If you're a skier, you've hit all the big boys: Squaw, Alpine Northstar, Heavenly Sierra and Kirkwood. Look a little harder and you'll find the hidden skiing gems like Homewood. Bad snow years means poor skiing here as it's lower in elevation than many. Bit in good snow years and this is a once in a life snow year, Homewood... More

Last year was my wife's first time skiing and it was here at Homewood, a friend told us about Homewood so we decided to give it a try. For me it was my first time at skiing in about 20 years! So after many lessons last season for my wife (thankfully she stuck with it), and a few falls for... More

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!
