Kirkwood Ski Resort
Here’s the first number you need to know about Kirkwood Ski Resort near Lake Tahoe, CA: 600 -- the average number of inches of snow this small town mountain resort receives annually. Here’s the second number: 2 -- the length, in miles, of the ridgeline at the top of mountain, making Kirkwood a top spot in the world for cliff drops. The 72 ski trails, all of which remain open for most of the season, plus the unspoiled Eldorado National Forest, show why this relatively overshadowed resort has attained cult status for those looking to escape the crowds at other Tahoe resorts.
