Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center

Tamarack Lodge Logo Tamarack offers 45 kilometers of freshly groomed track that meanders around Twin Lakes and the Lakes Basin. On skis or snowshoes, Tamarack is a refreshing change for outdoor enthusiasts of all abilities. Tamarack's trail pass options make it easy to spend an afternoon in snowshoes or a whole day on skinny skis. Tamarack has one of the best groomed XC ski trail systems around.

If you never have tried cross country, it is a lot less stressful on the knees, and an even better cardio workout than alpine skiing. Many older folks switch from alpine skiing to cross country when their bodies start to talk back so they don't have to give up the great outdoors. Tamarack's ski school accommodates beginners to experts. Practice the classic stride, or learn more vigorous skate-style skiing. The ski center rents Nordic equipment, including striding and skating skis and snowshoes.

Tamarack is open from 8am-5pm Weekends and Holidays and 8:30am-5pm Weekdays. They offer several different rate packages to make cross country skiing affordable. Tamarack Cross Country operates from the first sufficient snowfall usually around December through April.

Cross country Trail Pass

All persons skiing or snowshoeing the Tamarack trail system need a Trail Pass. Passes may be purchased at the Ski Center next to Tamarack Lodge. Walkers, dogs, sledding and snowmobiles are not permitted on the groomed trails.

Ski School Programs and Packages

Tamarack Cross Country offers the finest instruction in a wide variety of instructional and coaching formats for beginner to expert skiers. All lessons are subject to instructor availability. Group or private lessons are available. Private lessons are by appointment only.

Moonlight Tours

Tamarack also offers Naturalist Tours led by Forest Rangers. These interpretive tours explore the history of the Eastern Sierra and are free, but do require a trail pass, as they will access the trail system. They are fun and informative, and a nice way to break up your holiday. The tours look at the nature, flora and critters of the forest and are offered throughout the winter. They are sometimes called "moonlight" tours.
