With an average snowfall of around 450 inches per season, and a whopping 300 days of sunshine per year, it's no wonder that SKI Magazine ranked Homewood amongst the Top 10 resorts in California and Nevada in 2012. Homewood is known for it's hidden powder stashes, wind protected chairs and sheltered tree runs - in fact Homewood did not have any wind holds during the 2015/16 winter season.

Homewood Snowcat Adventures

Homewood Snowcat Adventures will debut this winter on backcountry terrain on the flanks of Ellis Peak, above the resort’s traditional ski area boundary. Once transported to the summit, groups of up to 10 skiers and riders will enjoy guided access to a wide variety of terrain options – from perfectly-spaced tree runs to steeps, powder bowls and intermediate-level glades – all leading guests back to the in-bounds terrain at the resort.

Homewood's snowmaking system covers approximately 126 acres of terrain at the resort, mostly in and around the North Lodge beginner area, extending up the Lombard Street and The Face runs, as well as the South Lodge beginner area and the Homeward Bound run. Homewood's snowmaking activities typically take place at night or in the early morning, when conditions permit; however, daytime operations are possible, and the locations of Homewood's snow guns are subject to change based on conditions. Snowmaking operations typically begin early in the season in November, December and January, and continue throughout the winter season as required, subject to conditions being right for snowmaking and dependent on the degree of natural snowfall.
