|About these ratings|
According to skiers, this small, homey resort on Lake Tahoe's west shore (about 7 miles south of Tahoe City) is far more manageable than nearby titans like Squaw Valley and Heavenly Resort. Sitting on more than 2,000 acres, Homewood only features 64 runs and eight lifts. But its laid-back atmosphere and spectacular scenery impress visitors time and again. "If you're a decent skier (not beginner) you're going to love Homewood. It's a beautiful spot to ski at with some of the best views of Lake Tahoe of any place I've skied in this area," according to one TripAdvisor user. "Very low key — not super fancy — but if you're a real skier you don't care!"
Homewood is also the perfect spot for those of you trying to do Lake Tahoe on a budget as lift tickets are much cheaper than those at other nearby resorts. Plus, you can save a few extra dollars by buying tickets online.
What's more, Homewood offers plenty of things to do in the warmer months as well. The resort's summer activities include everything from stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking on Lake Tahoe to hiking and biking and drive-in movies on the mountain.
