Kirkwood Mountain Resort 

Kirkwood's 2,300 acres offer vast, open bowls, double diamond steeps, cliffs, chutes and miles of cornice—and two separate base facilities give access to a variety of groomed terrain.

When you get lift tickets to Kirkwood they come with legitimate bragging rights, as you rip alongside California’s skiing elite.

Powder Skiing

The average winter brings over 500 inches of snowfall to Kirkwood, for the deepest snowpack in the region and some years the deepest on the continent. 2,300 wide-open acres and two separate base areas translate to uncrowded slopes for every ability, from an unrivaled standalone beginner facility to cliff-walled, double-diamond chutes.

Kirkwood Terrain Map

Kirkwood's ample and diverse terrain consists of bowls, snowfields, glades, chutes, gullies, groomed runs and more. The long ridgeline is crested with miles of dramatic cliffs and cornice. A unique combination of geography and elevation bring more snow—and better snow—to these slopes, than those of any other resort in the region. Options for access include two separate base areas, as well as a cross country/snowshoe center.
