Great Skiing!

We enjoyed the ski facilities at the Omni Homestead Resort. It was well maintained, well groomed and not too crowded. We look forward to next time.

The actual ski area is really just one run with a few offshoots. A perfect hill for a first time skier but a intermediate or advanced skier will tire of the run within a day(or less). The ski run is access by a very slow two chair that can get crowded on weekends or holidays(as I discovered). The staff is... More

Basically, there's one slope, with one double lift that will drop skiers off halfway up if they don't want to ski the steeper section of the hill. I took my five-year old and 14-year old, and both had fun. We were there Presidents' Day weekend, and the snow was very good. Crowds were manageable. The slope is actually fairly long... More

I'm use to skiing in Colorado. This is Virginia skiing. It's great for my novice kiddos. They've gained so much confidence skiing on these gentle forgiving slopes. They even talked about how the lift operators knew their names. This is not for big skiers, but it's perfect for some fun. Great staff - can't say enough about them

Don't come for the Ski Area. Its is a great resort in general and has tons of character and wonderful amenities. And, the Ski area is good for occupying the kids or finding something to do one afternoon. But, this is not a ski resort.

The whole family had a great time tubing. Both my teenagers took a skiing class since it was my sons first time skiing and my daughter second time skiing. My daughters like out of ski class because she said it was a waste of time . But my son stuck with it because I made him . After that they... More

It was 9-3 with lunch, tix, and rental included. A fabulous deal for the $ and instructors were very kind and helpful. My children left asking if they could ski more days.

The tubing is reasonably priced by the hour. The young men that were running the tubing enjoyed their job and were so friendly. The scenery is breathtaking. They have a conveyor system that takes you up the hill on your tube. We came here while we were staying at the Homestead and it just added to an already wonderful visit.
