Bottom Line

Homewood Mountain Resort offis further afield than the other Lake Tahoe resorts. Off the beaten path, Homewood provides an experience that differs greatly than the larger, more heavily populated resorts in the vicinity. If it’s a beautiful atmosphere with excellent skiing and very short waits to get on the slopes, then Homewood is the place to stay. Since Homewood is significantly less well-known than the more well-heeled resorts in the area, it is also less crowded and significantly more affordable. The skiing at Homewood is second to none, and the family atmosphere means that all members of the family will enjoy their stay. Homewood is family-friendly and doesn’t frown on rambunctious children, and the entire family is encouraged to find their own path to happiness.
