Back Country Ski & Sports Inc. shared Kirkwood Mountain Resort's photo. ...

Afternoon my friends, Kirkwood will be closed for the day… After assessing the mountain we need time and your patience while we begin to dig out… The photo here was taken today while assessing the mountain after the last 48hrs and 9’ of snow… If you have any questions on what we are doing out here, let me assure you that the first thing we need going to do is to dig out and prep for the day ahead… This has been a #Storm for the books and a return to what I remember when I first came to #KirkwoodMtn…. A few housecleaning items: SR88 over the Carson Pass and Spur are closed with no estimated time of opening. Cal Trans is working hard to open the road, but they are dealing with just as much snow as we are… #HavePatience Mountain priorities: 1. Snow safety a. Front-side b. Backside c. Red Cliffs 2. Dig out the tops and bottom stations on all lifts a. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10 & 11. Vista 3. Dig out all Villages a. Red Cliffs b. Timber Creek c. Plaza (K-Bar) 4. Clear and plow all roads and parking We will do all of the above as quickly, but as safely as possible… This is such a blessing and we want to get open, but again (caveat insert) this was one #GiantDump and we have a lot to do ahead my friends… #TrustInKirkwoodMtnOperations #HugALifite #ThankAShovelingGuestServicesTeamMember These folks work hard to #MakeOurMountainProud each and every day. Stay Thirsty my friends, Coop
