This resort is wicked!! I would have to say my favorite resort in Northern CA. The elevation is pretty high thus the snow quality is alot better. The resort itself is rarely ever busy. Even on weekends the wait at the lifts are short. Its alot better here compared to the tourist resorts like Northstar and Heavenly where the wait sometimes are 30 minutes.
My homies and i were just up there this past weekend and took advantage of the storm that dumped piles of powder on the mountain. Trust me you wont regret going to Kirkwood!
