Kirkwood, CA. And WIND!
Hands down, Kirkwood owns as far as Lake Tahoe resorts go. However, I went there today and it was my first time going on those double blacks. Particularly, "The Wall."
Is it always THIS windy up there? I understand it's ~10,000ft. high, but the wind was suffocating! It was blowing so hard that I couldn't catch my breath. And it flat out hurts when the wind hits you in the face.
Also, it sucked big time when you're on the lift, you're near the summit and some eats it while getting off the lift and the chairs stop. Then you're left up there, being battered by the wind.
I don't know if this is normal for Kirkwood. Still love that place though.
