Homewood’s unbeatable views are provided by it’s close proximity to Lake Tahoe. With a mere distance of 280 steps, Madden Chair is the nearest chairlift to the lake in the entire basin.
After a long day on the slopes skiers and riders can walk across the street to the West Shore Cafe for FREE Lakeside S’mores from 4:00 to 4:30 pm Fridays through Mondays through the winter.
During the summer, boaters receive complimentary boat valet when visiting the West Shore Cafe & Inn for a dining experience.
Take a cruise down our 2-mile signature beginner run Rainbow Ridge and experience panoramic views of both North & South Lake Tahoe while skiing down to the lake.
All aboard! We’re thrilled to introduce a new way to commute to the mountain. We’ve teamed up with Lake Tahoe Bleu Wave to offer an incredible peak to shore experience for our guests.

Ski peak-to-shore-to-lake, all in the same competition! This spring event brings out the best of both snow & waterskiing in one dynamic contest.
