About the Ski Resort

Homewood Mountain Resort is located on the beautifully forested west shore of California's Lake Tahoe. Reflected in the water of one of the world's clearest lakes, rises the state's last unspoiled winter ski resort.

Homewood Mountain Resort is the only ski area whose lifts and runs begin within hundreds of feet of beautiful Lake Tahoe. No ski area can come close to the views you will find at this resort. Located literally across the street from the lake, Homewood is the closest resort to Lake Tahoe!

By upgrading facilities and adding new programs, Homewood Resort now provides a more exciting experience for its longtime enthusiasts and an appealing choice for newcomers.

The rustic town of Homewood surrounds the base of the ski resort. Here, one of Tahoe's grand mansions has been converted to a charming bed and breakfast, and a variety of other lodging, dining, shopping and recreation provide off-site enjoyment.

Of its 59 runs, 15 percent are beginner, 35 percent are advanced and 50 percent are in the vital intermediate category that contributes to Homewood's singular reputation for all-family recreation.

Homewood Mountain Resort, renowned for its incredible tree skiing, groomed runs and spectacular lake views, offers ski and snowboard equipment rentals, lessons, clinics and plenty of space to enjoy the thrills of these dynamic sports.

The resort hosts several snowboard competitions each season and Homewood was rated "Best Place to Snowboard" in a local poll. Outside Magazine once named Homewood as having the "Best Powder Tree Skiing."

Homewood Mountain Resort is conveniently located on Highway 89, five miles south of Tahoe City and 19 miles north of South Lake Tahoe.
