Great place to learn how to ski, not for the skiing enthusiast. It's a great place to teach your kids, or a loved one how to ski. If you need help learning, we highly recommend taking a lesson from one of the instructors or have the kids join ski school for the day. The lodge is also a great place... More

Lots of fun tubing. Employees were super friendly. Would definitely do it again. Lanes were long and FAST. Nice lift contraption so don't have to walk back up hill.

With the winter being so mild, conditions were fair. Not the fault of the resort. Zip line looked fun and trails good for beginners or older folk.

Great if staying at the resort or if a beginner skier wanting to learn. Nice staff, decent rental equipment. Not crowded and short lift lines. Most difficult terrain is really just a single blue at max and that terrain is short lived until turns back to green.

The Homestead offers night skiing on the weekends which is so much fun! The mountain is beautiful at night with the snow glistening in the lights. It was not very crowded; you can ski down and get right back on the lift with no waiting. We also enjoyed a cocktail in the ski area bar. What a wonderful way to... More

We have been here a few times to teach our daughter's how to ski and felt it was a great environment for beginners. It is very limited on the runs it offers which keeps the masses away. The chair lift is pretty slow which is great for new skiers. The on chair lift allows you to get off part way... More

This is a small local ski spot . It is perfect for beginners and moderate skiers. They also have a snow tubing hill that is great for kids.
