With an average snowfall of around 450 inches per season, and a whopping 300 days of sunshine per year, it's no wonder that SKI Magazine readers ranked Homewood as one of the Top 10 ski resorts in California and Nevada in 2012.

  • Great resort for me to get back on skies after almost 10 years. I liked the green slopes and even some blues. The snow was fabulous and everything was beautiful. It snowed on and off all day.
