Skiing is almost an afterthought at the Homestead, a resort packed with year-round activities, whose history dates back to 1766. Located in the scenic Allegheny Mountains, the ski area at the Homestead is relatively small, with just ten trails and a historically short season. Trails are usually uncrowded, though, and the Homestead has a reputation as being an excellent place to learn skiing.
Despite its southern location, the Homestead receives an average annual snowfall of 50 inches, which the resort supplements with snowmaking. If you don’t want to ski, you’ll find other winter-time activities such as ice skating and a snow tubing park. Or you can relax and take a spa day at the resort’s on-site spa — the Homestead is famous for its wellness services and all-natural mineral springs.
