The last reviewer is right about one thing, you should not waste your time at the Wood. Yes, please go elsewhere so I can have some of the Deepest Snow, Sickest Terrain, and LEAST crowded slopes anywhere in North America.
Whaa Whaa Whaa, with a base of 8000 feet and mega storms coming out of the Gulf of Alaska, the weather is bound to get hairy once in a while. I am sorry that your day was such a waste, should have been there a day or two after your horrible day. It was Epic with multiple FEET of Pow and no one around.
But again, please avoid Kirkwood at all cost. Enjoy a wonderful day of riding and skiing at Vail Jr. " Heavenly"
