Homewood Mountain Resort is located on Lake Tahoe's West Shore, just south of Tahoe City. Beloved by locals as one of Tahoe's friendliest mountains, Homewood boasts 1,260 acres, groomed terrain for every ability level, fabulous tree skiing in shadow of Ellis Peak, and approachable terrain parks. The family-friendly atmosphere extends from the two base lodges to the Big Blue View Bar at mid-mountain, and a green run from the top of the mountain ensures that even beginners will get to take in the spectacular panoramic view of Lake Tahoe from the peak. A lively apres ski scene at the West Shore Cafe, located right across the street and directly on the shore of Lake Tahoe, completes a magical day of skiing/riding on Tahoe's West Shore.

Man, I love this place. A hidden gem in the world of Tahoe ski resorts. Views, that in my opinion, equal any other resort around Tahoe. The place had an old ski resort feel about it. Great place!

We had an awesome good time here! Lots of fun. ALL the staff were extremely warm and friendly, very accommodating and helpful. That goes for the folks in the ticket office, ski rental shop, sporting goods store, ski school, lift operators, kitchen and bar. Special mention for Elizabeth, Andy Tania, Justin, Jim, Marty and Stephanie I love that it felt like old school family style skiing, not the impersonal cattle drive you'll find at the big resorts. For a small resort your PEOPLE are the winning combination.

I have to laugh at all the complaining in these reviews; these people want to be able to ski or board in some sort of bubble where you can never fall, that the brand of a lift makes it terrible, that I bought a lift ticket and cannot get a refund or scalp it, and that God himself screwed up by not making more green runs built into the mountain. My suggestion to these people is to do us all a favor and stop when you see boreal and stay there. Have always loved this place as you can really get lost in the natural terrain. Great family owned mountain which is so welcoming and truly a throwback to what skiing and boarding is all about; no neon race suited gapers running over your skis or board trying to get ahead one chair here. No hip hop wannabes smoking weed on the chair in front of you and your kids, no foul language and bad attitude from the employees. This is a really great mountain. If you are into glitz and glitter go to north star.

The experience was great! I visited Homewood on 12/30/2015 with my brother and another family friend. After arriving at about 11:00 a.m., we parked at the main parking lot which was conviniently located at the base of the slopes. Parking was short, but additional street parking was offered. Within five minutes, we had bought out lift tickets. Unlike Boreal, the crowd was managed very well - the crowds were same as Boreal but no lines were present. After ten minutes, we joined the bunny slope line in order to warm up. One bad thing about Homewood is that the bunny slope lifts are simply poles hanging from a cable which you have to hang on to. They are slow, single rider at a time, and difficult to use. We then went to the Madden triple chair, which was unfortunately a Yan lift. These lifts are unimaginably slow, hard to board, and have no safety bar. This lift was slightly faster and much easier to board than other Yan lifts, but the ride to mid-mountain took about 9 minutes. We skied for hours riding the advanced blue slopes and trying out the terrain park. The view was excellent, and the trails were groomed very well. The resort had an excellent mountain, with a bunny slope coming all the way from the summit to the base. Blues of different levels covered a large portion of the 1200 acres, many of which provided as a transition from green to blue and blue to black. Double black diamonds were also located at Homewood, offering a great view of the lake. We rode the Old Homewood Express, which was the best express chairlift I had gone on. Within 4.5 minutes, we were at the summit. The blue slopes were perfect, with a right mix of packed powder and loose powder. The Ore Car trail, which serves as a connection from the mountain to the North Lodge, was narrow, icy, and neglected. The sign pointing to the trail had fallen down, and a long uphill stretch was required in order to reach the slope. If you want to ski from top to base and do not want to ski on a black diamond, take the Lombard Street Slope. Unfortunately, you cannot ski at high speed down a small section of this winding slope, but it is an excellent slope for all levels, as it is wide and groomed very well. Overall, Homewood was a great resort offering views of the lake, excellent powder, and a large variety of trails. I also liked the ski school and the cafeteria. Homewood is an everyone's resort, with trails ranging from beginner to expert. Visitors and non-skiers can walk all the way up the bunny slope and give instruction to their kids. I think Homewood is the best family resort I have been to. I suggest that if you want to go skiing and are any level below extreme expert, Homewood is the place for you.

Loved it. This is where locals come to ski/board. Great variety of trails for all skill levels. Easy and plenty parking. It is usually not crowded here unlike larger resorts. Family friendly. Food court is so-so, but if you want something little more upscale, there is a great restaurant just across the street. Rental place can be crowded in the morning, so come early. We bought tickets online - there is a separate line to pick up tickets which makes it quick. Will come back for more skiing fun!

If you're reading these reviews, ignore 99% of the complaints. As a LONG TIME ski resort insider, everything that goes on at Homewood from non-transferable tickets to "the scary meter ledge" in the beginner area is all perfectly normal. I live on the other side of the lake and I've always enjoyed an occasional trip around to hit up Homewood in a good season. If you're a beginner, the easy runs are going to seem a little more intermediate than you might like. If you're an expert, unless Quail is open, you're going to be a little disappointed with the groomers but the trees at Homewood are super fun with adequate coverage. Homewood is a very basic mountain, though they're planning a great deal of upgrades. Homewood has been a long time local-knowledge mountain and even with the planned expansion, it might be safer for totally inexperienced skiers bringing the whole family up to Tahoe from...oh I don't know...let's say San Jose - to go ahead and save their patronage for the I-80 boiler plate resorts. Whether you're local or a vacationer, though, if you're more interested in skiing than shopping and you're looking for a mainly intermediate hill, Homewood's the place. You'll also be hard pressed to find better views of Tahoe at any other resort. Ignore the negative reviews. They're either from people who have little to no experience skiing or people who are used to being catered to non-stop. Tahoe is not Vail and we never will be. We're here to cater to people who love their respective sports and we do it exceptionally well everywhere in the Tahoe Basin.

Homewood was my first ski experience in at least five years. Rental staff were eager to help and to guide me towards areas and slopes to ski. Lifts are well-staffed, the cafe tent on the mountain is a great place to hang out, and the view of Tahoe alone is worth the trip up.

Gorgeous Resort that nobody knows about. Huge mountain and no crowds. And the price hasn't run up (as much) as some other places. Get to the top and the view will not be beat. Check it out.
