new role as Community Manager.

We look forward to this new era at the TMA under Levi’s leadership in our on-going efforts to provide greater transparency, services and value to the Tamarack homeowners.

Check out this recent article from real-estate.usnews.com which ranked Boise, ID as #6 in the nation for best places to live.  Located just 90 miles south of Tamarack Resort, this city is in the middle another boom.  Ready why in the link below.

Real Estate News – Boise, ID

Here are the first two paragraphs from the article:

Boise is a recreationalist’s paradise. If you value the outdoors and time spent among rivers, mountains, canyons, deserts and lakes – and all the activities encapsulated therein – it’s worth a serious look.

Downtown Boise is booming. New construction is all over the area. The Zions Bank building, completed in 2014, is the tallest building in the state and sits at its center. Locally sourced food and drink dominate the summer patio scene. Boise’s residents may spend their days enjoying nature, but they fill their evenings dining on locally sourced cuisine, enjoying an opera performance and sipping delicious cocktails.

Kristen Grove – mother, adventurer & nationally recognized style blogger visited Tamarack Resort a few weeks ago.  I was fortunate to be able to tour her around some our beautiful custom homes.  Here’s a post on her trip and one of the homes she fell in love with!   She calls it a “modern masterpiece” and  I couldn’t agree more.  Click on the link and enjoy her post:  Modern Cabin in Tamarack



Tamarack Resort’s General Manager, Brad Larsen, sneaks in a few sentences in this news piece from Fox News 9 confirming the lifts will be running once again this summer.   The IMBA put in Tamarack’s downhill course in 2006 and it is still the favored downhill area from Boise to McCall.  From easy “green” runs to the challenging “double black diamond” trails, Tamarack offers something for everyone, including the cross country trails through Foothills Park.

More updates on 2/22/16:  Tamarack is excited to announce some improvements for its Bike Park for summer 2016.  For the first time since 2007, Tamarack Resort will offer lift service to bikers, which means you won’t have to pedal up 1,700 vertical feet to experience all the incredible terrain we have to offer! Additionally, we will be refurbishing multiple trails in our already expansive trail system, as well as adding new man-made features. The bike park is projected to open on Saturday, June 25th, and will operate on Saturdays and Sundays through September 4th.
A full season pass for unlimited downhill mountain biking will cost $99 plus tax if purchased before Monday, June 20th. On June 21st, pass rates will increase to $129 plus tax. Both downhill and cross country mountain bikes will be available for rent in the Sports Dome, which is located at the base area of the resort.
