Thanks for checking us out! We just received a bunch of snow from the last snowstorm and the mountain is 100% open. We hope you'll come back soon!

“Our favorite place to ski”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Diamond Peak does not have the scale and all of the amenities of some of the larger resorts in the area - but that's what we love about it. As our son learned to ski, we really appreciated the fact that it was not as overwhelming yet still offered a good variety of trails as his skills advanced. The ski school is fantastic - we have taken advantage of both group and private lessons and have been really happy with both.
One change we noticed this year was more diligence about dealing with the "squatters" who monopolize the tables in the lodge, especially around lunch time. In past years, we have been unable to find a place to sit down and eat due to families who have non-skiers camp out and hold entire table for the whole day. This year Diamond Peak had staff circling the area and making sure that people were sharing their tables and making sure that people weren't holding seats for people who were still out on the mountain. We really appreciated that!
As other reviewers have noted, the views from the top of the mountain are just breathtaking.
We love Diamond Peak and even though we know all of the trails by heart after coming here year after year, we can't imagine going anywhere else. It feels like home!

“Good local option”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Diamond Peak doesn't have many runs, but it has the most spectacular view anywhere in Tahoe from the top. Most of the runs are intermediate, so not the best place for beginners or advanced skiers. Because it's so small, lift tickets are the best bargain around.
