Diamond Peak: Lake Tahoe’s Hidden Gem
Community-owned, fiercely independent, and community-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 4th most skiable vertical in the Tahoe Basin (according to the independent website mountainvertical.com). 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.”
Diamond Peak is located above Incline Village, Nevada, on the north shore of 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 – a community-owned resort known for having Tahoe’s best view, Tahoe’s best value, and a friendly atmosphere that skiers and riders looking to avoid the big corporate resorts love.
Riding Diamond Peak
Another way Diamond Peak sets itself apart is by offering affordable lift ticket prices. Diamond Peak lift tickets are available for advanced purchasing online or in-person at the ticket windows. Purchase a multi-day ticket if you want to save on skiing for a several-day-long visit, or purchase a Diamond Peak season pass for the best bang for your buck. Pass holders at Diamond Peak get amazing value on mid-week and full-time lift passes.
As one of the best family-friendly resorts in the Lake Tahoe Basin, Diamond Peak Ski Resort boasts a Child Ski Center with a distinct learning area perfect for young children aged 3 to 6 years old. The separate skiing areas create a crowd-free place where kids can learn or practice with a lesson booked in advance.
