Winter Recreation Rental Shack

We're keeping everyone's health and safety top of mind –  things will look a little different than usual this year and rentals will only be available through online reservations.

Tamarack's ski and snowshoe rental shack provides everything you need for a scenic winter trek through our snow-covered prairie and woodland. Hours throughout the season may also be dependent on snow and trail conditions.
