Well, I personally enjoy the ritzy atmosphere here at Kirkwood. They extremely well priced services with a touch of home mixed in here and there. The staff is very friendly except for the one who clipped my pass.@#$%#@$%%^$$# Anyway, I found the best snow in CA there and I desire to go there tomorrow if the roads are clear. I enjoy the quaint villiage and appreciate the classy atmosphere enveloping Kirkwood valley!
