We help our young participants establish a solid foundation of alpine skiing skills on appropriate terrain and in varying conditions.
The Tamarack Ski Team was established to develop a broad base of Alpine Ski skills in boys and girls ages 5-14 at Tamarack Ski Resort in Tamarack, Idaho. Participants are divided into categories based on age and experience.
Tamarack Ski Team develops these skills with a progressive approach that starts with free skiing and skill development with structured technical gate training, followed by gate training with with brushes, stubbies, and junior slalom gates, followed by skiing bumps, powder, trees, jumps, gates and steeps, and culminating in the opportunity to ski competitively.
Safety is a crucial part of our education. We provide all participants a course in avalanches and require them to wear safety equipments such as hard helmets.
