Why Kirkwood?

There’s something magical that happens when storms roll into Kirkwood. Some like to say we measure our snow in feet not inches, and others simply sum it up as the “K-Factor.”
Storms come from the north and south, pick up precipitation on the west coast, funnel through a tight canyon up the Sierra Foothills and UNLOAD on Kirkwood’s perfect position.
The “K-Factor” generates quality skiing and riding conditions throughout the winter season. Whether it’s a sunny California day or pure stormy bliss, Kirkwood provides fun skiing and riding in all conditions.
