Great pow boarding today!  Wind was brutal but it was still amazing trip.  Chair 4 was on hold for a few hours. The top of chair 4 had terrible visibility. But even on bad storm and wind days kirkwood rules

Epic Powder day! Chair 4 was on wind hold for a couple hours but opened back up around 12:30 which was nice because the lift lines were getting pretty long. When all the lifts are running, even a packed Kirkwood is better than anywhere else. Plenty of fresh snow off of chair 6 (and a good traverse). Well worth it though.

went Saturday. Had a lot of powder. Most of it got tracked out by 2. backside is open now. Very crowded I had to park outside the front gates and take the shuttle in. I would have given 5 stars but a bus driver lied to me and I had trouble getting back to my car. Don't listen to the parking attendants and try to park inside the front gates. Powder may still be in Eagle Bowl and far left of the back side cornice

They opened up chair 2 mid day. Closed it for a bit with some problems then opened it again. All sorts of fun soft stuff to play in. Be prepared to be leg deep if you fall in... Great day there yesterday.

Conditions were pretty good today. Despite the heavy snow most of the runs stayed nice throughout. They def have a good amount of snow now. Just need some light fluffy stuff now.

Very little snow. The runs that were open were hard packed but overall I had fun. We went to heavenly but conditions looked worse than Kirkwood. Great service made it an enjoyable trip

Low traffic. Machine made snow on a few runs. Less than a 3rd of the runs open. That said cornice express is running and decent till later in the afternoon. They are really hurting for some fresh snow.

Minimal snow coverage, but at least cornice express is open, it is not crowded and the weather is great. Worth the visit.
