We are sending this email to petition you to keep Kirkwood Mountain Resort in California open past early April.  Please commit to stay open as long as there is good snow.  

Ever since Vail purchased Kirkwood, closing date has been very early.  Vail has closed Kirkwood long before the mountain is done.  Many folks who would prefer to ski Kirkwood then decide to buy tickets for Squaw or Mammoth because of the announced early Kirkwood end-of-season date.    

Kirkwood is a special mountain.  It is one of the rare places in California where cross-country skiers and downhill skiers can start from the same parking lot.  Kirkwood is no frills but that's the draw.  Kirkwood is straightforward.  It has excellent rentals and lessons.  Great runs for newbies and intermediates.  Delicious Bloody Marys for non-skiers.  And plenty of scary stuff for folks who have been on the mountain for years.  Kirkwood really has it all.

We are having epic snow season in California this year.  With a big base and heavy mid-Feb snow, it looks like we could be skiing and boarding well beyond April. We urge Vail Resorts, Inc. Management and the Board of Directors to keep Kirkwood open as long as we have good snow.  Please give us the same consideration you give Breckenridge.
