Dark Chairlift at night

Halloweekend at Homewood

When the sun goes down the goblins, ghosts, and ghouls come out during Halloweekends at Homewood Mountain Resort from 3 to 9 p.m. Oct. 25-27. 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 in advanced or the day of at the door.
