Beautiful for backcountry skiing and snowshoeing, less frequented than north Lake Tahoe
This is the best of the Tahoe ski areas. Runs suited to everyone from beginners to daredevil double black diamond experts. Kirkwood always has the best snow. A great ski and snowboard school.
Perfect for beginner skiing, and intermediate skiers. We learned to ski here. 45 minutes from our condo.
Kirkwood's not for everyone - it's a tiny town 30 miles south of Tahoe, so if you want the casinos, services and awesome lake views that Tahoe is justly famous for, this isn't your spot. But if you just want to ski or board hard, Kirkwood will not disappoint: it's got the highest base of any resort in Tahoe, and invariably the best and deepest snow, and no end of steeps, cornices, bowls, and trees. New surface lifts have opened up some great side country, and there are more lodging options than in years past. If you happen to ride the lift with a local, hit them up for suggestions - there are some great, hard-to-find stashes if you know where to look.
