Pristine beauty, action-packed expeditions and events, and a huge variety of terrain. Lots of open bowls, the highest base elevation and the deepest annual snowfall in the Lake Tahoe area. It’s no surprise that winter purists love Kirkwood, and that the national media have noticed too.

Kirkwood was ranked No. 10 in the country by Ski Magazine (October 2009), the only South Tahoe resort ranked in the top 10, and readers of Silicon Valley's The Wave Magazine selected Kirkwood as Resort of Choice for Winter 2008.

Located just 177 miles from the Bay Area along scenic Highway 88, Kirkwood is becoming one of the nation's top year-round, family destination lifestyle resorts, with winter fun including skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, sled dog tours, and backcountry expeditions.

Experience a true high alpine ski resort vacation by staying slopeside in the quaint Kirkwood Mountain Village. Surrounded by 35 miles of designated wilderness in all directions, Kirkwood represents a true get-away from the chain hotels, fast food signs and traffic jams that turn mountain stays into city experiences. Imagine grabbing a leisurely breakfast while still getting first dibs on Tahoe’s lightest and driest powder. Not a skier, the Kirkwood Village offers Tahoe’s most impressive snowshoe and cross country center, a giant snow tubing hill, nighttime snowcat tours to the top of the mountain, grooming tours after dark, dog sledding experiences and a unique selection of dining options that range from the historic Kirkwood Inn to Bub’s Pub to fine dining at the Wall Bar and Grill. New this year, Kirkwood is also offering winter zip line canopy tours and snowmobiling on our extensive private lands. All this, without ever getting back in your car. With just a 45 minute drive to the casinos in South Lake, you get the best of all that Tahoe has to offer. Come for the skiing, stay for the experience.
