Diamond Peak: Lake Tahoe’s Hidden Gem 

Community-owned, fiercely independent, and value-driven—those are the key differentiating factors that make Diamond Peak distinct in the Lake Tahoe ski resort scene. “Small but mighty” would be another apt description, because with 1,840 vertical feet of skiable terrain packed into 655 acres just a mile from Lake Tahoe, Diamond Peak offers the fourth most skiable vertical in the Tahoe Basin. Add in panoramic views of Lake Tahoe from nearly every run on the mountain, incredible glades for tree skiing/riding, and Tahoe’s best-maintained and most progressive terrain park (The Village), and it’s no wonder locals know that skiing at Diamond Peak is Lake Tahoe’s “hidden gem.”

Ski and snowboard all winter long at this community-owned resort surrounded by breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe on every run.

Diamond Peak is located above Incline Village, Nevada, in North Lake Tahoe—just up the hill from the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, renowned restaurants and brewpubs, and a huge range of outdoor activities. The Tahoe area offers the highest concentration of ski resorts in North America, from world-famous names to locally-loved treasures like Diamond Peak. This community-focused resort is known for having Lake Tahoe’s best view, best value, and a friendly atmosphere that skiers and riders looking to avoid the big corporate resorts appreciate.

Riding Diamond Peak

As one of the best family-friendly resorts in the Lake Tahoe Basin, Diamond Peak Ski Resort is the perfect place for first-times and novices of all ages to learn how to ski and snowboard. Diamond Peak customizes its lessons by age group—there’s the Child Ski Center for ages 3-6, the Youth Ski & Ride Center for ages 7-12, and the Adult Ski & Ride Center for ages 13 and up. These separate areas provide professional instructors with a crowd-free place to learn, practice, and progress your skills. All ability levels are welcome at the Village Terrain Park, where jumps, rails, boxes, and jibs let you get creative and have a blast.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy food court classics and vegetarian selections at the Base Lodge. Wild Bill’s BBQ dishes authentic fare with slow-smoked meats, housemade sauces, and dining with a view. You’ll find on-mountain eats and cocktails at the Snowflake Lodge, which is only accessible to intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders via the Lakeview Chair.

Another way Diamond Peak sets itself apart is by offering affordable lift ticket prices. Purchase Diamond Peak lift tickets online or in person once you arrive. Get a multi-day ticket if you want to save on skiing over a weekend, or opt for a Diamond Peak season pass for the best bang for your buck. Season pass perks include bonus lift tickets, on-mountain discounts, appreciation events, and more.
