About the Resort

Not much compares to the Kirkwood experience. It's pure, honest and magical. This is where memories come to be made.

Located 35 miles southwest of South Lake Tahoe, Kirkwood Mountain Resort receives some of the lightest and fluffiest powder in North America, with over 350 inches per year. The snow only begins to set the tone for the varying, challenging terrain available. With over 2, 000+ diverse acres, both beginners taking to the slopes for the first time and experts effortlessly gliding through glades for the thousandth time will be able to find something here.

In summer, Kirkwood transforms from a winter wonderland into a playground ripe with adventure. Endless possibilities are available - from rock climbing to mountain biking, and hiking amidst fields of wildflowers - all within steps of Kirkwood.

Endearingly secluded, Kirkwood offers a genuine mountain experience. It's unimaginable snow quality, short lift lines and endless slopes waiting to be discovered only adds to it's already rich atmosphere and charm. Kirkwood is truly like nothing else on earth.
