HOMEWOOD, Calif. — Homewood Mountain Resort will be the latest Lake Tahoe ski area to benefit from a recent wave of storms to hit the Sierra Nevada.

The West Shore ski resort is set to open for skiing and riding Saturday, Dec. 20, according to Thursday announcement from the resort.

Homewood will offer limited, intermediate and advanced-level terrain on the upper mountain, as well as beginner slopes at the Children’s Center and North Lodge Magic Carpet surface lifts.

The cross-country area expects to open about 20 kilometers of trails, including Night Hawk, Rough Rider, North Fork, Pony Express, Lions leap, Sundance, Firewalker, Hastings, Crazy Horse and the road into and along the south side of the valley (out and back).

An opening date for Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area, however, has yet to be determined. The resort plans to open as soon as conditions permit.
