Would you like to live, work and play in a place that averages over 300 days of sunshine per year, boasts an annual snowfall of over 600 inches, has over 2300 acres of legendary terrain and hosts world class events such as the Rahlves Banzai Tour and Legendary Kirkwood Banked Slalom?

If you answered yes to this question, Kirkwood might be the spot for you!  Our unique location atop the Sierra Crest combined with elevations ranging 7,800 to 9,800 feet create a little something we like to call the K-Factor – a geographical predisposition to receive the lightest, the driest, and the most plentiful snow in the Tahoe region. Big mountain skiing and riding with a small mountain attitude, Kirkwood Mountain Resort is the Sierra Nevada’s premier winter playground!

Here at Kirkwood the only thing deeper than our snow is our commitment to our guests and your work experience, so come join us this winter and help make our ski resort a destination like no other. Please take time to explore our employment website and see what Kirkwood has to offer!
