By full touring gear the mean having the stuff to be able to travel in the backcountry. So snowshoes and a pack that can carry your avy gear plus a board, or a splitboard. I suspect, they will drop a ridge out of the resort, then hike up and drop one or two more before making it back to the resort/highway. With the California snowpack the way it is, snowshoes would probably work fine though a split would be better. With the terrain surrounding Kirkwood, I am sure it would be some righteous turns.
