Why Kirkwood

An authentic Sierra community.


Kirkwood is a place you can expand, rejuvenate and simply get away. There’s a sense of gathering reminiscent of a simpler time. It’s a throwback to living at a different pace.
The snow here is some of the deepest in the country. Experience a signature mountain escape from Vail Resorts, North America’s premier operator. Kirkwood embodies the spirit of pristine beauty and brazen adventure. It is an escape you cannot replicate.

All the fun. With zero pretense.

Kirkwood boasts the most snow, and the lightest, driest powder in the region. It offers big mountain riding with a small town attitude. Our base is at nearly 8,000 feet above sea level, averaging over 500 inches of snow annually.

With 2,000 feet of vertical drop, and over 2,300 acres of terrain, you can take on anything from calm, groomed beginner runs to hair-raising cornices and cliffs with the most high angle grooming around.

In summertime, Kirkwood turns into a picturesque high alpine playground surrounded by national forests. Hiking, mountain biking and fishing abound.
