Have skied Tahoe many times, but this was our first time at Kirkwood. Will definitely be back! In a low-snow year, Kirkwood had better coverage than the rest. Love the easy access to slopes of all abilities, esp. the groomed blacks. The backside offered an off-piste experience we didn't get at other Tahoe resorts because of poor snow coverage. The drive to/from S. Lake Tahoe is lovely, as is the drive to Placerville. Thinking Kirkwood? Go!
