“Great family place to ski”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is a great ski area. They have done some improvements to the slope and we had a great day of skiing, Love that the family can pack a lunch and ski right down to your car for a tailgate meal.

“Best family skiing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Far smaller than Squaw it's also much cheaper and usually less crowded. If you work hard you can ski all the runs in a single day. What good is it to have 3 times as many as you can ski at Squaw? Few expert, many intermediate and beginner runs. Best access is from the South parking area. Best senior rates in the area. For the cost of 3 days at Squaw a 62 year old can buy a full years pass at Homewood. Biggest problem is the return runs to the North parking area. These are AWFUL!!! Narrow and twisty with frequent pile ups. Avoid if at all possible. South access much better. Future redevelopment will bring many changes, if they ever survive Tahoe permit hell, but meanwhile it's just fine. Views are fantastic

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

A very deceiving place. The parking area doesn't do it justice there is far far more to it than can be seen upon arrival. Lift tickets are amongst the cheapest around and the resort itself smaller than some but a good range of runs for lower and intermediate skiers. Some challenging blacks/diamonds but I've not tried them. Very friendly with few queues during the week. Mostly frequented by locals as few tourists seem to have found it. Stunning views from many runs.

“much bigger than it looks”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
