Winter 2018/2019 What’s New at Homewood Mountain Resort –




Lake Tahoe Resort Continues to Offer Incredible Value; Lift Tickets Start at $49

HOMEWOOD, Calif. (Nov. 1, 2018) – Located on Lake Tahoe’s west shore, Homewood Mountain Resort continues to offer skiers and riders access to uncrowded slopes, incredible ski terrain and the best value in the region with lift tickets starting at just $49. Ahead of the 2018-19 winter season, the resort has invested in on-mountain improvements that include new portable snowmaking equipment, upgrades to its snowmaking automation, and top-to-bottom brush clearing on trails under the Madden and Ellis chairlifts. A new cab for the snowcat used to transport guests participating in the resort’s guided Snowcat Adventures to the backcountry terrain located just outside the resort’s boundary was also purchased.

“Our team is focused on creating memorable experiences for skiers and riders every time they visit Homewood,” said Kevin Mitchell, general manager of Homewood Mountain Resort. “We anticipate the improvements we made ahead of this season will allow us to open more terrain sooner, and the events we have planned will add to the fun, relaxed vibe guests will find when they visit Homewood.”

In addition, this season resort guests can also expect:

Tahoe Fusion Food Truck at the Big Blue View Bar

The Tahoe Fusion Food Truck will find a new home at Homewood’s Big Blue View Bar this winter. Resort guests who stop at the Tahoe Fusion Food Truck this winter will enjoy unmatched views of Lake Tahoe and a new menu created by West Shore Café’s executive chef Robb Wyss. Highlights will include specialty house-made burritos like the Philly cheese steak burrito, orange chicken burrito, Mediterranean burrito and more.

The Very Best Day to Learn How to Ski and Ride

Any day of the season is a great day to learn to ski or ride, but on January 21, 2019, first-timers are invited to join Homewood Mountain Resort for a day that will include ski lesson specials, complimentary hot chocolate, s’mores and live music at the bottom of the mountain.

First Tracks Breakfast

Early birds looking for the freshest snow are invited to Homewood’s First Tracks Breakfast events on January 26, February 10 and March 3, 2019. Free for Homewood season passholders, First Tracks Breakfasts include a hot breakfast and coffee from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., then the ability to load the Madden Chair as early as 8 a.m. to ski off the Old Homewood Express before the general public is allowed to begin loading at 9 a.m. Non-passholders can join the fun by purchasing the First Tracks Breakfast Package. For $99, the package includes a lift ticket, breakfast and early access.

Community Cup Race Series

This season, Homewood will introduce a new community race series modeled after summer club sport leagues. Held on three Mondays throughout the season, the series requires no previous race experience and will be open to all skier levels. Participants (ages 21+) will be required to register in teams, and races will take place off the Happy Platter beginner lift, where cold beer will be served at the bottom of the course. The Community Cup will take place February 11, February 25 and March 11, 2019 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Third Annual Beer & Gear

Homewood’s annual Beer & Gear test event returns March 16 & 17, 2019 with a new twist. Participating ski and snowboard brands will be matched with a brewery to create a ski and sip pairing. Equipment demos will be offered free, lift tickets and beer will be available for purchase.
