One of the best resorts to ski or snowboard in the Lake Tahoe region is Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Why? The snow – Kirkwood gets a lot of it.
And that’s traditionally the case at Kirkwood, which is located off Highway 88 and typically has fewer crowds than other resorts, which translates into more runs for skiers and snowboarders.
With more than 260 inches of snow already this season and entering the snowiest months of the season, Kirkwood is boasting one of the deepest snow packs in the Sierra. It has a base right now of 86 to 106 inches.
Besides the amount of snow, Kirkwood has another intriguing aspect. It’s now offering the new Kirkwood Quad Pack, an affordable way to access this authentic big-mountain ski and ride experience. Kirkwood’s base elevation is 7,800-feet.
The Kirkwood Quad Pack is four lift tickets that can be used any day of the 2012-13 winter season with limited restrictions (see below) for only $65 per lift ticket – a savings of up to $24 per day.
“Kirkwood is such a premium ski and snowboard experience. We’ve got a backcountry-like experience within resort boundaries,” said Casey Blann, Kirkwood’s General Manager. “There will not be a less expensive opportunity to ski or ride Kirkwood for multiple days. (This is) one of those ‘too good to pass up’ opportunities.”
Restrictions: The Kirkwood Quad Pack is only available for a limited time, starting Jan. 16 and going through Sunday, Feb. 10. It can only be purchased online at www.snow.com/kirkwood4pack and is not available for purchase at the Kirkwood Ticket Office.
Pricing for the Kirkwood Quad Pack is $259 for adults, $199 for seniors and teens, and $169 for children, is non-transferable, and only valid at Kirkwood Mountain Resort.
Kirkwood Quad Packs are restricted this Saturday, Jan. 19, and Saturday, Feb. 16 and Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013. All Kirkwood Quad Packs are non-transferrable
