With online lift ticket specials offered daily throughout winter, Homewood is also known for offering Tahoe’s most beautiful price – guaranteed.

    Why is the discounted lift ticket ($74) more expensive than the one you can get on the website?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      This is the lift ticket price Homewood has made available for us to sell. Once their mountain is fully open, I doubt their prices will be as cheap on

      • Cody Madayag

        looking to go boarding this sunday 1/24 use my free lift ticket and purchase some additional. the discount on Snowbomb is for $74 the price as of today on is $62 such BS. what a bogus way to get member to purchase a snowbomb pass when inevitably your up charging your pass members. I’ve already posted a few reviews and am looking to lodge a formal complaint.

        • SnowBomb_CA

          As stated above, these are prices provided by Homewood, and are a very minor part of the Platinum Pass. If you find it cheaper through Homewood, by all means take that price.

          Your complaints are noted and passed on. Considering they are an attempt at stating a moral high-road, and you require no assistance, there is no point in complaining on this subject anymore.

  • SnowBomb_CA

    That is correct.

  • There appears to be a typo in the definition of “Holiday dates”. I assume “12/31/16” should be “12/31/15”.

    Does this mean that New Year’s weekend (1/1/16-1/3/16) is not blacked out as a Holiday Date?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      Correct, that was a typo. 1/1/16 and 1/3/16 will be valid dates. Not 1/2/16 however, as it is a Saturday.

  • David Beasley

    So just clarify, will the platinum ticket be good for tomorrow 1/1/16?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      That is correct.

  • AwdSyco Subaru

    How can I get Homewood free ticket?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      Hi there,
      If you have a Platinum Pass account, you can access your Homewood ticket in the “Platinum Pass Deals” section of your account.

  • Joe Daimyo

    Can I use all 4 tickets on 1 resort on the same day?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      Hi there,
      Unfortunately you can not do that. There is only 1 lift ticket to each of 4 resorts. They must be used at those resorts, and are all only intended for the 1 account holder.

      • Joe Daimyo

        How about the 1 free lift ticket? Am i able to give it to someone else or is the free lift ticket still intended for the account holder?

  • john

    I have a 6 years old, do I need to buy a pass for her as well. Can we book Grand Sierra on 2 different dates if we have two passes?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      You will need to purchase a pass for her if you want the lift tickets. Yes, you can book an additional stay with your 2nd pass.

      Sometimes the resort has packages for kids that include the lift ticket, rentals and lessons. That might be worth checking out for her too.

  • Amrita

    I have bought a platinum pass already. And I have homewood ski ticket. I wanted to know if I could trade the lift ticket for a beginner group lesson at homewood?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      Hi Amrita,

      Unfortunately you cannot. The Platinum Pass deal is for a lift ticket only at Homewood.

      • Amrita

        Thanks for getting back.

  • PAUL

    Are Platinum Passes still available? Where and how much?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      Hi Paul,

      There will not be a Platinum Pass available this season. All deals will be made through the Ski and Board Festivals.

  • jen

    Could you tell me if the snowbomb pass is available for 2017?

    • SnowBomb_CA

      Hi Jen,
      Unfortunately there will not be. Stay tuned for next seasons Ski & Board Festivals.
