A few words on the Snow at Tamarack Resort

Tamarack has no detail snow data, so we estimate 275 inches snowfall based upon the Boise local opinion that Tamarack gets more snow than Brundage. Those same locals note that Tamarack is usually deserted, so powder can last several days after storms. The low visitation led to a bankruptcy reorganization and removal of a chairlift, reducing lift-accessible powder terrain.

Accumulation and Preservation

Tamarack’s early season accumulation should be about average for western destinations. Primary exposure is east, so melt/freeze conditions are likely from late February onwards if it has not snowed recently.
