Homewood Mountain Resort, founded in 1961, is one of California’s first winter recreation resorts. Winner of the 2013 National Ski Areas Association Golden Eagle award and the 2013 California Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award for environmental stewardship, Homewood continues to offer premier winter skiing and snowboarding with a focus on guest service and unique vacation packages. Homewood is accessible via Interstate 80 to California State Route 89, just 55 miles from Reno Tahoe International Airport. The resort boasts 1,650 vertical feet, which rises from the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe to its 7,880’ summit elevation. The resort averages 450 inches of snowfall and 300 days of sunshine each year. While there are beginner terrain options (15%) and advanced terrain (35%), skiers and snowboarders often come to enjoy an abundance of intermediate terrain (50% of the mountain) while taking in the views of crystal clear Lake Tahoe.


West Shore Cafe and Inn offers six mountain-inspired lake-front guest rooms and suites that located only footsteps from the lifts. A variety of lodges, hotels, motels, inns, and private rentals are all also within driving distance of the ski area. Some properties offer ski and stay packages; call ahead for information.


The Ski & Snowboard School offers beginner to advanced classes for the young and the young-at-heart no matter what the ability level. First timers will get a jump start on learning the sport, while experienced skiers and riders can take their skills to the next level, all in Lake Tahoe's most beautiful setting. Whether looking for an amazing ski and snowboard experience, or just someone to ski with, there is a program for everyone. The rental department carries a full range of ski and snowboard equipment, as well as an extensive offering of demo skis. An extensive offering of ski and snowboard apparel and equipment can be purchased in Homewood Mountain Sports, also located at the resort. For summer visitors, bike, SUP and Kayak rentals, are also available, along with motorized rentals, such as jet skis and boats.

Area Recreation

For those seeking winter activities beyond alpine skiing and snowboarding, there is the nearby cross country course at Sugar Pine State Park, as well as almost endless opportunities for snowshoeing.
