Tamarack Resort is gearing up to welcome back the country’s greatest snowboard competition series, the 2007-08 Chevy U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix. On February 9-10, U.S. Olympic medalists, X Games champions and world-class snowboarders go head-to-head at Tamarack on a 22-foot Olympic-sized SuperPipe and on a specially-constructed snowboard cross course.

Thousands of Idahoans turned out to cheer on the top-notch snowboarders

during the Grand Prix’s inaugural visit to Idaho last February. After winning the pipe competition at Tamarack, Olympic silver medalist Gretchen Bleiler remarked, “Having a pipe this big really does a lot for the progression of the sport. The crowd was awesome and just everything about being here was so good.”

So the call is out to all Idahoans to show up and turn up the volume for a literal Who's Who of snowboarding. In addition to Bleiler, riders scheduled to compete at Tamarack include Olympic medalists Hannah Teter, Kelly Clark, Lindsay Jacobelis and Seth Wescott, along with X Games medalists Steve Fisher, Scotty Lago, and Idaho native Nate Holland.

“The field of athletes for the Grand Prix brings together the best group of snowboarders out there, with young riders on the scene going head to head with seasoned pros,” said Ken Rider, Tamarack’s Director of Resort Sales and Marketing. “With the nearly eleven feet of snowfall we’ve received since December and the level of competition headed our way – Tamarack is the place to be for big powder and big air!”

The 22-foot Olympic-sized Hells Canyon SuperPipe is almost ready for riders. Tamarack’s mountain operations team is starting to build the pipe, in hopes of opening it within the next week.

To help fans get to the resort, Tamarack will be running shuttles from Boise and throughout the Payette River Mountains during the course of the competition. Keep checking www.TamarackIdaho.com for the latest Grand Prix details.
