Diamond Peak, Family Friendly Ski Vacations

Family skiing at Diamond Peak

Diamond Peak Ski Resort is North Lake Tahoe’s secret hidwaway. Located in Nevada’s Incline Village, the family friendly and affordable resort is one of the few that is just minutes from the Lake Tahoe shore, yet has breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. With a mountain summit elevation of 8,540-feet and a 1,840-foot vertical drop this all around, all level resort caters to families who ski and snowboard.

Diamond Peak is located just north of Lake Tahoe shore, near the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe, in Nevada. Almost on the border of California and Nevada, the Tahoe region is renowned for its famous restaurants, nightlife, casinos and the highest concentration of ski resorts in North America. On the north shore alone, starting on the westside of the lake, Homewood, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Northstar and Mt. Rose along with Diamond Peak which is known for amazing views, affordable prices, and a resort without a lot of attitude, just altitude.

Diamond Peak offers skiers great deals on lift tickets and coupled with the City Concierge Lake Tahoe lodging puts together packages that make "cents" without taking a dent out of the wallet. There are even senior over 80 free lift tickets.

Our photos show that Diamond Peak has that special something no other major resort can claim, the some of incredible views of Lake Tahoe. Check out Incline Village Reservations to see even more gorgeous shots of the resort and the lake. The best views of the lake are best seen from Crystal Ridge and Snowflake Lodge, but guests can still enjoy lake views from the beginner slopes, Base Lodge deck and even the parking lot.

Diamond Peak sets itself apart from other resorts because of its desire to get everyone to learn to ski and ride. From first time beginners to experienced skiers and riders, Diamond Peak has the terrain and an atmosphere that is non threatening, family friendly, with no judgements. Yes, there are all kinds of runs for all kinds of skiers, but the memories for families and groups come from the ability for everyone to participate.

This season Diamond Peak is improving its "Glade Skiing and Riding". Glade skiing is alpine skiing through trees off-trail or on a defined woods trail. Glades are variously sought for their solitude, beauty, or caches of ungroomed powder. Woods also tend to hold better snow longer thanks to the shade and shelter trees provide. Diamond Peak continues to improve the health and safety of the forest and ski trails with the defensible space program therefore is a very "green" resort. Forest thinning during the summer helps reduce fire danger by increasing defensible space, but has the added benefit of making tree skiing even better. Look for new off piste (marked trails) skiable terrain in the trees between Diamondback and Spillway, located off of Crystal Ridge. Diamond Peak offers 655 acres of beginner to advanced terrain that include open glades.

Skiing has traditionally been a costlier sport with expensive lift tickets, gear, clothes, out of town lodging. Diamond Peak offers a lift ticket for adults in the $65 range and discounts for Seniors. If you're a season pass holder from another resort, your pass cuts the lift ticket down to just $35 during non holiday times, and $45 during peak holidays. They also offer a free day on your birthday. If your birthday is after March 26, then just show your id and you can ski on March 25 for free.

This season put a 3 day or longer vacation on the calendar at Diamond Peak. All new and ready for you. Check out this video of the ski resort, launching the 2015-2016 season. See you there!
