Peak-to-shore ‘spook-fest’ to feature haunted chairlift rides, Trick-or-Treat village with haunted house, face painting, pumpkin decorating, and more.
Sponsored by the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, Homewood Mountain Resort’s family-friendly “Halloweekend” fright fest returns October 21-24, 2021. Featuring a Trick-or-Treat village complete with face painting, pumpkin decorating, family games, festive foods, and a haunted house, there’s something for everyone. Scenic and “haunted” chairlift rides will also be offered Thursday through Sunday nights.
“Our inaugural ‘Halloweekend’ in 2019 was so much fun for the community we decided to bring it back this fall. Halloween is a staff favorite holiday at Homewood and West Shore Cafe, and we’re excited to continue the festivities including a haunted house and other family fun this year.”
– Kevin Mitchell, Homewood Mountain Resort general manager
Halloweekend will kick off with “The Haunting” at West Shore Café on Thursday, October 21 at 6 pm. This Halloween dinner experience won’t be for the faint of heart.

Expect killer cocktails, swamp juice, treacle tarts, bat wings, cauldrons of eyeballs, and finger foods. $125 per person plus tax and gratuity. Dinner will be seated at 7:30 pm. Reservations are required and can be made online in advance.
