Kirkwood is the backwoods, extreme ski resort of Lake Tahoe. Rugged, remote, and rider friendly, it’s well worth the extra drive. Plus, Kirkwood is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of South Lake Tahoe to preserve the backcountry-style slopes and K-Factor for those who make the often treacherous drive. This epic pass resort distinguishes itself with smaller crowds and piles of powder.
Kirkwood receives 354 inches of average annual snowfall and usually measures the snowstorms in feet, not inches. We visited during a dry spell, but all the runs were rideable and fun thanks to excellent maintenance and grooming on all levels of terrain. With over 2,300 acres ranging from gentle green runs to expert free-ride terrain, there is something for everyone at Kirkwood.
Note: This was filmed pre-pandemic, so check the resort website for the latest safety information and requirements for all visitors. Remember to wear a mask and social distance.
