Today's Tamarack Resort Auction Postponed ... Again

Posted By on Tue, Feb 4, 2014 at 8:53 AM

Initially, today was to be the auction where some of the last remaining pieces of the Tamarack Resort would be going on the block—including Tamarack's ski operations, hundreds of acres of land and an unfinished wing of the Lodge at Osprey Meadows.

But the McCall Star-News reports that the auction has been delayed again, and no new dates have been set.

The auction would have included five ski lifts, and a series of domed structures that have contained the Canoe Grill, Seven Devils Pub, Sports Dome, the Wildhorse Children's Center and the Crane Creek Market. Additionally, the unfinished Mid-Mountain Restaurant was slated for the auction.

A second sheriff's sale of the Osprey Meadows Golf Course at Tamarack was also set for today, but it has also been postponed.

This has been the third time the sales have been pushed back.

In 2007, the Tamarack Resort, just outside of Donnelly, had experienced half-a-billion dollars in real estate sales and the ski runs were being hailed as some of the best in North America. But what once promised to be one of the finest resorts on the planet ended up in bankruptcy, with half-finished buildings and a bench warrant for former Tamarack owner, and still-missing, Jean-Pierre Boespflug.

Meanwhile the Tamarack Municipal Association, representing nearly 400 homeowners, continues to run the ski operations at the resort.
