Full review

I usually ski Heavenly or Sierra at Tahoe, but did a 1-day visit to Kirkwood having heard so much about it. After 8 feet of snow the previous couple of days there was lots of serious powder...on some runs it was too much for me! Pleasant surprise was food and drink prices...about 25% less than Sierra and Heavenly, but the lodges were packed and it wasn't that crowded on the mountain.
