Get Your Season Pass & Bragging Rights

Grab your gear and head up to Tamarack Resort on Saturday, November 14, for a one-day sneak peek! Favorable weather conditions blanketed the resort with 15 inches of the white stuff this week. Plus, Tamarack is the closest resort to the Treasure Valley with snowmaking. Those two forces combined to give Tamarack the opportunity to offer an early season preview. This special opening will mark the earliest date Tamarack Resort has ever offered skiing to the public, and makes Tamarack the first resort to offer skiing in Idaho for the 2015-16 season!

The Discovery Chair will be turning from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. on Saturday, November 14, allowing guests to make some turns on our beginner hill. To ensure our mountain is in the best shape it can be in for our official opening day on December 11, the beginner hill will be the only terrain open for this early season event. While we won’t be offering the big mountain experience quite yet, we’re building out some terrain park features into the beginner terrain to keep our more experienced skiers and riders challenged. Season pass holders ski free on Saturday, while regular tickets for the day will be just $10, and children under 6 ski free.

Saturday is a great opportunity to come to the resort and pick up or purchase your season pass. Monday, November 16 is the very last day to purchase your season pass at a discounted rate. Plus, you’ll have bragging rights for skiing two weeks before Thanksgiving!

The resort will have limited services this Saturday, and Canoe Grill will be offering a small menu including burgers and beverages. Retail and rental offerings will be very minimal, and no ski school lessons will be offered.

If you plan to visit, be prepared for a few lines at the ticket windows and the lift. But don’t worry, we’ll have some complimentary coffee and cider ready for those who arrive in the morning… and a bustling patio with music for those who stay late.

Tamarack Resort’s official opening day of the 2015-16 season is scheduled for Friday, December 11, at which point the resort will turn lifts 7-days-a-week from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. Ski School, rental, retail and dining services will all be offered in full once the resort officially opens in December.


Just released letter to all Tamarack homeowners on November 5th at 11:15am:


Dear Homeowner,

Since taking over the day-to-day responsibilities of Tamarack Resort operations on May 1, Replay Resorts has focused on improving all parts of the guest experience.  We worked to reopen our mountain bike park, establish the waterfront cabana and partnered to bring a 2-day music festival to the resort.
This fall, our commitment continued with expansion of our snowmaking system, advanced terrain improvements, completion of the Trillium neighborhood, reopening of the Wildwood trail system, and investment in a wireless ticketing system.
The guest experience, both on and off the hill, is critically important to us.  Being able to manage the guest experience in all lines of business is a key element to the success of the resort.  Knowing this, our team has resumed management of food and beverage operations of the resort to ensure improved service levels and expanded operations for years to come.
Today, we are proud to announce our next service addition; the creation of Tamarack Lodging Co., the official rental management company of Tamarack Resort. 
It is the resort’s intention to harness the power of the Tamarack brand and create a seamless marketing approach, vacation rental booking process, and on-site experience for guests and owners.  Operating key pieces of the vacation product – from reservation to check-in, including mountain activities and food & beverage operations – Replay Resorts is poised to take Tamarack to new levels of occupancy and animation.
Tamarack Lodging Co. will assume operations of the front desk of the Lodge at Osprey Meadows on May 15, 2016.  We are accepting new properties into our rental program immediately.  Reservations for the summer of 2016 (May 15, 2016) and beyond will begin on February 1, 2016.
The day-to-day operations of the lodging division will be the responsibility of Chris Wisocki who is the Director of Hospitality. Additionally, I will work with Chris to personally lead the assimilation of new properties into Tamarack Lodging Co.’s rental program.
Details on the advantages of joining Tamarack Lodging Co.’s program can be found here. Plus, I am available to answer questions about the new lodging division at and 208-325-1020.
Thank you for your continued support of the resort.  Here’s to a very bright future!
Best Regards,
Brad Larsen
General Manager

Good news for the TMA regarding the judge’s ruling on the golf course litigation.  Summary below provided by the Tamarack Municipal Association on October 2, 2015:

Bryant/RSPT vs TMA

On August 4, 2015, the court heard arguments on summary judgment motions. Summary judgment means that the facts are so clear that the judge can decide parts of the case on briefs and affidavits without a trial.

The decision in Bryant/RSPT vs TMA was issued by Judge Winmill on September 30, 2015, on the pending motions.

In summary, TMA prevailed on most issues, and even on the issues where TMA was not given summary judgment in its favor, TMA is in a better position if the matter proceeds to trial. Significantly, TMA is not liable for the approximately $700,000 in annual rent. TMA is not liable for WMG’s property taxes. TMA may be able to prove to a jury that Bryant was enriched by TMA’s stewardship of the golf course. TMA may be able to convince a jury to award Municipal Assessments for some periods when TMA was not a WMG tenant.

Bryant/RSPT made three claims in the complaint. Count 1 was for breach of the holdover lease that charged TMA over $700,000 a year. Bryant moved for judgment in favor of this count. That motion was denied. TMA moved to dismiss this count. TMA’s motion on this count was granted, the court finding that RSPT and Bryant had no legal basis for creating a holdover lease. TMA does not owe rent from the time Bryant allegedly imposed a holdover lease.

Count 2 was for breach of the lease between TMA and WMG, which Bryant alleged she was entitled to enforce based on her allegation that the lease required TMA to pay property taxes. Bryant moved for summary judgment in her favor on this count, and it was denied. TMA moved to have this count dismissed, and TMA’s motion was granted, the court finding that the lease did not require TMA to pay property taxes and TMA did not breach the lease it had with WMG. TMA therefore is not required to reimburse Bryant for WMG’s property taxes.

Count 3 is Bryant/RSPT’s claim for unjust enrichment. Bryant moved for summary judgment in her favor on this count, and this motion was denied. TMA moved to dismiss Count 3, and TMA’s motion was also denied, meaning that the facts needed to reach a decision are not clear enough for a disposition without a jury trial. Accordingly, Count 3 will proceed to a jury trial, unless settled. The court limited Bryant’s unjust enrichment claim to the period after Bryant terminated the leases – after November 1, 2014.

TMA counterclaimed for unjust enrichment on grounds that RSPT enjoyed the fruits of TMA’s stewardship, including TMA’s $48,000/year support for LOMA since 2009. Bryant moved to dismiss TMA’s unjust enrichment claim, and the court denied this motion. TMA’s claim for unjust enrichment will proceed to trial unless settled.

TMA’s second counterclaim was for unpaid municipal assessments, on grounds that Bryant is WMG’s assign and therefore liable for WMG’s unpaid assessments for any WMG properties during times when TMA was not a tenant. Bryant moved to dismiss this counterclaim, and this motion was also denied, and unless settled, this claim will also proceed to trial.

Bryant also asked the court to extend the time for obtaining an expert to provide testimony about the market value of TMA’s lease, and the Judge denied RSPT’s request to obtain its own valuation expert.
