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.
