Kirkwood is the California resort that provides a pure mountain escape because of its lifetime of progressive terrain that challenges both personal and physical boundaries and because of the authentic community of like-minded skiers and riders that make Kirkwood their winter playground.

Adventure Together

Kirkwood is the destination for adventurous families. Offering unparalleled learning opportunities and expert terrain, Kirkwood offers families the freedom to create their own perfect day on the mountain. Kids can take lessons at the Timber Creek Family Learning Zone while parents can go on a private tour with Expedition:Kirkwood to unexplored powder stashes. 

Timber Creek Family Learning Zone

Timber Creek’s secluded location, natural fall lines, kids adventure zone, slow zones and dedicated chairlift make it one of the top places to learn to ski. At Timber Creek, natural “enhanced teaching terrain” on green gullies like Trench of Terror help learners advance, build skills and grow confidence. The ideal location of Timber Creek naturally separates ability levels, as advanced skiers and riders do not use the dedicated base, and sets families and learners up to quickly rent gear, sign up for classes and be on the mountain together. Uncrowded runs coupled with small ski school classes, make Timber Creek the best place to learn as a family.


Expedition:Kirkwood is for the avid adventurer looking to explore Kirkwood beyond what’s marked on the map. Programs are designed to teach advanced skills and provide personalized experiences in unmatched terrain. At Kirkwood, backcountry opportunities, both within and just outside resort boundaries, set the scene for specialty clinics, professional coaching, private guided tours and backcountry offerings. Skiers and riders with Expedition:Kirkwood have priority lift access and discover the best of the mountain every single ski day. 

NEW | Fat Bikes

Explore 37 miles of groomed trails at Kirkwood’s Cross Country and Snowshoe Center on skis, snowshoes…and now fat bikes. Mountain bikers can keep their season going this winter by renting a fat bike or riding their own through the three interconnected trail systems in the scenic Alpine Valley. Diverse terrain and modes of exploring are available for all ability levels making Kirkwood’s Cross Country and Snowshoe Center a perfect spot for winter family adventures that can include everyone - even the dog.

#KirkwoodDeep 2019

With standing room only, the #KirkwoodDeep Rider Awards honor the adventurous spirit of the mountain’s culture and ramp up the winter stoke. For the seventh consecutive year, skiers and riders can submit their own videos for a chance to win in coveted categories like “Family that Shreds Together” or “Grom Rider of the Year.” Held each year in December, #KirkwoodDeep brings the Kirkwood family of skiers and riders together for a night of friendly competition, films, and connection.
