The data for this real-time snow and weather report is obtained directly from the snow weather plots at Kirkwood Mountain Resort and the surrounding areas. Snow totals and snow accumulation are consistently 15 to 20% more than reported as a result of wind, micro squalls and snow loading. Weather patterns at Kirkwood Mountain Resort are exceedingly difficult to predict – when venturing into the mountain, be prepared for rapid, dramatic weather changes.
We will be offering powder & groomed conditions throughout the entire front side of the mountain. Snow will be light and dry in the morning and becoming a little heavier as it warms up through the day. Absolutely incredible skiing for late April!!
