On the Hill: Kirkwood Delivers Early Snow
  • On the Hill, brought to you by the Tahoe Center for Orthopedics, brings you a video report showcasing Tahoe’s ski conditions every day.

    Breakdown: Join Tahoe ‘On the Hill’ reporter Brian Hamilton at Kirkwood, and finally some fresh snow! It was a nice change from corduroy to get some fresh turns in. The cold storm that came in brought some nice super fluffy powder. With 3-4” you still cut through to the bottom on turns, but it was definitely nice to get some fluffy turns in.

    Kirkwood official report: 3” in past 24 hours

    Field report: Feels just like 3-4” of nice fluffy snow.

    Liftline status: Chair 5 is the only chair open, but the good news is no lines.

    Weather: Sunny, but chilly. Low of 3 this morning and a predicted high of 27.

    Snowcast: 80% chance of 8-12 inches (numbers change daily) of snow on Friday, and a chance of a few inches on the weekend as well.
