“much bigger than it looks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

For a very affordable ski day, you can't go past Homewood. The food was a veritable bargain compared to other resorts, and the lift tickets were too. You park for free next to the chairlifts, instead of 'miles' away too. The ski rund are much much larger than you see from the road.

“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Greatest locals ski area at the Lake. The views are great. The lodge is old and needs a remodel. Terrain park was a nice surprise and black diamond runs were special.

“Best Views on the Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Not only are they the cutest resort, but they are the most beautiful. Skiing views are EPIC here, there are always super fun events going on , and if you need a lesson, their team is great. The lift ticket price cannot be beat and the food in the lodges is AOK by me. My favorite place to ski in Tahoe. Hands down.

“Remodel and close already if there is no snow”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

We attempted to ski here for Easter weekend, bad idea. This place spent money on a new website, apps etc. but nothing on rehabbing the property???? This place is local yes but for the money they charge it should be a total tear down and rebuild. Half staffed, dirt all over the runs and full price tickets?? Who do they think they are. No value for the money they want. If you want to ski and eat a decent lunch without stale food go to another resort. If you want views drive 2 miles up the road they are free. Homewood needs a make over at there expense not the publics.

“Family Friendly Skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We liked the friendliness of the staff and the fact that our car was only a few feet from the lift. We did the easy trails from the top of the mountain to the bottom. The views of the lake were awesome.

My son had a great time in Ski School.
