Take the trail less traveled, every lap of the day. Homewood Snowcat Adventures accesses over 750 acres of backcountry terrain on the flanks of Ellis Peak, above the resort’s traditional ski area boundary.
All-day packages with Homewood Snowcat Adventures feature a small group (9 skier/rider max) and a fully guided experience in the out-of-bounds terrain accessed by the snowcat. Once transported to the peak, you’ll 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. Participants enjoy laps with 1,824′ vertical from the top of Ellis Peak – where panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the Desolation Wilderness await – to the bottom of the Old Homewood Express chairlift.
Note that we only offer full group snowcat buyouts for the 2019/20 season.
