SNOW & CONDITIONS REPORT
Good morning skiers and snowboarders!
What a day to ski and ride in Lake Tahoe! Forecasts are calling for full sun with calm winds from the east and a high of 51 degrees, making for a perfect day to head on up to the mountain. Groomers have been fantastic, views are hard to beat and the skiing is smooth – we hope you can join us!
With weather like this, it’s the best time to bring your crew to Homewood! Check out the all new Family and Friends 5 Pack, good for any 5 people on any 5 days of the 2019/20 season – plus you can save up to 45%!
On March 7th the Community Cup returns to Homewood with a whole new look and feel. We’re on the quest to find the fastest skier or rider on the West Shore so we’re hosting a head-to-head tournament style dual slalom to determine the Community Cup Champion. Be sure to sign up today because this is an event you don’t want to miss out on.
Ellis chairlift is closed for the season due to mechanical issues, see below for additional details. Terrain can be accessed via Old Homewood Express. To return to the base, skiers and riders are encouraged to use Homeward Bound and catch the shuttle back to North Base.
We are disappointed to report the Ellis chairlift has experienced a series of mechanical issues that will prevent its operation for the remainder of the season. The terrain accessed by the Ellis chair will continue to be open as conditions permit, with lift access provided by the Old Homewood Express. For those skiers and riders who choose to explore this terrain and ski down to the resort’s South base area, we have added shuttles to our fleet that will operate continuously for the duration of the season to provide transport back to the North base area. Another option for advanced skiers / riders is to take the Coyote Road, located directly below the bottom of Ellis Chair, back to North Base by hiking or skating. This alternate route will bring skiers / riders from the bottom of Ellis Chair back to the North Base. Note that this route does require hiking or skating and is for advanced skiers / riders only.
