Ski Areas > US West > Homewood, California




  Homewood is a really nice ski resort. Lots of variety and a great view of Lake Tahoe. There are a lot of great ski resorts in this area but this is my favorite. Says Bob.

Friend of mine went skiing here and he says it was great. I'm planning to give a try this season myself. Says Linda.

Homewood is a standard size ski area having a roughly average vertical drop if compared to other west coast ski resorts. The seasonal snowfall is stronger than
    average at this ski resort. The 1,650 feet of altitude difference is not too bad; Homewood makes good use of it all. With the terrain being 1,260 acres being deficient in ski terrain won’t happen. This ski mountain has 56 ski runs
that you can ski on; there are more than enough ski runs for every capability. Homewood has an acceptable collection of runs and sufficient lifts to serve them all. This ski area has an average proportion of hard ski slopes and an average share of blue and green runs. The highlands of the Northern Sierra Nevada make for a good view. Getting your skiing muscles activated and spending some quality time in the fresh air will make you feel good. The Northern Sierra  
Nevada covered in great snow is so wonderful you won’t believe it. This ski resort has 8 different ski lifts, and they are cool to take a ride with. This ski hill receives so much beautiful snow, 29 feet every season, and that is one of the reasons this is such a great ski hill. The skiing and the snowboarding in California is so much fun all winter long. You could be into skiing or snowboarding, or both, doesn't matter, in this general area, you'll come across scores of ski resorts. Homewood has a good pick of trails to fit all abilities; it won’t leave anyone bored. There are loads of perfect places to stay to choose from, but you'd better book previous to going in view of the fact that these places to stay fill up quickly.
