Homewood Mountain Resort offers over 2,000 acres of the best skiing and snowboarding terrain in the Lake Tahoe region. From groomed boulevards to trademark hidden powder stashes, Homewood has it all. And with Ellis Peak sheltering the entire mountain from the high-ridge winds, the term “wind hold” is almost unheard of at Homewood.
