Big drops, short lines, and wide open spaces
Not very close to Tahoe for nightlife
Kirkwood = BIG STEEPS. BIG CLIFFS. BIG RUNS. Best snow in Tahoe. Best place to ride in Tahoe. My experience at Kirkwood was spectacular (it helps that I met some hotties from So-Cal) but the runs were amazing, snow was deep and fresh and the terrain was unlike anywhere else I had ridden.
If you to go Tahoe make sure to spend at least 2 days at Kirkwood, you wont be dissapointed.
