Tamarack Ski Area might open in 2010

With the Idaho ski season just around the corner, the saga of the Tamarack Ski Resort on Lake Cascade continues. It's possible Tamarack could open for skiing this December 20th, 2010. They just need investors and some operating capital. It's sad a ski area with such great potential has so many problems. Read the latest news about Tamarack at these 4 links:

Ticket Prices - Adult High Season Rates
Affordable skiing in Idaho isn't hard to find but lift tickets at some resorts are approaching the $100 level. As a matter of fact, some ski resort are trying to mask the price of their tickets. I searched some of the most famous ski resort website and a few of them make it difficult to find the price.

Graph of Lift Ticket Prices

As you can see there is a big difference between the price of ski area lift tickets. At least you have price options.

Ski Area Lift Ticket Price
Brundage Mountain $55.00
Bogus Basin Mountain $48.00
Sun Valley Resort $85.00
Soldier Mountain $36.00
Jackson Hole, Wyoming $94.00


Get You in the Mood Video
The YouTube Video below was taken during the epic 2005 ski season in Europe. Nothing too extreme....just some great scenery with very deep powder skiing.

    The real problem with Tamarack Resort is that it was dependent on the realestate market to be successful.
    And when the market bottomed out, it killed the resort. Honestly I think if it werent for the activities of the developer and probably worse, one of their real estate agents, the resort would still be successful. When the word got out about agent Stephanie Greenfield stealing customer's earnest money checks and leaving town, that scared away future buyers. Everything is in such shambles now. The developer is a fugative, and Stephanie Greenfield is gone too. The victims of her crime are left holding the bag.

    What is this about? This is Stephanie Greenfield and I'm sorry but I think you have made false accusations. I am not hiding silly and I've never stole a thing in my life. Get your facts straight before you feet yourself in trouble.

    By the way, who are you? Your silly! Very dramatic, you should start writing fiction for Hollywood... It will make you a lot more money and maybe some fans!
