HOMEWOOD, Calif. – Sept. 5, 2017 – There’s a lot to look forward to as the 2017-18 winter season approaches. At Lake Tahoe’s Homewood Mountain Resort, environmentally-conscious snow grooming technology, new season pass perks and a new website that makes trip planning easy top the list of “what’s new.”
“We look forward to the return of winter, and to welcoming our guests back to Homewood,” said Kevin Mitchell, general manager of Homewood Mountain Resort. “While our guests tell us they love the ‘old Tahoe’ charm of the resort, we’ve identified areas where we have opportunities to both enhance their experience and add value to their lift ticket or season pass purchases. We’re excited to offer them access to Silverton, Brundage and Red Lodge Mountain this season, and to offering a high quality snow surface thanks to the addition of our new PistenBully snow groomer. As far as we’re concerned, the snow can’t start falling soon enough!”
Here’s what’s new for the 2017-18 winter season at Homewood Mountain Resort:
PistenBully 400 4F Snow Groomer Features Latest Emission Control Technology
To enhance the resort’s snow grooming capabilities and offer skiers and riders access to impeccably groomed slopes, a new PistenBully 400 4F will join Homewood’s fleet ahead of the 2017-18 winter season. The latest model from PistenBully offers high performance snow grooming functionality and achieves strict Tier 4 environmental emissions standards as stipulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.
