Tamarack Resort open for mountain biking, shuttles will start July 4
Tamarack Resort will offer shuttles in a 10-passenger van and run from the Sports Dome to mid-mountain on Saturdays and Sunday through Labor Day. The shuttle will give riders the opportunity to take in 1,800 feet of vertical drop per ride.
“The shuttle service mountain biking will begin the process of putting Tamarack Resort back on the mountain biking map. Guests have not seen this type of program at the resort since 2007 and we are very excited with this new resort offering,” said Brad Larsen, General Manager of Tamarack Resort.
Trails on the mountain are open to hikers and bikers with no fees for use. Nearly all are free of snow except the top of the mountain. Tamarack will host a trail day on June 14 where volunteers can help clean up, maintain and improve trails. For a map of Tamarack’s summer trails go here.
Jetboaters can make reservations online for Salmon River starting June 1
The Forest Service will make the switch from a call-in system at Slate Creek Ranger Station to the National Recreation Reservation Service website at www.recreation.gov.
Permits are required year-round for accessing the Main Salmon Wild and Scenic River. Powerboat permits will be available for reservation starting in June for the control season from June 20 to Sept. 7. Powerboat permits for non-control season dates (Sept. 8-June 19) will be available for reservation six months in advance. Customers may have three active permits during the control season and an unlimited amount of permits outside of the control season. The online reservation system will be available 24 hours a day.
After a permit is printed, it cannot be canceled or changed. Cancellations at least seven days prior to scheduled arrival date will receive a full refund minus the $6 reservation fee. Changes can be made to your permit one day prior to your scheduled arrival date, as long as it has not been printed. Anyone with questions can call Jeremy Harris at the Salmon River Ranger District at 839-2211.
