Winter Information:
Thanks to its high elevation - the base is at 7800 feet - Kirkwood has some of the best snow in the Sierras. There is a 2,000 foot vertical drop and 2,300 acres of terrain. Kirkwood gets an average annual snowfall of over 50 feet. That makes for some great skiing.

Check it out: in 2007 Ski magazing featured Kirkwood on the front cover, and ranked Kirkwood number eight for snow in North America. Kirkood is the only Lake Tahoe resort ranked in the category.

You have access to downhill and cross-country. Walk to the lifts - and ski back.

For cross country you have your choice of skiing in the Kirkwood meadow - free and just a couple of minutes from the house. Or go to the Kirkwood Cross Country center for a 80km of trails, the option for rentals, lessons and amenities like three warming huts along the way.

Ski trail maps are shown below. For the latest up to date maps make sure to check the Kirkwood web site.
