“Great little resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2006

My wife and I have always skied in CO and at Whistler, but were invited to Lake Tahoe for the first time. Because of the wind, our friend took us to Diamond Peak, where some of the runs are protected. Good choice! The groomed blacks were very nice, the 24" of powder one day certainly was a challenge, but fun, and the views are wonderful. The Lodge is small, but convenient. No lift lines, easy access, reasonable price and great snow. We'd certainly go back!

“Great ski school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2005

I am very happy I checked the review on Tripadvisor before deciding on Diamond Peak (vs Squaw Valley) for the 4 days we just spent skiing. We hadn't skied in 20 years and our 5 year old had never skied. We found the instructors at the adult ski school very good and our child LOVED the children ski schools. Instructors are well trained and seem to enjoy dealing with kids. We were told to come at 8.30am to sign up our child for the group lessons (starting at 10am) and were a bit apprehensive about crowds during President's week. We got there on the Tuesday (after President's day) and it was fine. Everything went smoothly, the resort is just the right size, beginner slopes are right there when you get in. We would go in early at about 8.30am, sign in our kid for the day, have breakfast right there at the base lodge, leave him in the ski school after breakfast, where he would have 2hrs ski in the am and 2hrs in the pm, and lunch with his friends and ski instructors, and we'd pick him up at 4pm. Our kid had a great time and so did we. We'll definitely go back next year.

“Great family skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2004

Just returned from "ski week" in Tahoe - and my family loved our first visit to Diamond Peak! All around a great place for a family to ski - not too big (so I could let my kids roam), friendly staff and lodge, and a good value.

After skiing two days at Diamond Peak, on our third day we headed over to check out Northstar - and after 2 hours of the crowds at Northstar, we split to Diamond Peak for the afternoon!

We will definitely return to Diamond Peak to ski - maybe in a few weeks if the snow holds up!
