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...More

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.

Homewood is an excellent site for beginner and intermediate skiers. Access is extremely convenient, since it is located right on the main road and you can park very close to the lifts. This is great, if you are with young kids, because you can always...More
