About the owner: I originally found my way to Kirkwood out of frustration in driving Route 50 and Route 80 to the other Tahoe ski resorts. I was frustrated with the traffic and lift lines. When I discovered that Kirkwood was built between 2 mountain passes and has, for years, had the best snow in the Sierra, I was hooked. Also, the power lines are buried, offering uninterrupted views. Not to mention the lack of crowds and long lift lines. I have also learned that, due to huge logging in the Tahoe area, the Tahoe forest was cleared in the 1800's, Today's Tahoe trees are 2nd generation. Kirkwood has "old growth" magnificent trees ( some of which could be 500 years old) and is adjacent to Class I Wilderness area. As a result we enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in the Sierra.
Why the Owner Chose East Meadows, Kirkwood, CA, USA:
