Due to the recent impacts of the Caldor Fire we currently have our Kirkwood Meadow trail system available for the 21/22 winter season.

The Meadow System
Located across the highway from the center, the meadow system connects the cross country center to the Kirkwood Village and provides the best novice skiing in the region. The meadow itself is over two miles long and is one of the last undeveloped high altitude meadows of its size in the Sierra. This season we are working hard to maintain nearly 15 km of groomed trails throughout the meadow to provide a great option for beginners just learning to XC Ski or snowshoe as well as a great option for intermediate and advanced skate skiers!
