The iconic Omni Homestead Resort offers a comfortable, relaxed, and uncrowded snow sports area ideal for novice skiers and riders. The Penguin Slides Tubing Park, adjacent to the ski hill, offers fun for all ages, while the mini snowmobiles track entertains kids 6-12 years old. Located in the scenic Allegheny Mountains, the resort offers more than 30 activities throughout the year including golf on two championship courses, horseback riding, archery, falconry, trap, skeet, sporting clays, fly fishing and an expansive Spa.
Despite its southern location, the Homestead receives an average annual snowfall of 50 inches, which the resort supplements with snowmaking. Home to the Sepp Kober Ski School, The Omni Homestead maintains an experienced team of ski and snowboard instructors who offer private lessons for all levels.
For a spectacular view of the valley, head to the top of Upper Main run. It is just steep enough to provide a bit of confidence building for beginners.
