Wildflowers and guided hikes at Kirkwood this summer

Take a hike around the trails at Kirkwood during the summer months and you won’t be disappointed! Hikers will be rewarded with seemingly endless fields of vibrant wildflowers in shades of orange, purple, pink and red. For an extra breathtaking view, stick around for the sunset!

Wildflowers are typically most plentiful during July and early August. Here are some of the usual suspects you can look out for at Kirkwood. These are some of our more common varieties but there are plenty more out there, you just need to look!

Swatch Freeride World Tour Visits Kirkwood

The lone U.S. stop of the Swatch Freeride World Tour (FWT) will take place tomorrow, February 27, at Kirkwood Mountain Resort. To say we’re excited is an understatement!

Beyond a few clear leaders, a pack of hungry underdogs are still chasing the chance to maintain a position on the FWT. Kirkwood is one of the final chances to get points on the board and a place on the podium.

Big Snow & Big Events at Kirkwood!

We may be reaching the home stretch of Winter 11/12 but things show no sign of slowing down! A ‘Miracle March’ has left the resort with excellent coverage and fantastic conditions and there looks to be several more storms moving through for the first half of April so don’t put away your powder skis just yet!
