“As of Sept. 1, we saw spot fires at Kirkwood Resort and the fire continues to head in the direction of Heavenly. We have been working around the clock with emergency fire responders to do everything we can to prepare and protect our resort.
Our snowmaking systems are up and running, we have established fan guns that are spraying critical buildings and lifts, and we have snowmaking hydrants pressurized and ready, with hoses spread out all over the mountain for firefighters to use. We have also ensured our facilities, from lifts to parking lots, have been available for emergency personnel.
This continues to be a rapidly evolving situation, and we are in constant communication with Cal Fire, the United States Forest Service fire team, the local Fire Department and other local organzations.
Our hearts go out to those who have been affected and we stand with the Tahoe community.”
Kirkwood Mountain Resort in Tahoe just posted the above statement to their Facebook Stories confirming spot fires on the premises. Their snowmaking systems are currently deployed to wet the resort and surrounding areas. Our thoughts are with the brave firefighters battling the Caldor Fire.
