NW CUP. OPENING WEEKEND. GO BIG.

Spectators are invited to experience the race up close and personal for free!

DONNELLY, Idaho (June 13, 2019) – Starting on June 14 through June 16, the NW Cup and the Pro Mountain Bike Gravity Tour (Pro GRT) will be taking place at Tamarack Bike Park at the Tamarack Resort. The NW Cup is known as the largest downhill mountain bike series in the nation and guaranteed to be a thrill for racers and spectators alike.

“In the last two years Tamarack Bike Park has quickly become one of the favorites amongst the NW Cup community, not only for the fun and challenging race tracks the mountain provides, but also the broad scope of activities the Resort and this beautiful part of Idaho has to offer,” says Casey Northern, NW Cup Series event director. “Tamarack Bike Park is one of newest additions to the NW Cup Series, and in that short time it has been very exciting to see the re-birth of the Resort. The potential of the Bike Park and the Resort has the future looking very bright!”

Though the bike park will be open to the public on Friday and Saturday, it will be closed exclusively for racers on Sunday, June 16 and open for spectating only. The best downhill racers will compete for the title on some of Tamarack’s intense trails. 

Spectators will have front row access to all stages of the race. While its free to attend the event, there is an option to either walk up the mountain to the start of the race or purchase a $15 lift pass and ride the lift to the start. Racing fans can also walk about 400 vertical feet up the mountain to see a line of jumps where racers will really fly.

TAMARACK BIKE PARK OVERVIEW

2017 Best Bike Parks Riders Choice Awards Third Place - Tamarack Bike ParkTamarack Bike Park is a two-time MTBparks Riders’ Choice Awards Best Bike Park Top 5 Winner for the Northwest Region.

Tamarack Bike Park recently reopened after a nine-year hiatus, returning lift-accessed mountain biking to the area.

The resort is committed to making downhill mountain biking a priority at Tamarack and ensuring there’s something for everyone.

RIDERS’ GUIDE TO TAMARACK BIKE PARK

Tamarack Bike Park | MTBparks.com

The terrain is unique at Tamarack with multiple rock slabs and natural drops, giving riders something they don’t often experience in the Intermountain West. For beginners looking for a long gentle descent back to the base, the Pura Vida trail provides smooth, rolling terrain and entry-level features, as well as some stunning views of Lake Cascade.

For those looking for a more challenging run, the Rock Star trail throws some steep and rocky chutes at riders, with a couple of natural rock doubles and smooth rock rolls. This trail merges at the midpoint of the mountain with three options, Stage Fright, Exit Stage Right, and Super G. Stage Fright consists of an extremely steep run into a large natural rock drop, directly beneath the lift, hence the name. Exit Stage Right removes the audience, but is just as technical.

The recent addition of the jump trail Super G offers some man-made perfection to the mostly natural bike park. It provides a top-to-bottom run chock full of table tops and berms for riders to enjoy. More flow and jump trails are in the works as the resort is working to make a number of improvements.

Other favorites in the Tamarack Park include Hibernator—an expert trail with some wooden features and steep rock sections, and Hockey Mom, which is an intermediate trail that is super flowy and fun for a wide range of riders.

The bike park at Tamarack Resort is serviced by the Tamarack Express chairlift, which takes riders from the base area to mid-mountain. From there, riders will have access to more than 20 miles of trail and 1,700 vertical feet of incredible terrain that ranges from beginner to advanced.

WHAT’S NEW AT TAMARACK BIKE PARK

This July, Tamarack will be hosting stop #4 of the Pro GRT Tour, which is also NW Cup race. As a result, Tamarack has freshened up all of their rowdiest trails, and even cut in a few new trail connectors.

Les Mer De Fleurs is a new green trail connecting Pura Vida to Super G. This trail winds through the woods and offers a high-speed option for those who want to skip the top turns of Super G.

The most popular trail at Tamarack, Super G, is in the process of a total makeover with rebuilt high and wide berms.

