175" in the last 30 days!
It has been DUMPING up here today! As of 10 p.m. the canyon road is closed due to avalanche danger, the resort is INTERLODGED and it's STILL snowing.
In the last 24 hours Snowbird has received 23" of new snow, making for a 30-day total of 175" and pushing our season-to-date snowfall to 550". Friday will be sunny but the National Weather Service forecast is calling for even more snow on Sunday and Monday. Be sure to check the Snowbird Snow Report for the latest updates.

Tons of Spring Snow... Over 75 inches on new snow in the past week has pushed Kirkwood’s snowfall total for the season over 750 inches! Conditions are more reminiscent of February than they are April, with several feet of deep soft snow covering all elevations of the mountain. Due to the unusually deep snowpack, 200 to 325 inches, the terrain offers lines and opportunities never seen before. Check out the snow storage pile across from Chairs 5 and 6; it hasn’t been summitted yet, but we estimate it at about 70 feet!
April Events... This weekend is The Best of Kirkwood on the evening of the 8th, benefiting the Kirkwood Ski Education Foundation. It's an evening filled with fabulous cuisine, libations from local wineries and breweries, and a huge silent auction with items such as a trip to the San Juan mountains, a private weekend getaway in wine country complete with an exclusive vintner’s luncheon, and a week’s stay in a private residence in England.
The Sort of Famous Banked Slalom on April 9th is one of the favorite spring events in Tahoe! It's a modified slalom course set in Snowsnake Gully, a natural ravine that offers a unique course that can only be run in Kirkwood.
Don't Miss Kirkwood Jammin' 13... Coming up is the 13th Annual Spring Snow Party Bonanza, Jammin’13, from April 14, 15 and 16. Pond skimming, rail jams, big air comps and loads of fun events for the family make this the premiere spring snow party.
