Thought it would be worth sharing a couple first time visitors experience at Kirkwood! January 22nd, 2016 was another fantastic powder day to enjoy the fresh that the Kirkwood has to offer. Nikki Peterson and Ryan Johnston – Come visit us in Tahoe more often!
“Let me explain ourselves a little bit. There are a few de facto standards of awesome things in this world. Snow sports and skiing are of course one of them… creativity and creative thinking are another… and the third most important ingredient to awesomeness in this world are *moms*. Never forget that all the awesomeness people alive on the planet today… had to come from an awesome mom.
This short movie reflects on quite a few of our awesome principals. We grew up watching Wendy Fisher in ski movies … now 41 (at time of shooting) and *mother* of two children she’s been put to the test to see if she still has it. Mike Douglas of Switchback Productions put this movie together two years ago and won best short at the 2014 Powder awards. Wendy’s fall at the 6 minute mark is sketchy at best … but like any championy awesome mom – she gets right back up to show off her awesomely beautiful technique of making skiing look absolutely effortless. Cheers to you Wendy … now what should we laser for this SUPER MOM!?”
I know for a fact your mom can’t ski like this … mine can! But your mom – no. Haha – That still doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ski with her this season. Be sure you get your mom out on the hill, or a big wheel … and document it! Love you mom!

No explanation needed... so purely played.
“Skiing, especially powder skiing, provides the ultimate experience of dynamic complex interrelationship between the members of a human group, the gravity of the earth, and the snow from the sky. […] One can never be bored by powder snow skiing because it is a special gift of the relationship between earth and sky. It only comes in sufficient amounts in particular places at certain times on this earth, it lasts only a limited amount of time before before sun or wind changes it. People devote their lives to it, “for the pleasure of being so purely played” by gravity and snow.”
