Diamond Peak Reviews & Tips (92)

Friendly and helpful employees on the mountain. Dining on the mountain was a disappointment - mediocre food (we had soup and chili) at premium prices and the staff was completely disengaged.

Diamond Peak rocks. I love their beginner lift even though I'm more of a beginner/intermediate. TIP: The last Friday of March is called your non-birthday birthday. If your birthday is in their off season, you can ski for FREE, that's right FREE on this day only. For all others, you ski free ON your birthday. I wish Liftopia would've alerted me to that when I purchased my tickets, it would've been the right thing to do.

Susan Beginner Skier
Went on a Friday with 3 beginners. The beginners bought the beginner lift tickets ($29 at DP) and I used liftopia to save a little. Considering the lack of fresh snow, there was plenty of coverage and could ski constant with out a wait. The upper lifts are fast to get you to the top. Our beginners planned to stay on the easy runs which turned out to be only lodgepole since school house is just a little too flat. If renting, save some $ by renting in town at somewhere like Villiage Ski Loft. Cheaper and high quality service. Staff were all friendly at DP so I would go again without hesitation.

On 1/27, 1/28 Squaw valley had only red dog and one other chair open to very icy trail. DP made enough snow to well cover both trail to top with a little loose snow on top of hard pack.. It is much more value and enjoyment. The view on top of ridge is similar to Homewood and Heavenly. The lift ticket including a beer in village is very unusual offer.

james Advanced Skier
I was disappointed with Diamond Peak. The other family we were with were beginners and there was only one partially green (beginners) run. It was partial because there were two blue portions in between the green runs. The majority of the green run was a narrow trail that had combination slushy and icy snow. It was rather boring for them to ski the same run all day. WARNING: if you bought the Costco gift cards for Diamond Peak, the Snowflake Lodge on top of the Lakeview Quad chair lift WILL NOT ACCEPT these gift cards. Apparently, it's in small print on the gift card. This lodge is not part of Diamond Peak but has decent food and a view. We had to scramble to spend the remaining balance of the gift card at the cafeteria right before they closed as we decided we will not return to this place.

I went 2/8/14 and it was snowing all day. Wet snow, but still, it's snow. Definitely need to go back to see the view of the lake! The clouds and fog were keeping the view hidden. The staff is great, and there's also a cute lift operator at the top of Lakeview named Kwana. Should have got her number...but oh yeah, the mountain! It was windy up top, but definitely go here. Great runs, snow, and views (so I've heard). :) And a great price!

The place was sublime. I loved it. The 2m run from top to bottom with stunning views of the lake was a winner ! Lots of blue runs, only a few blacks open, but that view never got old. Everything about the mountain was easy. No lines, parking close to the slopes. Just loved it. There was enough snow. I understand there hasn't been much recently, but there was more than enough 3 days of lovely skiing.

I probably don't go back until they have enough snow. most of the good runs were closed. not enough signs to guide you. I end up going to a run that wasn't groomed ski on rocks. to many snow making machines couldn't even see where I was going. not enough natural snow. they shouldn't had the place open.

I probably wouldn't go to Diamond Peak again under spring conditions. The only have one lift that takes you to the upper lift and it broke down. Since there are no bathroom, or food and water off of the upper lift, this meant we had to stay there until we had to were driven by biology and hunger to the bottom of the hill.

A very good value is delivered by Diamond Peak, very pleasant people, good food and very easy access, i.e. you can easily walk from the no-charge parking lot, lockers are .75 and the runs are in good shape. I went to three ski resorts on this trip, Diamond Peak was the smallest in scale but the variety kept us engage for the day. This was also the best value in the North Shore of Tahoe.

Customer service is KING @ DP. Airlines sent my snbd bag to Atlanta , funny thing, our other 3 bags made it to Reno, but I digress. So no gear but I do have a lift ticket, DP staff let me swap it for the next day ( minus the $12 lunch credit) It was a Win for both parties. In the past DP also found, on the slopes, my cel phone. Returned to me at their cost, awesome.

Kev from Tempe AZ Advanced Snowboarder
Smaller resort but plenty for the beginner to intermediate skier. Advanced skier has several runs available, but may get bored by the end of the day, which is when its time to challenge yourself with Solitude. Views of Lake Tahoe are the best, especially at the end of the day as the sun is setting. Bought tickets through Liftopia and thought $40 was a good value. No crowd at all, which meant no wait in the lines.

Dave Advanced Skier
You can get there as early as possible. For the king's weekend, Diamond Peak allows us to get on lift even before 8:15AM, which was the time we reached the parking lot. And they kept lifts (lake view and lodge quad) open until 4:30PM.

Ericow Beginner Snowboarder
Liftopia is great and you skip the ticket lines by going to guest services around the side. Diamond Peaks view from the top of the Crystal Ridge is incredible. They have a great variety of decent advanced runs and intermediate runs that from the top to bottom can get your legs burning. The Snowflake Lodge is a great place and when the sun is shining you can't beat the views with good food and cold drinks!

been skiing all my life and used to live at Incline so I know the area well but haven't been for 20 years...very windy the other day and I knew that Rose would be horrible and "Ski Incline" as us oldtimers know it, is sheltered and would be fine..Homewood is another one to go to on a windy day...people were so nice, the backside was a blast, the Crystal Express is awsome..and the prices - I got a beer at the Snoflake for a buck!!! No ski area in America sells a beer for a buck...the vertical there is 1800 feet, as much as Alpine and four hundred more than Rose. Wish they were a thousand feet higher but you can't have it all...great place - I'll be back.

