We have been coming here for years and the prices are some of the best in the area. Although an hour drive or so, the views rival Heavenly. There are some black diamond runs, but this is mostly a place with great greens and blues. Pack a lunch because parking is close and you can easily get the lunch out... More

It a small ski resort a few high speed lifts. Depending on the conditions and season the quality of the sking varies. There are a few trails that have just amazing lake views, the optics make it look like you are skiing into the lake. A must do just for that!

Homewood is a classic small family friendly ski resort on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. When I mean on the shore, the view of the Lake is right at your feet. It's so spectacular, you feel like you will ski right into the Lake. Most of the runs are groomed intermediate or beginner and the tree skiing, when there... More

It is much more reasonable price compared with the big resorts closed by. And very easy to get access. Plus it is close to the lake and has a beautiful view when you get on the top of mountain.

Homewood will not be all things to all people. They seem to encourage the mountain staff to be friendly to guests and this seems genuine and not overdone. Kudo's to Homewood's staff. There is a good amount of varied terrain and I would recommend Homewood to intermediate or advanced intermediate skiers looking for a less expensive option than the mega... More

Homewood is a low-keyed ski resort with great runs and rarely any lift lines. The prices are very low compared to most other Tahoe resorts. If you're concerned about safety, you'll appreciate the uncrowded runs where collisions are unlikely and advanced skiers/boarders are careful around beginners. The parking lot is a fun place to be mid-day where people and dogs... More

Great view and not nearly as many people as most of the other resorts (it was Tuesday - Friday and spring break for some). My longest line was two groups in front of me. The online 3-day pass was $63/day without restrictions. The terrain reminds me of Northstar and Bear Valley. The downside is only one fast lift (a quad)... More

Grandchildren wasted two winters in enormous classes a Heavenly. Son's Snowboard instructor at Heavenly failed to start lesson with proper Fall techniques. Now has lower back injury. Ski instructors at Homewood had Grndkids up and skiing in a day. Two master the Mountain and was on Black Diamond runs in a day. Smaller classes really payoff.

Inexpensive, uncrowded, the most beautiful view of any ski area on earth, rustic, friendly staff, and of course, on powder days, the trees at Homewood are the place to be. Locals have long known this.

I drove around from the other side of the lake to this smaller ski resort to avoid the expensive lift tickets and crowds. As you take the lift up, you can turn around and it looks like the slope goes straight into the lake. Sadly, I guess this place is rarely open because of a lack of snow on this... More
