About the Ski Resort

The Homestead was the South's first ski destination.

The ski area is a great place for family gatherings. It offers nine runs over 45 acres for skiing and snowboarding enjoyment, complete snowmaking capabilities, Olympic-size skating rink, full rental and equipment sales, a fireside lodge and a staff of professional European ski and skate instructors for individual and group clinics.

Snowboarders will enjoy Homestead's Snowboard Park and half-pipe built just for them. The 260 feet above ground half-pipe is 20 feet wide with six feet high walls and is served by a T-bar lift. It offers snowboard features and hits. Rentals and lessons are available.

Homestead guests may enjoy the resort's many facilities and services. Options include the naturally warmed waters of the indoor pool, aroma and massage therapy in the historic Homestead Spa, use of the fitness center, tenpin bowling, group aerobics, horseback and carriage rides, nightly movies, dancing and a cozy collection of sitting and gathering areas featuring board and table games. The Homestead also features an 18-hole golf course.

There are a number of ski packages, including accommodations, breakfast and dinner daily and one full day of lift tickets for every night of stay.
