Kirkwood - Ca
Last weekend's winter storms brought another half foot of snow to the slopes at Kirkwood. In addition to Mother Nature's offerings, cold overnight temperatures have enabled the resort to begin snowmaking efforts of its own.

Known as the Area's Largest Ski Expo, the Sacramento Ski & Snowboard Show will be taking place Nov. 17th and 18th at the CalExpo Center. In addition, Kirkwood will be headed to the Bobofest in Reno on Nov. 17th

Featuring Shane McConkey's attempt to "skibase" off the top of the Silver Legacy Hotel.

Heavenly Valley - Ca


Kimberley Alpine Resort, scheduled to open December 16th, 2006.
Summer Glading – Kimberley Alpine Resort strives to provide the most consistent snow surface. Work done in the summer makes for velvety smooth groomers and challenging bump runs in the winter. During the summer, 15 runs on the Easter (North Bowl) side of the resort will get attention as crews clean up in the trees and on the runs. (Notre Dame, Full House, Tramway, Geneva, Dean Left & Right, Twixt, Comet, Magma, Jackpot, Twist, Maverick, Flush, Fuzzy & Flapper). As well, the front side of the mountain will see significant work performed as Rosa, Buckhorn, Mambo, Utopia, Stemwinder and Twilight have all seen brush crews. Also check around the mountain for some new unnamed glades. After all, we can’t tell you everything! Front side work will please skiers and riders who love glades – look for 7-metre spacing throughout the entire front side of the mountain

NEW Trails – For those who want to explore a little before you reach the base area, or for those staying on the mountain, the North Star Trail will take you from below the skier bridge amongst a tree lined, low angle trail to your destination in the Resort plaza. Moe’s Trail – A new intermediate trail to the skiers’ right of Boundary Run. Nate’s Way – A new access trail from the Top of the Tamarack Chair to the Stemwinder Run. New designated FIS Homologated run as part of the Kimberley Paralympic program
