The Homestead

  I skied at The Homestead a lot when I was a kid. I learned to ski there, and I have many good memories of that place. I've been skiing much bigger mountains since then, but I still think The Homestead is great. Says Frank.

It's a big wide slope with some smaller slopes on the side. I like it, it's pretty. Says Rudy.

The annual snowfall of 4 feet is of course not top-notch, but not too shaggy either. This ski hill has an average percentage of
    advanced and expert slopes and an average share of beginner and intermediate slopes. The Homestead has a comparatively humble array of slopes and enough ski lifts to serve them all. This ski mountain has 9 trails, and they are great
to ski on. The nearest ski area with a higher drop from top to bottom is 26 miles away. The Homestead gets covered by less than average snow every snow season. This is a small ski hill boasting a roughly average elevation difference compared to other mid Atlantic ski areas. The 700 foot height difference is unsurprisingly not that much to boast about, but The Homestead has so many other splendid characteristics. All of the 5 different ski lifts are fun to get  
a ride with. The skiable territory being 45 acres, it makes for a friendly skiing experience. You may have to settle for a hotel a bit far away from the bottom area if you want to stay an extra day, but if you donít have reservations, you might end up sleeping in your car. A little bit of exercise and just being on the trails for a while tops anything. Snowboarding and skiing in this part of Virginia is so much fun the whole ski season. You get loads of skiers driving up here from Roanoke on snowy weekends. The ski map on this internet page will give you a good idea what The Homestead is like. Virginia gets enormously charming during snow season; it is truly a splendid time of year for skiing or snowboarding.
