Kirkwood is known for its abundant snowfall and a broad selection of advanced skiing terrain, as well as plenty of intermediate trails. Average seasonal snow fall is 39 feet, the most of any Sierra Resort. Kirkwood has a base elevation of 7800 feet, higher than other Tahoe ski areas, and a vertical drop of 2000 feet. The mountain is unique in that it has 2 miles of ridgeline at the top. This makes Kirkwood popular for cliff drops and cornices.Please RSVP before Friday Dec 3rd on this Meetup event page
