Pro skier Lynsey Dyer headlines Expedition Kirkwood Kickoff weekend

Weekend lineup to include giveaways, tune-up tips and teaser clinics;

Expedition: Kirkwood Kickoff Weekend will take over the slopes at Kirkwood today and Sunday with giveaways, tips and teaser clinics designed to get your skills going in the right direction for the upcoming season.

Joining the Expedition Guides will be freeskiing diva Lynsey Dyer from Rossignol Skis and Warren Miller films to share her passion for the sport and help stoke the enthusiasm.

Expedition: Kirkwood is California’s only all-mountain education program designed to expand guests’ knowledge of mountain exploration, taking skiers and riders beyond their boundaries, and teaching them new ways to navigate the slopes.

Clinics are for intermediate through expert ability levels and will be offered each day for skiers, snowboarders and telemarkers. For more information on this weekend or any other Expedition: Kirkwood product, please call (209) 258-7360 or email (see below for a detailed schedule of events and costs).

Optimal snowmaking conditions along with over two feet of natural snowfall have enabled Kirkwood to open additional lifts and terrain. In addition to Chairs 1, 5, and 11, Kirkwood plans to open Chairs 7 and 9 this weekend along with its Timber Creek Base Facilities, ranked one of the “Top Ten Places to Learn to Ski” by USA Today. Snowmaking efforts are currently focused on getting Chair 6 open with access to the legendary terrain of Kirkwood’s upper mountain. Log onto or call 877 KIRKWOOD for the latest updates.

Resort Services will be available throughout the weekend in both the Mountain Village and at Timber Creek including lessons, rentals, retail stores, dining opportunities and daycare, although guests should anticipate modified hours during midweek. Bub’s Pub will be offering Live Music today with Jeff Jones performing from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

For overnight lodging, early season rates are available including Stay & Ski Free packages; those interested can call Kirkwood Lodging at (800) 967-7500 for more information or to make a reservation.
