Less is More at Diamond Peak
Diamond Peak offers more with fantastic views and family–friendly vibe
A true Tahoe experience awaits you at Diamond Peak Ski Resort, located in Incline Village, North Tahoe. Diamond Peak offers 655 skiable acres, 1,840 feet of vertical, uncrowded slopes and vast views of Lake Tahoe, just 35 miles from Reno–Tahoe International Airport. Diamond Peak features six chairlifts and 30 runs that rival other resorts, but with more affordable prices, breath-taking lake views and an atmosphere the whole family will enjoy.
Diamond Peak offers more ways for adults and kids to have a great day on the slopes, without breaking the bank. Lift tickets range from $59 ($69 peak) for adults, to free for those 6 and under and 80 and older. These prices make it affordable to take the whole family skiing for several days and seem almost unreal when compared to other resorts. Families save big with the Family 4-Pack lift ticket deal, getting a family of four with kids 12 & under on the mountain for only $168. If the kids are six & under, the price drops to $118 for all four lift tickets.
Diamond Peak also has a deal for those planning to visit multiple days this season without having to buy a full season pass. The Mini Pass gets you on the slopes for two to seven days for as little as $39 per day. A Mini Pass is a great gift for friends and family, plus it’s transferable, so your friends can use it when you aren’t! This pass is valid any day of the season.
Diamond Peak is a great place to learn or improve your skills, with lessons for first timers to advanced skiers and riders. The Adult Beginner Package, for those 15 and older, includes a beginner lift ticket, rental equipment and a one hour and 45 minute lesson for only $84. Kids seven to 14 years old can ski or snowboard in the Sierra Scout Group Lessons, which are broken into groups ranging from first-timers, to black diamond little rippers and all levels in between. Sierra Scout Packages include an all mountain lift ticket, lesson and rentals. The All Day Adventure includes a supervised lunch and afternoon lesson, freeing parent’s up enjoy a full day of skiing on their own. Diamond Peak also has an internationally recognized Child Ski School and private lessons.

If you are looking for the best bang for your buck, take advantage of the Diamond Peak Season Pass. Not only will you receive unlimited skiing and awesome views at Diamond Peak, but this year you get four free bonus days at both Homewood Mountain Resort and Red Lodge Mountain, Montana. Homewood is just forty minutes away and also has great views, a family-friendly atmosphere and local vibe.
After a fun day on the slopes, Diamond Peak’s signature Last Tracks event awaits adults 21 and over. Last Tracks is a wine and beer tasting event held Saturdays and select Fridays (February through April) at the mid-mountain Snowflake Lodge. Ski or ride the last two hours of the day then take the last chair up to Snowflake Lodge for wine or beer tasting, appetizers and outstanding views. During the event, the mountain crew grooms out a run to give you the unbeatable experience of getting to ski down a freshly groomed run at sunset and truly get “last tracks.”
While the mountain projects a relaxed, family-friendly vibe, those seeking a little more adrenaline can explore some excellent in-bounds powder skiing. Even days after a big storm, you can find untracked powder through the trees of Solitude Canyon and off Crystal Ridge. This unforgettable ski resort offers less crowded slopes that cater to groups and families of all ages.
