Diamond Peak Ski Resort

About The Resort
It’s not as large as some of its neighbors; however on the weekends when North Lake Tahoe and the big resorts get swamped with visitors, Diamond Peak offers fewer crowds and more. The top of the resort, opened up to lift operations in 1987, offers one of Tahoe’s most stunning views. On one side is the open desert and Washoe Valley and on the other is Lake Tahoe. The intimate setting here is what has drawn the locals and regulars year after year since this resort opened after the Olympic Games of 1960. A great place to learn and enjoy a family atmosphere, Diamond Peak also offers very reasonable lift ticket rates along with a 1 hour guarantee. If you don’t like it here within your first hour (whether that be due to service or snow conditions, etc), then return your ticket for a voucher for a future date of your choice. That’s a great deal, one definitely worth checking out if you are visiting North Lake Tahoe this winter.

Resort History
Started after the 1960 Winter Olympic Games at Squaw Valley, Diamond Peak was originally called “Ski Incline.” Art Wood helped open this resort as a part of his larger master plan for Incline Village, a vision of his for an integrated destination resort. The plan was met with many naysayers, plenty of which were surprised when Ski Incline was able to open within 4 months with 3 chairlifts, a T-Bar and the first snowmaking system on the west coast. The new business was a success, and from then on continued to expand.

A significant upgrade came in 1987, when the accessible terrain was expanded to the top of Diamond Peak. The community wanted it, and they got it, with lift access to the 360 degree panorama view that defines a unique experience at this mountain. Ever since, Diamond Peak has continued to upgrade its lift technologies, lodges and ski school.
