Welcome to the Magical West Shore… One of the best ski areas for intermediate skiing and especially children is Homewood Mountain Resort. But get ready for potentially big changes. A developer owns the ski area, and the lakefront West Shore Cafe + Hotel plus they bought the High & Dry Marina. They have plans for a major expansion. In general the shady West Shore neighborhoods here include a mix of Old Tahoe Cabins and luxury homes. Approximately 6 miles from Tahoe City along Hwy 89, Homewood also offers easy access to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts. This quaint little neighborhood has a country store and two marinas. Bikes can be rented for a leisurely ride along the bike trails or through the wooded neighborhoods.
