Fairmont Resorts to Idaho

    Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, whose renowned properties include the London Savoy and the Plaza in New York, will break ground on Fairmont Tamarack, its first U.S. whole-ownership resort and vacation-home property. The resort community, tucked into northern Idaho’s Payette River mountains (pictured above), is an all-season destination, but owners are likely to be drawn to there for winter sports: The private mountain at Tamarack is limited to just 2,000 skiers and snowboarders daily, and its snow-front lounge will organize tickets, rentals, and lessons for a day on the slopes. In warmer weather, golfers can enjoy the Robert Trent Jones Jr. signature course at Osprey Meadows.

    Buyers can choose from 32 different floor plans in the property’s 305 luxury hotel-condominiums. Homes start at around $700,000 and go up to about $5 million. The resort is set to be completed by 2011. (888.893.1526, www.fairmonttamarack.com)
