Latest snow report from Kirkwood and Heavenly Valley



We received 15″-24″ of new snow in the last 48 hours here at Kirkwood. We are planning to open expanded terrain today spinning Snowkirk mid-morning and The Reut by 12pm or perhaps a little later into the afternoon. Solitude chair and Cornice Express are scheduled for 9am.




Due to continuing power issues and other complications from the recent storm that brought the resort 3″, Heavenly will not open today, December 13. Our staff is working hard to get the mountain open for Sunday, and we greatly appreciate your patience during this challenging time.

Please join us tonight in the Heavenly Village for a free Young the Giant concert at 7:00 p.m. as the wrap-up to Winter Ignite.

Should there be no vacancy at Black Bear Lodge this holiday season, another mountain hideaway might be available. This one is closer to Kirkwood, however, Heavenly Valley North is just a half hour away should you have a pass that allows you to ski or snowboard both (lucky you!). Here’s the scoop on the super-private Diamond Valley House that has a pond for iceskating (weather permitting) and miles of cross country skiing right out the door. Bonus: Grover Hot Springs mineral pool is just ten minutes away, ready for soaking your tired bones after a long day of having fun in the snow or hiking or biking.
