“Nice little ski resort”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It isn't large but it isn't crowded and it also isn't expensive. It is a great place to go to teach a beginning skier or snow boarder. It is easy to find your whole family. Everyone can ski at their own ability and yet keep running in to each other regularly throughout the day. The view of the lake from the Lakeview Lodge is amazing.

Thanks for the great comments! There’s something for every level at Diamond Peak with beginner runs, tree skiing, advanced trails and terrain parks. And you are right, you can’t beat the views! Stick around for a drink or hot chocolate next time and you could see an amazing sunset on your way out.

Thanks for the review, sounds like you had an awesome trip! The Hyatt Shuttle makes it really convenient to get to Diamond Peak, and it’s so close. And there’s nothing like a comfortable bed to go back to after a good day of skiing.

“One of the last of the smaller ski resorts in Tahoe”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We love skiing here! Our kids and grand kids learned how to ski here. The ski school is great. The views at the top of the runs is as good, if not better than, Squaw or Northstar. The advanced skiers do not enjoy as much as the beginners and intermediates but they are able to get in many runs.

Three generations of Diamond Peak skiers -wow! I am glad you keep coming back and bringing your family. This year we improved the tree skiing off Crystal Ridge between Lightning and Diamondback. This may be something your intermediate and advanced skiers should check out on your next visit!

“A cute little place”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

If you are expecting a world class mountain, this isn't it. However, it is a great place to learn to ski and it does have some challenging terrain. The big is that it is readily accessible for just a couple hours of skiing. Just a few minutes from parking to skiing.

“shhhhhhhhhhhhh I'm not supposed to tell....”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

I would have never discovered Diamond Peak unless I had moved to Incline Village. This great little ski run (little compared to Heavenly) is an off the radar jewel that gives skiers some one of the best views of the Lake when you come off the chair lift that takes you to the very top. I can hope over for a half day and get back to the office for an afternoon of work. It's a great hill and I hope this review doesn't ruin it for us locals. But if you're in the area it is worth checking out.
