Located just two miles from the shores of Lake Tahoe, Diamond Peak is where local riders go when they want to skip the crowds and avoid the hype of Tahoe's bigger resorts—but still want to ride 1,840 feet of vertical and find secret stashes of fresh snow and fun terrain features hidden throughout the trees. Diamond Peak does its best to keep lift tickets affordable for all, with youth pricing for 13 to 23-year-olds, and discounts for pass holders from other ski resorts. Also, the view is "pretty good."

Riders can expect even more live music outdoors on the Sun Deck (when weather permits) or inside the Loft Bar this season as the resort expands its Spring Music Series into the heart of winter. Complementing the music is an expanded selection of craft beers available for happy hour pricing in the early afternoon. Diamond Peak's terrain park builders have completely rebuilt the resort's stock of rails, boxes, and other man-made features using recycled materials and state-of-the-art design tools to provide riders with a whole new slate of options for this winter.


Diamond Peak's terrain park builders, Matt Melilli and Tim Hay, are innovators who have worked on terrain park builds like the U.S. Open, Dew Tour and Superpark events. At Diamond Peak, they focus on flowy park lines that allow all riders to progress and have the most fun possible.
