Tamarack is the name of a four-season resort located in Long Valley of west-central Idaho. However, the resort closed to the public on Wednesday, March 4, 2009. They do retain a small staff in order to maintain the facilities. The Osprey Meadows Golf Course & the Zipline Tour has since reopened and other changes may be coming in the future. Tamarack has had a rocky past. The idea for the resort was first conceived as Valbois in the early 1980s, but it struggled to overcome federal regulatory hurdles and fierce local opposition, and finally folded in 1995. Three years later a new group of investors revived the project, despite local opposition, with modifications and called it WestRock. After four years the name was changed to Tamarack. Construction at the Tamarack Resort began in 2003, and skiing was available only by snowcat the first year. The alpine ski area officially opened with chairlift service the following year in December 2004. Tamarack Resort is located on the west shore of Cascade Reservoir, southwest of Donnelly and about 90 miles north of Boise.
