Kirkwood Mountain Resort

Afternoon my friends,
Kirkwood will be closed for the day…
After assessing the mountain we need time and your patience while we begin to dig out…
The photo here was taken today while assessing the mountain after the last 48hrs and 9’ of snow…

If you have any questions on what we are doing out here, let me assure you that the first thing we need going to do is to dig out and prep for the day ahead… This has been a #Storm for the books and a return to what I remember when I first came to #KirkwoodMtn….

A few housecleaning items:

SR88 over the Carson Pass and Spur are closed with no estimated time of opening. Cal Trans is working hard to open the road, but they are dealing with just as much snow as we are… #HavePatience

Mountain priorities:
1. Snow safety
a. Front-side
b. Backside
c. Red Cliffs
2. Dig out the tops and bottom stations on all lifts
a. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10 & 11. Vista
3. Dig out all Villages
a. Red Cliffs
b. Timber Creek
c. Plaza (K-Bar)
4. Clear and plow all roads and parking

We will do all of the above as quickly, but as safely as possible… This is such a blessing and we want to get open, but again (caveat insert) this was one #GiantDump and we have a lot to do ahead my friends…

#TrustInKirkwoodMtnOperations #HugALifite #ThankAShovelingGuestServicesTeamMember
These folks work hard to #MakeOurMountainProud each and every day.

Stay Thirsty my friends,
Coop

https://www.facebook.com/events/543999376117431/ It's week 0, so hopefully a few people are down for this? It's the closest national park to Stanford. *more info about how the government shutdown is affecting national parks here* vox.com/the-goods/2019/1/3/18167030/national-parks-government-shutdown-2018
Glad to see Stanford Adventure Program will be attending this year's Wilderness Risk Management Conference. We applaud your commitment to enhancing your risk management practices!
I'm hiring Summer Counselors (18+) and Summer Instructors (21+) for the science camp I run ~30mi north of Lake Tahoe. We would love some of you to apply! I'm an alumni of Stanford from '00, and after a Bio Major and lots of fun outdoors with fellow students, this is my work now. Come join us!
It's not too late to pre-register for CRAG, the annual climbing competition hosted by Stanford this weekend! Open to folks of all climbing abilities, with fresh new problems set at a variety of difficulties. $15 registration fee gets you a raffle ticket, pizza, and a full day of fun! Check it out at: http://recreation.stanford.edu/climbing/competitions/
Alumni '00 -- I'm hiring Outdoor Science Instructors for our camp near Lake Tahoe for roles from Feb-Nov. Pay, Room&Board, diverse / close knit team, and lots of fun! Would love to get some Stanford folks on the team.
