From groomed boulevards to our trademark hidden powder stashes, Homwood has it all. And with Ellis Peak sheltering our entire mountain from the high-ridge winds, the term "wind hold" is barely ever heard around Homewoods.


With an average snowfall of around 450 inches per season, and a whopping 300 days of sunshine per year, it's no wonder that SKI Magazine readers ranked Homewood as one of the Top 10 ski resorts in California and Nevada in 2012.

  • There's only parking for like 50 cars, so don't come up and ruin my retreat from big crowds. The views of the lake are like no other, it's about a 170° view. Stop by the summit Cafe for a beer and maybe a snack and enjoy a great view of the lake on their porch. Some of the best trail riding though the woods, great powder when it's good. Careful though, you can get lost in Backcountry.
  • Nice pit stop for lunch, friendly people, when driving through Lake Tahoe in the fall.
