Full review

I learned to ski at The Homestead 25 years ago and I still love to ski. I find The Homestead to be so convenient to the Roanoke area. The runs were groomed to perfection last weekend; when the sun hit them, the snow was like velvet at the top. I have been skiing top to bottom mountain runs there every weekend since Christmas. I hope it's made me ready for a week of skiing at Lake Tahoe which is where I'm skiing next week. The Homestead is still the jewel of a resort that Sepp created so many years ago. The staff is always ready to help in any way they can; it's never crowded and no lift lines. I only wish that skiing were less expensive, but I can't think of anything else that gives me more fun for my money.
