Kirkwood is a unique mountain. 58% of our 2,300 acres is advanced/expert terrain. We are a remote resort tucked into the Sierras. We are ranked in the top 10 snowiest places on earth. Due to the amount of precipitation we receive and the commute, being a lift operator at Kirkwood can be more demanding than other resorts. We work hard but we also shred hard.
