Apres Ski in Kirkwood

Kirkwood Resort

The small resort is currently undergoing a US$250 million metamorphosis from a day skier’s mountain to a year-round destination resort.

It’s already showcasing a new ski-in, ski-out Mountain Village with numerous stores and restaurants and an ice rink at the plaza’s edge, offering full amenities to serve both destination visitors and the local community, much like the famous Telluride Ski Resort in Colorado. Other new developments include Kirkwood’s Cornice Café, remodeled and reopened as Bub’s Sports Bar and Grill, and now a popular place for families. A swimming and fitness complex has also been completed for year-round operation.

Kirkwood Bars & Restaurants

Kirkwood has six bars and Bub’s Sports Bar and Grill is the most popular bar and evening hangout for all age groups. Bub’s boasts a full-service bar, big- screen T.V.s, pool tables, and a warm, inviting atmosphere.

For a great spot to end the day, skiers head for Off the Wall Bar & Grill. Only 35 highway miles (56 km) away, South Lake Tahoe has over 100 dining establishments, 65 lodgings properties, shopping, dancing, live music, entertainment, and gaming action at the casinos where celebrities take the stage every night of the week.

Kirkwood Other Activities

If you seek other snow thrills, sample some of the 50 miles (80 km) of scenic cross-country skiing, or try a horse-drawn sleigh ride.

But you don’t have to be skiing to enjoy your time at Kirkwood. Just outside Kirkwood there are several trails for snowmobiling. There are lakes for ice fishing, and Grover Hot Springs- a natural outdoor mineral pool -in Markleeville is just a 45-minute drive down the mountain. Slide Mountain Tubing Park opened two years ago.
