My first day at Kirkwood I picked up my seasons pass and it turned out to be blower. Sierra cement feels just like Utah pow. The conditions driving were scary, the conditions on the mountain were of heavy snow, heavy winds, and no visibility. I have no idea what the mountain really has to hold, it seems like a mix of Brighton, Solitude and a mini Snowbird. Not much can compare with Chip's Run and Snowbird, but I know I'm going to have fun! Here is to the 2010-2011 Winter Season!
