Diamond Peak Ski Resort


[Lift Tickets, Equipment Rental/Repair Shop, Ski & Snowboard Lessons, Child Ski Center]

Family at Diamond Peak with Lake Tahoe view - Click to ZoomThey call Diamond Peak "Lake Tahoe's" Premier Family Ski Resort." Good idea. It's a great get-a-way. When it comes to getting to the mountain fast, getting as many runs in as possible, skiing great terrain and being treated like an old friend, Tahoe locals have the best advice -- go to Diamond Peak.

You won't waste time sitting in traffic, waiting in long lift lines, and pushing through crowds. You will treasure our friendly atmosphere because whether you are alone, or with a large group, the staff makes you feel like family.

Put this all together with 360 degrees of amazing Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada views and we are confident you will have the best ski experience you can find at Lake Tahoe.

Amazing place? You bet.

Your pulse rises, you take a deep breath and you're off. Brilliant sun. Incredible snow. Crisp, fresh air. Freedom at last. At Diamond Peak you can go up and down our mountain all day, and you will never get over the views. Come experience Diamond Peak and rediscover why you started skiing and snowboarding in the first place.

The resort's classic design offers terrain to encourage beginners and challenge the best. Families in particular feel safer here as all of the runs funnel into one base area. Kids can actually ski by themselves while Mom and Dad take some turns on their own, worry free.

It's an undiscovered mountain which means lift lines are shorter, prices are more affordable, and service is second to none.

Experience our high speed quad "Crystal Express". Get up to 8,450 vertical feet in about 5 minutes! We get you to the top faster and easier so you can spend more time skiing, less time on the lift. This year Diamond Peak's terrain park is bigger and better than ever. The park is filled with rails and boxes as well as all kinds of kickers and table tops. Skiers and boarders can go big on our massive kickers or learn to slide on our low flat boxes. There are terrain features for all abilities in the terrain park. The terrain park is located on Spillway. Take a quick ride on Crystal Express then head down the Flume, Thunder or Lightning and you'll hit the park. We also have some family friendly terrain features on Penguin. This area features low flat rails and boxes for skiers and riders of all abilities. Penguin can be easily accessed from the Lakeview Chairlift.
