(Kirkwood, CA) – The adventure family is emerging as the latest trend at ski resorts across North America and Kirkwood is leading the pack with new programs, equipment and amenities designed specifically for the modern needs of adventure families. Studies show that parents are much more willing to take their children out of school for a vacation if they think their children will learn something along the way. Kirkwood teaches children and their parents about the rewards of winter adventure. The Expedition Kirkwood programs enable families interested in breaking into the backcountry to do so safely by providing the knowledge required to responsibly navigate uncontrolled and unpatrolled terrain. Powder Cat Tours on Red Cliffs allows families to experience the ultimate powder runs days after the storm has rolled through. Families can participate in monthly backcountry awareness clinics where they will learn about snow safety and proper avalanche avoidance techniques. Parents and children alike can practice using avalanche beacons in Beacon Basin, the only beacon training facility in California. Led by Kirkwood ski patrollers and seasoned backcountry guides, hikes up Martin Point let families experience terrain that they may not be comfortable exploring on their own. Located at a base elevation of 7800 feet, Kirkwood receives an average of 42+ feet of snow every winter – more than any other South Shore resort. Unparalleled expert terrain, a top rated beginner area, no crowds and just 177 miles from San Francisco via Highway 88, Kirkwood is the ultimate winter adventure destination for your family.
