Skiing and snowboarding in California is typically a mellow affair. The sun is usually shining and, with Homewood's proximity to Lake Tahoe, the views are magnificent.
But when snow storms blow through the Tahoe basin, shutting down operations at other ski resorts due to high winds, Homewood's wind-protected slopes and lifts typically keep on offering up world-class powder and tree skiing all day long. It's why many locals who have passes to other Tahoe resorts also buy a Homewood pass - so they can ski/ride great pow on stormy days.

We promise we'll run all of our chair lifts everyday we're open this season, weather and conditions permitting. And with Homewood's wind-protected slopes, that's typically every day of the season.
Plan ahead to save
Storms don't just spring up out of nowhere, and dedicated skiers and riders are typically tracking the long-range weather forecasts via their favorite weather sites daily (if not hourly) when a storm bringing fresh powder to Tahoe. So don't get caught paying full price for your Homewood lift ticket at the window. Buy your lift tickets online before midnight and you'll save $8!
