On Monday, Tamarack Resort in Idaho announced that they will reopen the Wildwood trail complex to skier and snowboarders as “hike-to” only terrain. The zone, which is located just beyond the northern boundary line, adds over 100 acres of new terrain to the Tamarack’s current terrain offerings.

In a recent press release general manager of Tamarack, Brad Larsen stated, “The Wildwood trails have been untouched by skiers and riders for nearly six years. Reopening this terrain to guests willing to take the short hike and ‘earn their turns’ is a great way to create a new ski experience that is unique to Tamarack.”

The move to include Wildwood as hike-to-terrain comes on the heels of Replay Resorts taking control of operations at the Idaho ski area. The resort group, who specialize in breathing life back into stale, usually smaller ski areas are hoping the new terrain will draw the backcountry crowd to Tamarack’s slopes. The new terrain will also give the southern backcountry access a break from resort skiers.

However… “Unlike the out-of-bounds area, the new Wildwood terrain is within Tamarack’s permitted resort boundary and will be monitored by Tamarack’s professional ski patrol. The new terrain does not have snowmaking and will open when natural snow conditions allow.”- Tamarack Resort Press Release

The last time the terrain was open was 2009 and local skiers and riders are stoked at the prospect of avalanche control in the prized area. The hiking time is an estimated 5 minutes to the pinnacle of Wildwood bowl and skiers will be able to ski back to the lifts
