KIRKWOOD'S 40TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON BEGINS NOV 21ST
Fri 19 October 12
The mornings are getting a little bit colder and winter is close!
Kirkwood are ready to start making snow as soon as temperatures allow to ensure you’ll have quality conditions come opening day!
In anticipation of a big winter, we’ve invested in some new equipment including a new Howitzer avalauncher to get the steeps open on time as well as a Zaugg snow blower to ensure our parking lots clear quicker for you on all those powder days!
Kirkwood is also the Sole US Stop For The Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face: The Freeride World Tour and The North face Masters have long been the premier events for the winter, this season they’re combined into one unified world tour! This 5 star event hits Kirkwood Feb 27 to Mar 3, 2013.
Other changes this season include a complete revamp of our food and beverage establishments, the addition of EpicMix technology and comfort bars added to all of our chairlifts. Head here for more information about what’s new this season.
From this season Kirkwood guests will now be able to take advantage of EpicMix technology. EpicMix allows guests to track their vert, earn serious bragging rights and share their accomplishments with their friends instantly on facebook and twitter. . A revolutionary technological advancement for the ski industry, EpicMix automatically captures and uploads all mountain activity to your dashboard. Because of Radio Frequency scanners at the base of every lift and RF technology built into every Vail Resorts season pass and PEAKS card, skiers and riders can follow their days on the mountain, track vertical feet, see where they rode, earn EpicMix pins for achievements and collect points.
