Resort Overview
Homewood is one of the closest Lake Tahoe resorts to the lake itself. The views are fantastic as a result, and since the resort is smaller than most of its counterparts there are lesser crowds to be found.

It is not a ski hill, however, and it does offer 100 runs and over 1600 feet of vertical change. Join the locals here for great vistas and a moderately sized mountain to explore.
