Default Can I get input on Homewood Resort?

I just won a pair of tickets to Homewood. I ride & my gf skis. Neither of us have been to Tahoe for snow sports, what can I expect? I did a little searching online & saw a couple videos & the mountain layout, but can someone give me their input who has been there before or rides there regularly? Are the conditions good enough to warrant the drive from SoCal, or should I consider selling the discounts at a discounted price to pay for tickets at a local resort?

I wouldn't drive from SoCal just to go to Homewood but if you have free tickets it might be worth it if you could spend a day there and also ride a second day somewhere else.

Make a trip out of it, use those free tickets one day then hit one of the bigger resorts as well.

Homewood is a fun I guess what used to be mom and pop hill. It's where I cut my teeth. Overall, I agree with the others, in that I wouldn't just go to Tahoe to ride there alone. Squaw and Alpine are close by. For a little more effort you can get to the Donner Summit Areas. Sugar bowl would top my list of places to visit over there. Kirkwood is another spot on the south side that is worth visiting. The only thing that compares to Tahoe in California is the Mammoth area.

I appreciate the information! My gf is having a lumpectomy & possible partial mastectomy (news to both of us & we're hoping the lump is benign) this week, so she may be out for the season recovering (hopefully not though). In the event she is, I'll likely sell the tickets so I can buy a ticket or 2 locally & ride without her. Hoping for a quick healing & recovery. With all the snow Tahoe is getting right now I wish I could be up there to enjoy it, but I can't leave here down in SoCal. If any of you are interested, I'm more than open to offers
