Yes, it's small by other Tahoe resort standards, but it's a great place for a "warm-up" day. The views are killer! At the top of the Lakeview Chairlift is the Snowflake Lodge. Quick eats and drinks, but go out on the deck! The view of the lake is unsurpassed. There are a few great blue runs and the grooming is... More

Go to the top, spectacular view of Lake Tahoe and it's surrounding mountains. Smaller ski area, had zero wait times at the lifts and well groomed slopes, even if the 50 degree temps made it a bit heavy going.

Diamond Peak is the best place for beginners, especially for family with kids want to learn ski, snowboard. If you are looking for some challenges, better go some other places like heveanly. One day lift ticket for beginner is $39, just one fourth of heveanly (as a beginner, you don't have much chances take those blue or black trails, so... More

Diamond Peak is not going to interest a really good skier for more than one or two runs. But it is a pleasant day to cruise with friends or take the family skiing. It keeps trying to be a big resort but just doesn't have the terrain or location to do it.

We do have some fun advanced terrain and tree skiing but due to the warm temperatures we’ve had recently, most of those trails are not open. Crystal Ridge and the Great Flume are great intermediate trails that are open and perfect for cruising. -Jackie More

We haved skied here many times in the past plus just this past Friday. Although it was very windy, several lifts were still operating. Conditions were mushy, but manageable. It seems to be a family friendly resort as there were many children skiing and taking lessons as well. The only criticism is that the tables in the lodge are very... More

We usually can keep all our lifts running on windy days when other resorts shut down, due to our elevation and orientation of the lifts. The base lodge can get crowded on a stormy day but if it’s sunny there’s plenty of space on the deck or the Snowflake Lodge. That storm actually brought in 2 feet of snow, so... More

For kids or beginners, this place is great. And, the rates are more reasonable than the big name places. The view at the top is breath taking and one of the best in North Shore. For expert skier's...well you're there for the kids to learn and enjoy the view.

We’re definitely one of the more affordable choices, especially if you’re bringing your whole family! We do have some fun advanced terrain and tree skiing that just opened up with the 24” of snow we got over the weekend. Come give us another try and I think you’ll agree. - Jackie More

We just got back from Lake Tahoe, stayed at Hyatt at Incline Village (great!), and went skiing at Northstar resort upon advice of concierge. Went to Diamond Peak later in our stay, and what a pleasant surprise it was! We are beginner snowboarders/skiers, and Diamond Peak is set up SO much better for beginners, with $29 beginner lift tickets vs.... More

Well said! Diamond Peak is not only affordable and friendly, but really convenient for people staying at the Hyatt. You can purchase everything at the Hyatt Sports Shop and hop on the Diamond Peak shuttle. We have great beginner areas, but also intermediate and advanced terrain. Those ski team kids you saw could be Olympians some day! We hold ski... More

just finished a 2 week ski vacation today. Skied Dillon Co. For a week, and Lake Tahoe for a week. Diamond Peak was by far our best skiing of all. Skied Alpine Meadows, Mt. Rose and Diamond Peak, with the snow to work with Diamond Peak was our favorite. We will be back. Chuck&cindy

We skied a few places around snow-lacking Tahoe this week, including Kirkwood, and the runs that Diamond Peak had open made it well worth a visit. The 2 runs off of Crystal Express high-speed quad, Flume and Crystal Ridge, kept us busy for most of the day. We've skied all over out west, but we decided to give Diamond Peak... More
