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

    Today’s activity: Join Tahoe ‘On the Hill’ reporter Brian Hamilton for a run down Zachary at Kirkwood. Kirkwood received 8 feet of snow last week! This allowed them to open up way more terrain. The wall is open and the backside is opening for the first time this season at noon today!

    Kirkwood official report: 0” in past 24 hours.

    Field report: 0” in the last 24 hours. Nice groomed runs.

    Weather: Partly cloudy and currently in the mid 30s.

    Liftline status: Practically no one here this morning!

    Snowcast: A big storm is predicted to move in next week. I’ll update this, as we get closer. As there is a chance for light snow this weekend.
