After adding a brand new snowmaking system last season, The Homestead Resort in Virginia has continued to make improvements to its ski area. Most slopes and trails were widened over the summer of 2004, resulting in an expanded ski and riding acreage. A new handle tow has been installed in the teaching area, and capacity has also been increased at the Snowtubing Park. Additional rails have been added to the Playland Terrain Park, including some mini rails geared specifically towards introductory riders. The Chute has been extended into the Glades Trail. The Homestead has also enhanced its Ski School to include introductory and regular lessons on riding terrain features and rails.
The Homestead tentatively plans to open for the season on December 11, 2004.
