Despite the slow start to winter there has been plenty going on at Kirkwood Mountain Resort! Rail jams, pray for snow parties, some great man-made conditions, terrain park and USAirbag! We are heading into the New Year with top to bottom skiing & riding, and some of the best conditions around Lake Tahoe thanks to our snowmaking crew who remain dedicated to bringing you exceptional surface conditions. The terrain accessed off Chairs 1, 5, 6 & 11 provides skiing and riding for all abilities from first time thru to advanced.
Our full range of Tahoe Learning Center programs are available including group lessons, private lessons and programs for children as young as 2 (209.258.7754 for information). Money saving tip: Book your group lessons online to save up to $20!
Expedition: Kirkwood are operating out of their new headquarters – E:K Outfitters – which also includes a high end retail shop with latest Marmot, Burton and K2 gear plus a selection of BCA backcountry gear.
Kirkwood Mountain Sports are now stocked with all their new season gear. If you’re looking to get your gear dialed, stop by KMS for a free 10 minute boot fit analysis by one of their Masterfit University technicians – they’ll help you get your boots fitting right and feeling good!
