Kirkwood Ski Resort in the High Sierra California USA

On our way to Lake Tahoe via the scenic Hwy 88, one the places that would be on our route was Kirkwood Ski Resort, so we decided to stop by and checkout the resort. I heard about Kirkwood Ski Resort all the time, but I never been there prior to our stop over because I am not really a snow skier. But for most skiers here in the United States, they probably heard of this famous ski resort.

Kirkwood Ski Resort is easily accessible along scenic Hwy 88 coming from Jackson, CA towards Lake Tahoe. We were on our way to Lake Tahoe when we decided to check out this famous ski area. It was fall/autumn time when we where there so there was no snow in the ground yet.

But even without the snow yet, the view of the mountains there and the tall pine trees were definitely a pretty site and worth the stop. The houses in the area, probably vacation houses, were huge and nice and all blends nicely with the beauty and serenity of the place. I can just imagine how pretty it will look during the winter times, with lots of tourists and skiers traffic all geared up and hitting the slopes.

Kirkwood is known for its snow skiing services, but they also offer so much more other activities aside from skiing like ice skating, tubing hill, snow shoeing, dog sled rides, snowmobiling, ice fishing, etc. They also have lodging, dining and shopping. So Im sure if you visit Kirkwood Ski Resort, there are plenty of things to do for the whole family.
