Went up with a friend for an impromptu ski trip. Great prices. Great people. I am not an advance skier, so I could care less about black diamonds. I like not having to wait in line at the lift and not being run over by tourists in helmets trying to set land speed records going down the hill. All the... More

We bought a three-day pass for our children to learn how to ski and used it over the course of two trips while my husband and I enjoyed skiing on the large & glorious mountain. Pros: Everyone is so nice and willing to help. The snow was amazing the year and there are two mountains you can enjoy with ease... More

We skied three days: Day 1 - t-shirt skiing Day 2 - rain/slush Day 3 - a foot of powder All three days were fun (obviously day 3 was the best). Really enjoyed the laid back staff and uncrowded mountain. Our 5 year old beginner got three days of semi-private ski school, had a great time and went from zero... More

We loved homewood, having skied all the big resorts this the low key, family centered was just lovely. No boarders or skiers 'tearing' it up which was important to us as we were skiing with our children who are only in their second year. No lift lines most runs are groomed and best of all the spectacular lake views. Some... More

How about you announce the road is closed to your ski area before we have to re-route? Well since it's only two hours the other way who cares. I guess Homewood could give a refund, but that takes the criminality out of the equation. What a rip off. Be honest and let all know about the road closure.

Outstanding views and the terrain was a nice surprise. Good variety from beginner to expert. A big issue are the lifts. S. l..o..w..e..s..t lifts ever. Makes it an unlikely return visit.

Nice place for skying/snowboarding... at least for a beginner like me! :) My impression was that homewood was a little less crowded than the others resorts on the area. From the top of the mountain on homewood you are sure to get one of the best views of Lake Tahoe!!

We live in Utah, and had never skied in the Lake Tahoe area, but we made a short trip to Reno for work and stayed a couple of extra days to ski. After extensive research, we decided to ski one day at Squaw Valley (on a Friday), and then one day at Homewood (on Saturday). Our rationale was that: 1)... More

If you're into the flash of Vail, Deer Valley or Squaw, avoid Homewood. If you want a mellow place to ski, with enough black runs to challenge yourself but blue and green for the less adventurous members of your family, come to Homewood. We were here during the surprise blizzard of March 3-5 and had a blast, even with only... More
