2020-21 What to Expect this Winter

WE’RE READY TO WELCOME YOU BACK TO WINTER.

Because you are reading this, we can only guess that you have been thinking about winter.

So have we. A lot. All summer in fact.

Our team has been working hard to make sure we are ready to safely welcome you back this season. And yes, things will be different, but we believe you are as excited and as eager as us to get back to winter. And while parts of our operations are changed, some things never will, like powder turns days after the storm, cruising down groomers on a bluebird day, and of course that signature lake view.

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS SEASON

Below is what we have planned going into the season – please know that some of these things may change as we get closer to opening. We will share periodic updates on operations and offerings.

OPENING DAY

Opening Day is scheduled for Friday, December 11, weather, and conditions permitting. We will be sharing updates as we get closer to that date.

Snow dances always help this data point.

FEWER SKIERS PER ACRE

Part of our operational plan this winter is to embrace something we have always been known for, fewer crowds. We will be limiting the number of skiers on the mountain daily and have also capped our season pass sales by 25%. With safety as a top priority this will allow us to ensure social distancing on the mountain and throughout our base areas.

We’re no rocket scientists, but we like to think that fewer skiers per acre could result in a higher percentage of powder turns?

PRIOR TO ARRIVAL

ONLINE PURCHASES ONLY
Sticking with our moto of “buy online in advance for the best price” – new this year, all tickets must be purchased online in advance with limited quantities available each day.

Lift tickets will not be available for purchase onsite..

PARKING RESERVATIONS REQUIRED
All lift ticket purchasers will be required to reserve their parking space every day they visit.

Season passholders – your season pass will essentially be your parking pass; but, keep an eye out, we will be providing additional information on how this will work prior to the season.

AT THE RESORT

FACEMASKS REQUIRED

Face coverings are mandatory at Homewood this winter.

This includes parking lots, both base areas, ticket kiosks, while on or around lifts, and indoors (except while seated to eat or drink). This requirement is not only to protect yourself but also to protect others around you including other guests and employees.

SAFETY AWARE

DETAILED COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES

Be patient. Be kind. 

We know it will take some adjusting to get used to these policies and procedures, and a lot of what is outlined will be different. Our team has a passion and love for sharing the mountains with you and we thank you for your understanding and flexibility going into the season.
