Kirkwood is surely one of the best ski resort in the world! After a storm, it is packed with deep powder. The lift lines are short and there is no traffic along the way. But the best thing about it is its unsurpassed terrain. You'll find anything like super steep cornices, narrow chutes, cliff jumps, large natural halfpipes, a lot of bumps, and the best tree skiing in Tahoe. Kirkwood has runs that challenges the most advanced experts, yet it is also the best beginner and intermediate resort at Tahoe. In short, this is the resort every skier/boarder should visit, whether you're a newbie or an expert.
