2020-21 What to Expect this Winter

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WINTER AT HOMEWOOD.

 

Update 3/15/2021: On March 14, the State of California announced that Placer County was eligible to transition from the state’s Purple Tier to the less restrictive Red Tier, which includes the following:
 

• Homewood will remain open for skiing and riding, as California has permitted ski resorts to continue to operate under our state-approved winter operating plans.

• Dining outlets including Big Blue View Bar and 89 Bar & Grill will be open for indoor dining at 25% capacity. Online ordering and takeout are still available.

• Our sister property, West Shore Cafe, will be open for indoor dining at 25% capacity in addition to outdoor seating with firepits. Takeout is still available.  The West Shore Cafe & Inn will continue to be open for lodging.

• Our retail location, Homewood Mountain Sports, will remain open with reduced capacity and continued safety protocols.

  • Masks and social distancing are still required throughout the resort – even if you have received the vaccine.
We want to thank all of our guests and staff for keeping our community safe this season. We believe that getting outside is important for mental and physical health and we cannot wait to see you on the slopes!

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS SEASON

Please know that some of these things may change throughout the season. We will share periodic updates on operations and offerings.

NOW OPEN

We are open for the 2020/21 winter season and cannot wait to have you ski/ride with us this winter! 

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..

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.
