My wife made good progress during her fourth time on skis thanks to the instructors at Diamond. They offered good explanations, which was a real plus as English is not her native tongue. She was pleased with her progress and came home tired but happy.

We took the kids to Incline for their first ski experience. We wanted to make sure the kids got lesson on their first visit and Diamond peak had many options (groups, private, half and full day) so it was easy to accommodate our schedules. We decided to try the morning session which turned out to be great. We dropped them... More

Had a lesson with Jim. He was a nice guy and really knows what he is talking about. He used to compete professionally and ran a ski academy. The downside was the $180 price tag and the fact we never really went over anything to do with the boots or skiis. My first tumble, I didn't know I had to... More

Our three kids learned how to ski in about 30 minutes. Wide variety of slopes and difficulty, but for a local place it was perfect and resonably priced for a family of non-skiiers!

Check my kids in with two different instructors for a half day ski school and watched most of the class for both of them while taking photos. Both instructors were extremely attentive and very helpful and patient with the kids. Generally I was very impressed with the staff at this resort they truly were all extremely nice and very helpful.

Good instructors and they do care about children and very creative about their teaching (throwing snowballs on the instructors if kids got it right)... My daughter loves it

Kids did two half days of ski school. Both days they had great instructors. They are intermediate boarders and had never gone beyond blue runs. By the second day they were not afraid of black diamond runs...... even though I am! We tipped the instructors $10-$20 and they gave us a $10 off coupon for the next day's lesson. I... More

Diamond Peak Ski School has been an important staple in the Tahoe and Reno/Carson ski communities for decades. The teachers are genuinely interested in the progress of their pupils and the mountain has managed to maintain that family friendly, homey, local mountain feel. Much like the surfers seeking their endless summers, the ski instructors tend to be New Zealanders who... More
