Kirkwood has excellent terrain and excellent coverage. Unfortnately, they've failed to get on the power grid and thus the lifts fail frequently. Also, Pro Patrol requires hours to clear the best terrain. Staff has no customer skills and the resort owners are manically focused on real estate, not the skiing experience.
