Tamarack Resort Opens New High-Speed Wildwood Chairlift
New lift part of numerous investments happening at the destination resort
TAMARACK, Idaho (December 28, 2019) – With the buzz of a chainsaw, Tamarack Resort today opened its new high-speed quad chairlift Wildwood Express. Hundreds of skiers and riders waving cowbells gathered to celebrate and be among the first to ride the lift.
Slope Surfaces Manager Jeremy Leslie led a team this summer improving the Wildwood terrain and had the honor of officially opening the lift by wielding a chainsaw to cut a branch in a truly Tamarack ‘ribbon cutting’.
“This is not only a celebration of the grand opening of Wildwood, it’s a celebration of all of our guests and homeowners who’ve been on the journey with us to deliver on the promise of Tamarack,” said Tamarack President Jon
Reveal. “Expanding our lift-served terrain, improving our guest services and amenities, and working towards completion of the ski-in, ski out Village at Tamarack are all key to making this the great destination resort it is envisioned to be.”
With the opening of Wildwood Express, guests now have lift-served access to 200 additional acres of the resort’s most consistently pitched intermediate and expert trails along with gladed tree skiing.
