|MLK Weekend AheadHello Skiers and Riders!
Sure, we’d all like to have some fresh POW for MLK weekend. Of course you gotta share that with 10,000 of your closest friends, starting with the commute up to Tahoe, which could take a light year, so you’d better have a stasis unit for those kids in the back, or you’re gonna go nuts.
However….you lucky ski/ride hounds, we don’t have that! What we have is excellent groomed slopes, (where they make snow) plenty of sun, and for a holiday, it will almost feel like you’ve been adopted by Bill Gates, and he’s rented out the entire resort for you and your crew this weekend.
I think Kevin “Coop” Cooper, the heart and soul of Kirkwood. put skiing MLK best in his Kirkwood Holiday Report. In fact it was so good, I copied and included in the newsletter.

*Scoop From Saint Coop
“Its time to sharpen up the skills @the Wood, Conditions are firm in the morning, softening throughout the day
Its tune time and also a great time to practice your skills in firm conditions.
Step #1 take your gear in and get a tune, after a great holiday run of riding (personally 25 days so far this season) it is time to take the sleds in for a sharpen and a wax
I like a .5 base with a 2. side, hydrocarbon all temp wax
If youve a few flesh wounds to the base its a good time to have them filled so ensure the techs are giving you the full tune
Now youre ready to get your Clem Smith (World Carving Champion) groove on
If youre a bit timid on firm pack, take a lesson, when the snow is firm in the AM it the best as you can really tell if you are connecting with the snow or carving, once youve become confident its time to let m run
@KirkwoodMtn we have or I should say we are grooming 31 runs each night from Beginner to Advance terrain with a few high angle grooms for those of you that are adventurous
This is the time each year (not my first rodeo) that we have the Jan thaw, the February slips in and we are in the zone
No practice, couched out? Not good, keep getn out each day, practice, push, play and youll be in damn skippy shape once Mother Nature opens the storm door and were #KirkwoodDeep ripping cold smoke POW.”
Not this week, not next week, unless we have a pretty good change in the forecast. The storms are out there, they are getting pushed north. That doesn’t mean we couldn’t have some snow, as these storms brush past. The first real chance for snow is likely the first of February. For those who have been around for the last couple of years, this seems to be the pattern. January thaw, then it comes on in February.
