"Ahhh!" ... thunk 

Some smarty at Tamarack chose to look on the bright side of closing day. He or she said, "So what if there's no snow? We'll give visitors something else fast and fun to do." So, on May 19, Tamarack opens the Zipline Adventure. You'll "zip" over 4,400 feet of mountain terrain, getting "bird's eye view of the surrounding mountains, meadows, lakes and forest." They have eight ziplines to send you flying, coming to rest on platforms set high in the trees. Guides narrate the tour "with information about plants and animals native to the Payette River Mountains and the history of the area." Rides are 75 to 875 feet long and you'll face 1,700 feet in elevation changes as you're suspended in the neighborhood of 200 feet above the ground. Each tour lasts three to four hours and costs $80 per person. There are weight limitations, so, call 208-325-1006 for more information.
