KIRKWOOD is a all-around mountain but would favor the intermediate rider to expert. Their location and high base elevation makes them a top resort in snowfall. The crowds are non-existent on the weekdays. Weekends can be crowded but mostly early season & on fresh powder days. (Get in line early/ The Wall) Your guaranteed to find something you like here! Getting/driving to KIRKWOOD can be a challenge after BIG storms because their located around avalanche zones. (CA Caltran Road Info 1800-427-7623 - Highway 88)
