When the lifts come to a halt and are nearly repo'd just as the snow is getting springlike, there is only one thing to do: hike. Tamarack may have shut down prematurely last winter, but that didn't stop anybody. Where there is snow and elevation, there are people willing to hoof it. Added bonus: Very few other people are actually willing to walk uphill on skis, so you get all the turns to yourself. Besides, it looks like that will be the only option at the still-shuttered resort this winter.
