Homewood Mountain Resort to open on Saturday

HOMEWOOD, Calif. (AP) ” Homewood Mountain Resort is joining the list of Sierra ski areas opening their slopes for skiers and boarders.

Five groomed runs will be available offering terrain ranging from beginner through advanced starting Saturday.

“The mountain has had great success with making snow, due to very cold overnight temperatures,” said Kent Hoopingarner, general manager and COO. “Snowmaking efforts, combined with the snow accumulation of last week’s storm, have given the mountain the conditions we’ve been waiting for to provide guests with a great experience,” he added.

The runs will be open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
