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.
