Tamarack Resort Adds Bike Park Tracks for All Riders
Tamarack Resort is ready to show you a fun and wild ride. The resort is about 90 miles north of Boise in Donnelly, Idaho. Tamarack resort is making their outdoors even better by adding two new additions to its renowned bike park. Now it also features a pump track and jump park. This is perfect because it opens up the track to all levels of riders. The pump track has a circuit of rollers, banked turns and other features designed to ridden by “pumping” (up-and-down body movements to generate momentum).
One thing I am super excited about is the kids' zone. Now smaller riders on push or pedal bikes can join the fun. The jump park now has four dirt jump lines highlighted by three large six-foot ramps as well as a whale-tale. Both courses were designed and developed by professional mountain biker and course designer Andrew Taylor, along with his partners Greg Watts, Ryan Bush, Zac West and Joey Schuldt.
“What’s great about this new pump track is that groups can ride together without having to split up, no matter their skill level,” says Taylor, who has built similar parks in Santa Rosa and Lakeport, California, as well as a course on the Oregon Coast for the Boy Scouts of America. “From little kids to professional riders, the park offers something for everyone.”
The new updated park and the other amenities that the resort offers is free for resort guests and also available to the resorts year-round Boundless Pass. The grand-opening and ribbon-cutting for the new pump track and jump park will be Aug. 8, 4-6 p.m. Course designer Andrew Taylor will showcase the course, followed by bike clinics for kids. Tamarack’s new food truck, aptly named “Mountain Bites” will be open and ready to serve guests. On Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 9-10, the resort will host the Twisted Turtle Cross-Country Bike Race.
