Halloweekend at Homewood

It’s Back & Spookier than Ever!

When the sun goes down the goblins, ghosts, and ghouls come out during Halloweekends at Homewood Mountain Resort Oct. 21-24. Join us for a peak-to-shore fright-fest featuring spooky fun for the whole family. Take a stroll through the trick-or-treat village at South Base featuring free scary movie showings, face painting, pumpkin decorating, and surprises from local vendors. For a truly terrifying experience, join us at dusk for a chilling chairlift ride – if you dare! Try not to scream as the Quail Chair whisks you through one haunted scene after another – but rider beware, the only way out is riding the chairlift back down to the bottom!

Scare Disclosure: If you have little ones who are easily frightened, we recommend planning to ride the chairlift before dusk (3:00 – 6:00 pm), as it’ll be a “high scare factor” once the sun sets. At the base area, the festival itself is suited for all ages.

Entry into the festival is FREE. Haunted chairlifts rides are an additional fee and tickets can be purchased online in advance.

Event Schedule

Family Activities + Chair Lift Rides:  Activities for the entire family! Pumpkin painting, face painting, pin the boo on the ghost, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, trick-or-treat village, and more! PLUS, enjoy chairlift rides all day long, but rider beware, the chairlift is haunted after 7pm.

Haunted Chairlift Rides + Haunted House: Try not to scream as the Quail Chair whisks you through one haunted scene after another – but first, walk through Homewood’s haunted house.

Treats (Food and Beverage): Fall treats will be available each day and will include caramel apples, pie slices, popcorn balls and more. We will also be firing up the grill and serving hamburgers, hot dogs and a variety of other grilled goodies each day.
