    A couple years of operation before the second bankruptcy?

    I loved Tamarack and Brundage for the 5 years I lived in Boise. I hope something works out there. No people (guess thats part of the problem) and when the snow is good the tracks are fresh all day with lots of fun terrain. Was nice to hike around Wildwood when they removed the lift for even more fresh. With all the people flocking to Boise nowadays it seems like eventually it could be a good investment... but who knows.

    Not for long if their controller and General Manager Brad Larsen act like this:

    Not surprised though, that place has always been douchy, even from the start and multiple failed attempts to get it to even start it's still fumbling.

    Yeah, I want to sit in a shitty bubble with dirty floors and ventilation fans clogged with dust and grease, etc. above the kitchen and be served food. No thanks.

    Tamarack had been receiving unanimous complaints about me from guests

    well, it was unanimous.

    So you are Tarek? I see no other motivation to bump a couple months old threads here otherwise.

    Nope, not Tarek, just sharing Tamarack's douchiness.

    You can tell from his Facebook ramblings that he's the type of person that has problems probably no matter where he goes.

    I'm not sure what the issue is. This guy seems like a clown. His big long facebook rant story seems to be omitting details and not actually explaining anything. There's probably a reason why they don't want him at the hill.

    I was thinking of hitting Tamarack next year after they reinstall Wildwood. We've been to Brundage, which was fun but it's definitely short on steeps (and long on snow quality). Some Brundage regulars told us we should hit Tamarack next time. Worth it?

    That was my feeling too. I love it when people post up shit like this expecting everybody is going to rally around them. Go away.

    Yeah, that rant was way too long and limited on details to say the least.

    It is fun and a nice change from Brundage or Bogus a couple times a season. I wouldn't call Tamarack steep by any means though. Side country can be fun there and easily accessed by a short hike either north or south on the top ridge.

    Nope. Tamarack is boring, that is unless you like to ski flat groomers and have to skate back from the south boundary area uphill back to the lift. There's short little shots and even the upper "bowls" are very short. The mountain was planned by a retard.

    I still think they built the ski area on the wrong part of West Mountain. They should've moved it down the ridge to the south a little ways, but it was a land swap with the state and railroaded through by Dork Kempthorne who owns property near the base of the mountain and had a vested interest in making Tamarack happen with Jean Pierre Bospflug who then "disappeared" after the bubble burst and luckily didn't end up with concrete shoes from the Mexican cartel.

    I hear they have a good golf course if you're into that kind of thing.

    Yeahman, and kindly fuck off. You didn't have to open the thread and comment if you didn't want.

    I'm just pointing out the douchiness of Tamarack on both sides, but their management ain't nothing to give awards to.

    Yes, there's probably two sides to this story, but Tamarack management could have handled it better.

    "probably" ???

    No love lost for Tamarack from what I have read over the years, but when you call them out and then only present one side of the argument from a blogging whiner, well, that's kind of inviting criticism, eh?

    If you open a can of worms like this you need to own it, not criticize others for commenting.

    Anyone want some popcorn? Just made a fresh batch. Is it summer on the ski board already?

    I had a season pass to Tamarack for two years back in 2012-2013. There was never anybody there, and usually some pretty good funky chunky powder up top.

    Sure, the rain at the bottom sucks, but a grand total of 100 skiers on mountain sure is cool.

    How do you pick a fight at Tamarack? Place is like a ghost town.
