Kirkwood Mountain Resort announced that they will open for skiing and snowboarding on July 4 weekend this summer 2010. Continued snow and cool temperatures have worked to make this an option. Front page of their web site says it all for the big weekend.
"Get on board for a huge weekend full of skiing, riding, mountain biking, barbeques and MORE during the 4th of July holiday! Chairs 1 and 2 will open for skiing/riding/mountain bike access on Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
