Homewood Offers Trans-Tahoe Cruise + Skiing for $99

Homewood Bleu Wave Ski Shuttle Cruise


HOMEWOOD, CA / ZEPHYR COVE, NV (Monday, Dec. 5, 2011) - New for winter 2011-2012, the Homewood Bleu Wave Ski Shuttle Cruise offers guests one of the most scenic and unique ski and snowboard experiences in the world. 

Offered at $99, guests receive a round-trip, trans-Tahoe cruise aboard the 72-foot, 49-passenger luxury cruise yacht, Tahoe Bleu Wave; and a full day of skiing and boarding at Homewood Mountain Resort.  The morning departure cruise offers continental breakfast fare such as pastries juice, and coffee, while the afternoon return offers classic après-ski beverages and appetizers.

Passengers depart from South Lake Tahoe’s historic Round Hill Pines Beach & Marina, enjoying the Tahoe Bleu Wave’s luxuriously comfortable amenities such as a fully stocked bar and fireplace, private lounge, stateroom, fly-bridge, oversized party bow, restrooms, and full climate-controlled indoor facilities; as well as one of the Tahoe region’s most quintessential scenic experiences – viewing the dramatic, snow-covered peaks from the water. 

“A cruise across Lake Tahoe is a truly unique experience itself; however when paired with renowned skiing just steps from the water, the experience is simply unforgettable – and available nowhere else on earth,” said Ryan Forvilly, owner of the Tahoe Bleu Wave.   

The arrival destination is Homewood Mountain Resort - deemed one of the country’s most scenic resorts by SKI Magazine for its unobstructed lake views and location at Tahoe’s west shore. Upon docking, guests are welcomed ashore at the West Shore Café & Inn’s 60-foot pier, located just steps from the chair lifts and slopes of Homewood.  Guests simply stroll to Homewood’s day lodge, while guest service representatives assist with ski or snowboard equipment.  Known for its “peak-to-shore” groomed trails, deep powder, and glade skiing, Homewood is often referred to as Tahoe’s most beautiful resort. 

During the day or prior to return departure, guests are also invited to enjoy lunch or early après-ski appetizers and cocktails at Homewood’s West Shore Café & Inn.  The picturesque, lakefront café offers a menu that draws from the best that California has to offer – fresh, seasonal produce, seafood and meats – prepared to accentuate the flavors inherent in each item.  In addition, the café’s happy hour offers guests half price on all appetizers and highlighted beverages from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. (Friday through Sunday); and half price on the entire menu and highlighted beverages starting at 3 p.m. every Monday.  

The Homewood Bleu Wave departs from the West Shore Café & Inn to South Lake Tahoe at 4 p.m., during which time guests can relax, enjoy the winter sunset, and sip a celebratory beverage. 

The Homewood Bleu Wave Ski Shuttle Cruise is offered every Friday, Saturday, and Monday throughout the ski season starting January 6, 2012.  South Lake Tahoe departure time is 8 a.m., with a 9 a.m. arrival at Homewood’s West Shore Café & Inn.  Return time is 4 p.m., with a 5 p.m. arrival at South Lake Tahoe.
