Adult Ski & Snowboard Lessons

Update: Construction Activity in the North Lodge Parking Lot

You may have noticed the abundance of activity and construction equipment currently staged in our North Lodge parking lot.  While we did recently announce progress in the planning phase of our Master Plan, this activity is entirely seperate.  As a service to the community, Homewood Mountain Resort has leased our parking lot to the engineering and construction companies responsible for the improvement projects taking place on Highway 89.  This helps to keep the equipment off of the highway as well as to concentrate the staging areas for equipment and resources into a centralized area.  It is our hope that these efforts will help ensure that visitors and locals alike are still able to experience the beauty and tranquility that makes Lake Tahoe so special, even whilst these improvement projects are happening.  Should you have any quesitons or concerns about this activity, please feel free to contact Guest Services at 530-525-2992.
