Nice Ski School, but Such A Weird Surface Lift

Its small and lacks snowmaking but when it has snow...its awesome and has the best views of Lake Tahoe. Lifts are slow...no high speed chairlifts and lodges are old...Resort is getting ready to be redeveloped which will be good.

Homewood Mountain Ski Resort is a small town, old school ski hill. There are plans to drastically change the layout & scope of place and actually change it into a "Resort". At this time it's still a couple of small buildings & a mid mountain "Snack Tent". The new plan is to turn it into a massive, upscale "Stay &... More

We absolutely love Homewood Mountain! If you are lucky enough to ski/board this mountain you must visit Krista in the Homewood store. Krista's knowledge on winter apparel and accessories like helmets, goggles, and all winter wear is top-notch. The shop is full of great products at the best prices I have ever seen at a mountain resort.

If you're a decent skier (not beginner) you're going to love Homewood. It's a beautiful spot to ski at with some of the best views of Lake Tahoe of any place I've skied in this area. I was told by a local to try it last year when we were waiting in an hour+ line to get into Squaw -... More

We visited Homewood Mountain Resort on 12/27/14. It was a beautiful day in Lake Tahoe basin and we were looking forward to doing some beginner runs in Homewood Resort. Here are some pros and cons as observed by a beginner like us. Pros: 1. The upper mountain trails accessible by the chair lift are fantastic. Even if you are not... More

I used to bring my family to homewood because it had great features for everyone in my family. They had some of the best and smoothest jumps in lake tahoe. My kids loved it and I loved to do them occasionally with them. I always felt like the transition from takeoff to landing was extremely smooth and less scary than... More

Homewood Ski School is a great ski school for all levels. The lessons were a great deal that included a lift ticket and rentals. The teachers, from around the world, are very friendly and helpful. The only negative- they have surface lifts that are so weird. They take almost 5 tries to get master the surface lift compared to 2... More

My summer experience at Homewood Ski Resort started out good, & then ended with me & my disappointed family demanding a refund and leaving before seeing one of our favorite bands play, "The Dead Winter Carpenters". "Homewood Days", a supposed all day festival, celebrating beautiful Lake Tahoe & it's history, included free Mtn. Bike demos and also free Paddleboard demos.... More

Beautiful views at the mountain of the lake and a free two hour advanced/expert lesson by Pam, former US Olympic ski team tuner. She was great-very insightful. What a value!!!!!!!!!!

Homewood is not the biggest mountain, but it has all kinds of terrain. Very friendly place. Our whole family has enjoyed it in the past. The views are stunning. Rates are reasonable. And they offer free intermediate/advanced lessons Sunday-Friday. The free lessons is why I went there on my most recent trip. I want to get more competent and comfortable,... More
