Homewood Ski Resort Review

With the slopes starting just hundreds of feet from Lake Tahoe, Homewood Ski Resort is one of the most scenic ski resorts in the world. You are literally skiing down the slopes with the view of the lake below you. Homewood Mountain Resort is located on the west shore of Lake Tahoe in California.

Homewood is one hour from Reno, two hours from Sacramento and three hours from San Francisco. It is just six miles from Tahoe City and nineteen miles north of South Lake Tahoe.

To ask questions about your next trip call them at 530-525-2992. The snow phone is 530-525-2900. The season at Homewood is December through mid April. The resort services include lessons, rentals, repair shop, retail store and a day lodge.

The skiing at Homewood Ski Resort is a good mix of intermediate and expert runs, 59 in all. Some of them, although somewhat short, can be very steep. But overall it is not real challenging for an expert skier but a wonderful place for beginners and intermediates. The overall mix is 15% beginner, 35% advanced and 50% intermediate.

The mountain is serviced by eight lifts, 2 quad chairs, 3 triple chairs and 4 surface lifts. The resort covers twelve hundred and sixty acres and has a one thousand six hundred fifty foot vertical rise.

Aside from the astounding scenery Homewood is best know for it's affordable prices. They don't have all the amenities of the bigger resorts, not do they have the best snow in California, but they do have prices that allow an entire family to get out and enjoy a pleasant day of skiing.

Along with the affordable prices you will probably not see any lift lines or excessive traffic. What you will see are breathtaking views of the lake and plenty of friendly faces.

Eating at the ski resort can be one of the best parts of the trip. They take great pride in the South Lodge Patio BBQ, with some of the best top sirloin steaks and oak fried half chickens. A warm drink and a sit by the fire in the South Lodge Bar is a favorite for many visitors.

The North Patio BBQ is open on weekends with burgers, dogs and much more. The Ridge Pub is located at the North lodge where you can watch one of several flat screen TV's while enjoying drinks and appetizers. The Mid Mountain Pavilion serves drinks and sandwiches and offers a view that compares to none.

One of the more popular ways to truly enjoy the South Lodge is to enroll your kids in the Snow Sports Center. They can learn to ski while you look on with your favorite drink in hand.

The Children's Center has the Snow Ranger Academy where kids 4-12 are taught the fundamentals of skiing. They have their own little ski run, just for the students. Children's private lessons are also available.

There is no overnight lodging at Homewood Ski Resort but there is a shuttle from nearby Tahoe City. To arrange for this service call 530-525-2992 and give them twenty four hours notice.
