The resort is ok. We went right after the fire so things were a bit hectic but they had a good system in place. Rental gear is pretty outrageously priced, unless you get a complete package. They only had pre-season snow so trails were not that great. I might go back again but I wasn't super impressed.

If I could give 0 stars I would. I am astounded not only at the way my son was handled in ski school, but the fact that I sent the email below to guest services and followed up with an email 3 days later and never received a response. I also called numerous times. I believe in always trying to... More

We picked Homewood since we stayed pretty close to it. It wasn't a snowy day and early in the season (12/21). I still would expect they groom the site a little better and open a couple more slopes. There was only one baby slope that is half groomed and barely ok to ski. We had to take a lift to... More

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
