Are you spending the holiday season in hotels near Amador County? If so, definitely pay a visit to Kirkwood to experience a winter wonderland! Along with skiing, snowboarding, mountains and plenty of trails, the resort will have special events to help you get into the holiday spirit.
The KCA hosts photos with Santa in the Village Plaza. Come have your photo taken with Santa and the Kirkwood Avalanche Dogs. Proceeds will go to help the dogs. Santa will be at the Village Plaza from 10am to 2pm on December 22. Later that night at 6pm, bring the kids to Kid’s Night! Children can enjoy pizza, games and other entertainment for $25 for non-KCA members and $20 for KCA members. Kids ages 5 and up are encouraged to attend. Reservations are recommended, which can be made by contacting Shayma Hill at 209.258.7260 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The KCA is holding a similar night for teens on December 26 at 6pm.
At Kirkwood Mountain Sports, you can shop for the holidays! Ladies can enjoy light appetizers and drinks on December 22 until 7pm. Lynn from Burton will share the latest on ladies outerwear on the first Ladies Night. Christmas Eve is Eggnog Eve this year as you can enjoy cookies and eggnog while getting some last minute shopping done!
From December 26-28, you can join in the monthly guided snowshoe trek under the full moon’s light. There is not a more beautiful and unique sight than the light of the moon reflected on the snow. Coem hoot and howl at the moon. Arrive at 6pm at the Cross Country and Snowshoe Center. Cost is $25 with reservations and a $5 snowshoe rental.
Ring in the New Year at Kirkwood and celebrate its 40th birthday! There will be fireworks, parties, music and much more. There will be a torchlight parade of fire dancers, aerial performers, DJ Berkman and after party for a night of fun. The parade starts as the sun goes down. The after party is at Red Cliffs with Smurko, go-go dancers and a light show.
Have a great holiday season in Amador County!
