Homewood Mountain Resort to host twilight ski and St. Patrick’s Day celebration

HOMEWOOD, Calif. — Homewood Mountain Resort will host a St. Patrick’s Day celebration Saturday, March 17, featuring the St. Patty’s Twilight Ski. Guests are invited to hit the slopes 4-7 p.m. via the Quail triple chair, in addition to daytime skiing and riding. “There’s nothing quite as beautiful as the sunset’s alpenglow over Lake Tahoe from the slopes of Homewood,” said Kent Hoopingarner, general manager of Homewood Mountain Resort. “The St. Patty’s Twilight Ski is something special that we hope every skier and rider will enjoy; and the day’s live music and great food will make for a party to truly remember.” Live music by Jelly Bread welcomes guests of all ages to dance the afternoon away under the giant St. Patrick’s Day party tent at the South Lodge patio 3-6:30 p.m. Self-described, Jelly bread is the combination of a pumping rhythm section, an award-winning singer/songwriter influenced by Ben Harper/John Butler point of view; rootsy funk/rock guitar licks with a bit of dirt under the nails; vocal harmonies that add textures as rough as sandpaper and soft as velvet. One lucky guest will find Homewood’s “Pot O’ Gold.” Hidden on the slopes of Homewood and ready to be found between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., the Homewood Pot O’ Gold will contain treasures such as a lift ticket three-pack, a 2012/2013 season pass, and a West Shore Caf andamp; Inn gift card. Guests will receive hints as to the Pot O’ Gold’s whereabouts on the Homewood Facebook page on St. Patrick’s Day.In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day revelry, Homewood’s full bar will feature a bevy of green libations to please any guest’s inner leprechaun, including green beer, Green Bull cocktails (a.k.a. Red Bull mixed drinks), and many others. No St. Patrick’s Day would be complete without corned beef and cabbage, and Homewood’s South Lodge will offer the celebrated special from noon into the evening.Commemorative I shamrock Homewood T-shirts will be available as well.The St. Patty’s Twilight Ski welcomes all Homewood 2011/2012 Saturday-access season pass holders; as well as full- or half-day Homewood ticket holders on March 17. Guests who arrive at 4 p.m. or later for the St. Patty’s Twilight Ski may purchase a special $29 evening lift ticket.
