Are you and advanced skier?  Would you like to be within an hour’s drive of the hustle and bustle of South Lake Tahoe? If so, Kirkwood is the resort for you!

As a mountain, Kirkwood aka “The Woods”  is most appropriate for advanced or expert skiers.  Among Lake Tahoe resorts, Kirkwood is known for having fantastic snow.  The average yearly snowfall is 400 inches.

The resort is transitioning from a day “ski area” to an "all- inclusive vacation resort”. However, Kirkwood is still the place to go where skiing and boarding are the main activity.
