For skiing, it is much cheaper then most places in Colorado, and I believe it's more affordable than the competing ski destinations in the area. There are a lot of really nice views for sure. That's beautiful. The parking is not very good at all. There also aren't all that many runs. I'd say that if you are passionate about skiing this is not the place for you. If you are only skiing a couple days, and ski once a year, this is perfect. Also, if you are bringing a bunch of kids, it's great because there are only two lifts at the base. So, it's not that hard to meet up with people. The food is crap, and really the bar is pretty sub par. If you have been to premium ski destinations like Vail, or Aspen, and expect that quality here, then you need to adjust your expectations. I think that if you are a casual skier and have a party with a lot of kids, this place is great.

Amazing views, the rental staff was very helpful. Only real issue was no snow! I know they have a business to run, but shelling out over $400 for three people to have the ski experience with only limited runs is tough to swallow. With snow the value is there for this resort.

You'll have to come back to ski the other terrain. We got over 4 feet of snow just after your visit and are now 100% open!

We spent three days at Diamond Peak and are already planning a return trip. Our children (5 & 9) spent two full days in classes, which they loved and we got to spend two days skiing the beautiful slopes. The views over Lake Tahoe are stunning and the sloped are well maintained and cater for all groups; we are intermediates.
One of our lasting memories will be how friendly and welcoming the staff are at Diamond Peak. They couldn't do enough to help and really make this a super special resort.

Bought a season pass here. The Crystal Express is frequently broken. They also do not prioritize season pass holders over single day lift tickets. Will never ski here again and recommend others stay away. Poorly managed but about what you'd expect from a greedy city run establishment.

First time visiting for me was late March 2021. Spring skiing was well underway. I had not skied in several years, so it took a few easy runs for me to feel confident, but good times after that. Ski school was still available. Most of the mountain was open. Conditions were good. Of course, being late March, it was warmer each day and the snow softened considerably by closing time. Still had a good time and would go again. Will say that the mountain really isn't that big, relative to most western resorts, but I was very satisfied for a weekend trip. Recommend.

We are a few time a year skiers, blues with a few blacks mixed in. This place is a wonderful resort for the middle to good skier. While it’s not the biggest or most known, the Snowflake Bar at the top of the Lakeview lift is our favorite! Their prices are fair, their staff is super friendly, and their view is best on the lake!! We love Diamond Peak!

Lessons include rentals but allow enough time to get them. The lines are long and you might be late for your lesson. The programs are amazing for kids under 7 with nice open, easy terrain for them. For more advanced skiers there isn’t a ton of varying terrain but the laid back vibe of the resort is refreshing from the hustle and bustle of the larger mega resorts. Overall a good value for the family. Just set your expectations properly. This is not Northstar or Heavenly.

Great Skiing at local mountain. It was not crowded when I went. I believe it is community owned mountain. The mountain has a variety of ski runs for all type of skiers. I would highly recommend. There are some great picturesque view on the top. For a smaller resort, it offers everything you will need!

We had a great experience with two children ages 6 and 9 and one adult. All had never skied downhill before. Took lessons in the morning and skied the rest of the day for 3 days. Nice choice of slopes. Very well organized parking, check in, and equipment rental.