2018 EVENTS

NW CUP/PRO GRT #4 | July 27th -29th
Stop number four on the USA Cycling Pro Gravity Tour comes to Tamarack Resort for the first time. Racers will face a challenging and technical course unique to Central Idaho. The event will be held under the UCI C3 categorization, offering pro racers a chance to pick up valuable UCI points.

The shores of Lake Cascade border the base of the resort, providing a large array of water sports to riders and guests onsite. Canoe, kayak, and SUP rentals are plentiful for those looking to try out something new and enjoy the water on their expedition.

Dear Tam Fam Community,
Your help is needed.  The proposed Waterways Ordinance 19-05 would be devastating to our four season resort.
The Valley County Board of Commissioners will hold public hearings on the proposed Valley county Waterways Ordinance 19-05 on April 22nd and April 23rd. Both meetings are at 6:00pm.  Details regarding the meetings are provided by clicking the link to Ordinance 19-05 below.  If you are able to make it in person it would be super valuable.
The proposed ordinance has many new rules impacting Lake Cascade.  The highlighted list of proposed rules below will impact the north end of the Lake and change the way many of you enjoy Lake Cascade.
 1)      No wake zone in the Willow Creek Area. It is unlawful for any person to operate a vessel on the Willow Creek area leading into SISCRA off the Boulder Creek Arm in such a manner as to create a wake.
2)      No wake zone in the Boulder Creek Arm: It is unlawful for any person to operate a vessel on the Boulder Creek Arm commencing at the mouth and North in such a manner as to create a wake.
3)      Lake Cascade would be considered “No Wake” during night time hours.
4)      A boat creating a wake larger than 24 inches must be 1,000 feet from the shoreline. This means wake-surfing and wake-boarding would be banned in all areas outside of the highlighted portion on the map below.
I have also linked this Wave Energy Executive Summary from the Water Sports Industry Association summarizing a study done on wake-sport waves and their potential impact on the shorelines. This study indicates the proposed no wake zone 1,000 feet from shoreline (#4 above) is excessive and likely unwarranted.
Your TMA Board encourages you to write to the Commissioners, show up to the public hearings and sign the petition below.
Please send your comments to Gordon L. Cruickshank Chairman of the Valley County Commissioner Board. gcruickshank@co.valley.id.us
Please consider signing this Opposition to Proposed Valley County Waterways Ordinance 19-05

TAMARACK CLOSES OUT STELLAR SEASON MARCH 30-31
WITH STATE OF IDAHO POND SKIMMING CHAMPIONSHIP

4th Annual State of Idaho Pond Skimming Championship

DONNELLY, Idaho (March 26, 2019) — After a winter that brought record-breaking snowfall in February, Tamarack Resort is closing out the season this weekend with the State of Idaho Pond Skimming Championship.

One hundred brave skiers and riders will get their chance to huck it through frosty waters at the third annual pond skimming competition on Saturday, March 30. Competitors will be judged on four criteria:

Style: How steezy, easy, or tricky you make it look

  1. Outfit: The retro-est onesies, tutus, superhero outfits, wetsuits, prom dresses, etc.
  2. Cross: If you cross the pond the first time, you’ve got to go again with less runway.
  3. Wipe-out: Biggest splash, hardest hit or largest waves

Prizes will be given out for the gnarliest wipe-out, the best outfit and to the overall winner, who walks away with the coveted, 5-foot-tall trophy.

Registration is open between 9:30 am and 11 am on the Canoe Grill Patio. The competition begins at noon. For more information, visithttps://tamarackidaho.com/event/state-idaho-pond-skimming-championship

Village construction has begun and crews plan to complete the exteriors of three Village buildings and simultaneously finish the first phase of retail, dining and guest service spaces in time for the 2019/2020 winter season.

As soon as the snowpack allows, the resort will also install a high-speed, detachable, quad chairlift to service the Wildwood trails, which haven’t been skiable by lift since 2009.

Summer season activities in the meadow and mountain – hiking, ziplining and mountain biking, to name a few – are anticipated to begin by mid-June, weather-dependent. Lake Cascade recreation is expected to begin at the same time. Guided Tamarack Rafting trips on the Payette River are projected to begin May 23, 2019.
