Huge snowfall totals in February have led Homewood Mountain to extend its ski season to April 21.
Like many Tahoe ski resorts, Homewood Mountain had a huge February, with storms arriving regularly. As of March 6, 540 inches of snow had already fallen on the slopes at Homewood Mountain. The resort announced it plans to extend the winter season by two weeks, pushing its scheduled closing day to April 21, weather and conditions permitting.
“Thanks to the tremendous snowfall we’ve experienced so far, we are excited to extend our season two more weeks this winter,” said Kevin Mitchell, general manager of Homewood Mountain Resort. “We want everyone to take advantage of the great season and buying a Homewood 2019/20 season pass this spring will allow guests to do that – by skiing free the rest of this season, along with all of next year.
