During Spring Break, kids pay their age between Sunday, March 20th, and Friday, March 25th at Tamarack Resort, Idaho. Kids aged 7-17 pay their age for a lift ticket when paying with an adult, and kids six and under always ski for free.

With the “Kids Pay Their Age” initiative Tamarack wants to encourage families to enjoy the mountains together over the spring break. The resort caters to all abilities of skiers and snowboarders from beginner to expert, and there are also plenty of other activities on offer.

The pristine resort Tamarack is tucked away in the Idaho mountains 90 miles north of Boise on 3,500 acres. The resort has a summit elevation of 7,700-feet and a vertical drop of 2,800-feet. The resort has 1,100 acres of lift-accessible terrain, 50 runs, seven lifts, and an average of 300″ of snowfall annually.

Springtime is the best time to get kids into skiing and snowboarding as the weather is generally more friendly, making it easier for kids to enjoy the whole experience.

This resort is family-friendly, with plenty of activities for the whole family on and off the snow. From great places to eat, retail outlets, daycare, and even a luxury spa.

Places to stay

Tamarack has plenty of accommodation options to embrace the resort lifestyle with ski-in/ski-out residences. The options range from studios to penthouse suites, or if lodge-style is more your style, then Osprey Meadows has all you could need and more in a place to stay for a fantastic holiday. Osprey Meadows features a large outdoor pool, hot tub, fitness center, sauna, and spa.

Or, if the family wants a bit more privacy and to be nestled in the mountains, there are cabins tucked away in the woods throughout the resort. These range from two-bedroom cottages to expansive estate homes.

Time for a memorable spring break

Tamarack has an off-the-beaten-path feel and is a bit of a well-kept secret. Compared to other bigger resorts, there are much smaller crowds and more of a pristine wilderness feel, making it a great place to have some spring break fun with the whole family.
