We loved homewood, having skied all the big resorts this the low key, family centered was just lovely. No boarders or skiers 'tearing' it up which was important to us as we were skiing with our children who are only in their second year. No...More

How about you announce the road is closed to your ski area before we have to re-route? Well since it's only two hours the other way who cares. I guess Homewood could give a refund, but that takes the criminality out of the equation. What...More

Outstanding views and the terrain was a nice surprise. Good variety from beginner to expert. A big issue are the lifts. S. l..o..w..e..s..t lifts ever. Makes it an unlikely return visit.

There is no dedicated sled slopes. They may, once a while, groom areas around the base for sledding. But need to call to confirm. And that usually is off peak days.
