KIRKWOOD Mountain Ski Resort South Lake Tahoe California Epic Pass Guide | Snowboard Traveler

KIRKWOOD Mountain Ski Resort South Lake Tahoe California Epic Pass Guide | Snowboard Traveler

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.

    Moving to Kirkwood next month and this was pretty helpful for what they have. Next time can you try to give more detailed info on the parks if possible, theres not much info on their page and for small resorts like these that can be make or break

    I love Kirkwood. It’s my favorite of the 3 Epic Pass resorts. When conditions are good, they are incredible. But when the wind comes in, things can get bleak fast.
