Encompassing a 2-mile horseshoe shaped ridgeline along the Sierra Crest in the Eldorado National Forest south of Lake Tahoe in California, Kirkwood is best known for its wickedly challenging terrain. Its Cirque offers steep double blacks, cliffs, chutes, glades and cornices with colossal amounts of natural snowfall. Rugged and intimate due to its location, skiers and riders will enjoy an average annual snowfall of over 600 inches spread across 2,300 skiable acres with 72+ trails. Considered an advanced mountain, Kirkwood’s terrain is rated 15% beginner, 50% intermediate, 20% advanced, and 15% expert and is has been home to the North American Free Skiing/Riding Championships for over 10 years.
