Ski Area
“My favorite ski resort in the area. Famous for its deep snowpack and steep terrain, Kirkwood is many a local's favorite in-bounds playground. Give yourself plenty of time to get there on a powder day as the highway can be treacherous and slow-going. ”

Natural Feature
“Go on a hike at the lake nestled in the forest :) This lake usually isn't as crowded as other popular spots and it provides truly breathtaking views. Great for photo ops or leaving the phone in the car all together and decompressing in the woods.”

Bar

On weekends they have live music (except during winter due to the snow) and they have over 20 beers on tap that you serve yourself. Their pizzas are delicious and super fresh as well. I would highly recommend this spot.”
