Sitting on Lake Tahoe, Homewood has some of the most incredible views and is often the least crowded resort in the Tahoe region. The slow lifts and smaller crowds see better turns even days after a storm. With just one hotel here, it's best to stay in a vacation rental or find accommodation in Tahoe City or Truckee where there are more options.

Homewood is a hidden gem by all definitions. When it snow it DUMPS and relatively empty. Not the most advanced area in the region but very under-rated. There will be stop and go traffic on the way to Squaw/Alpine but can find empty parking lots in Homewood. Find Ellis chair, go left for a bit, and then drop down into the trees to find freshies ALL... More

Don't go to Homewood. Especially on storm days when Squaw and Alpine are shut down. Nope. Nothing to see here at Homewood ona a storm day. Keep on moving and ignore Homewood. ... More

Homewood is lake Tahoes diamond in the Rough, a big resort that offers some really good tree skiing/riding, love that homewood is not usually as crowded and has really fun terrain to ride in. The staff is friendly and the only thing that would make this place better would be if they expanded their parking lot and upgraded the speed of their chairs.... More
