“Not only is the first phase of the Village Plaza, with retail, lodging and restaurants being completed, but the mountain is getting a generous addition of accessible terrain thanks to new mountain equipment, including a high-speed quad."

Tamarack Resort embarks on a new round of resort improvements beginning Spring 2019. Along with the first phase completion of the Village Plaza, Tamarack is improving mountain terrain and opening up lift-served access to more than 200 acres.

“It will certainly be busy around the mountain this spring,” Tamarack Resort President Jon Reveal said. “Not only is the first phase of the Village Plaza, with retail, lodging and restaurants being completed, but the mountain is getting a generous addition of accessible terrain thanks to new mountain equipment, including a high-speed quad. We’re focused on improving the guest experience from the moment they arrive at the Village through their last run of the day.”

Construction crews will focus on completing the exteriors of the three Phase 1 Village buildings. The construction process has been on hold since 2009. They will simultaneously finish the first phase of retail, dining and guest service spaces in time for the 2019/2020 winter season.

This summer, Tamarack will install a high-speed, detachable, 4-person chairlift to service the Wildwood trails, which haven’t been skiable by lift since 2009. This lift will provide access to the resort’s most consistently pitched intermediate and expert trails along with gladed tree skiing. Along with the new ski lift, Tamarack will expand its grooming fleet with the addition of two vehicles. A new groomer equipped with a winch has the ability to groom Tamarack’s summit cornice and other steep terrain. Offering guests more skiable terrain is a high priority. Tamarack’s summer maintenance team will be clearing brush and removing undergrowth to reduce fire danger. This will provide a more skiable snow surface for skiers and boarders next winter.

All of these improvements have the entire Tam Fam excited for next year’s ski season.