Great time. Great value for the cost of the ticket. Good family mountain as there are multiple levels feeding common lifts. My son enjoyed the terrain parks. He is intermediate snow boarder. We would come back.

First of all, buy your lift tickets from Liftopia for a great price but be sure to do it in advance of your arrival date. If you decide to leave your equipment at home due to airline baggage costs, show your airplane boarding pass to get 50% off of first day equipment rental rates. My best friend and I had a great time at Diamond Peak. We had never even heard of it until a week before our arrival but we were pleasantly surprised. We're both intermediate level skiers and really enjoyed the blue runs. The staff was friendly, the shuttle, ticketing and rental services were amazing, the powder was plentiful and the views of Lake Tahoe from the top of the mountain were spectacular. We've already planned on meeting there again next March for our annual ski vacation. Four thumbs up!!!

As a second time beginner I didn't care for Diamond Peak very much. The School Yard run was way too short and flat and the Lodge Pole run was a little too advanced for my skill set. More variety for a beginner would have been nice, but unfortunately the beginner terrain is severely limited. While it's true the views were breathtaking the only way to see them was a ride to the top where a beginner like me had no place going. Fortunately for me the staff at Diamond Peak was outstanding. Jenna ( I believe that was her name) basically gave me a personal escort/ski lesson the entire way down Crystal Ridge.

Can't beat the Liftopia price of lift ticket and lunch!! Great day--lots of sun and the groomed runs were in very good shape considering the lack of real snow. I think the food at the Snowflake Lodge at the top of the Lodgepole lift is the BEST of all of the ski resorts---fabulous soups and chili and sliders!! Make sure to take in the Happy Hour before your last run of the day-- for $1 beers and the fabulous view!!

This was our second ski trip to Diamond Peak and we really had a great time. Both times the weather had been cloudy with snow showers but all was good. Even with the lack of snow, coverage was very good (no damage to our skies). We look forward to skiing at Diamond Peak in the near future. Hopefully we'll have sunny skies next time. lol...

Diamond is a nice hill. Small. Friendly staff. Quality skies and boot rental. I feel bad for them for the lack of snow. When you rent from Liftopia ski and rental you can only rent the skies boots and pools for the mountain. Diamond has two rental shops. One at the mountain and one at the Hyatt. Diamond has a dumb policy ( to me ) is that they make you rent only at their mountain rental . So if you are staying at the Hyatt and rent gear to go to Northstar one day and want to keep the same boots, ski's and polls for the next day at Diamond with the Diamond package; you have to return the skis to Hyatt and re-rent the gear again. A small inconvenience

Suraj Intermediate Snowboarder
I heard great things about the resort, but when we showed up, the whole resort was shutdown due to power outage!!! That means no lifts running and we were told that the power outage can last anywhere from 4 hours upto 8 days! We were at heavenly before, and drove down and booked hotel in incline village especially for diamond peak - so all that was useless waste of money. The staff seemed friendly, but it is a tiny resort and we were extremely frustuated that they don't even have a backup generator. You will not experience this at heavely, sqauw or any other big resorts. So bottom line, keep in mind that there is a risk that the whole resort could be shutdown anytime when there is lot of snow.

Linto Intermediate Snowboarder
Great place to learn. Staff is friendly for the most part, although I did encounter a very rude person working at the lifts at the bunny slope/School House run. I still have trouble with the lifts and move rather slow, and this guy was being impatient and told my boyfriend and I that we need to move faster. Someone really need to remind that guy where he was stationed at - the lowest green run. Other than that rude incident, everything else has been pleasant. Great mountain and a beautiful view of the lake up at the top of Snowflake Lodge, although I hear at the summit it's even more spectacular. Oh, and the food at the lodge isn't too expensive either which was a surprise. I've been here 3 times already and would come back again and again.

Areal windy day, they didn't open the highest lift 'til the last run of the day. The rest of the resort is protected from the wind. This is a nice family resort where you can feel safe letting your kids go off on their own(well if you have at least 2 kids). Great views of Lake Tahoe

Great! Can't complain anything about Diamond Peak since they got the view and soft natural powders! Just sittin' on top of the mountain n looking down the Lake gives you great sence of journey. It is worth every penny. However, if u r into snowboarding that you wanna stay as long as u can... Then you should be looking for Boreal since the lift at Diamond Peak close around 4pm. Overall, Diamond Peak is one of the best ever.

Great place for families with young kids. Also, parking is limited but they do run a shuttle to get you to the lodge. You can actually ski down to your car when your done instead of waiting for the shuttle which does get crowded on the weekends.

We ski Diamond Peak every year with 3 other couples, school days friends. Not an 'in and groovey' resort, but a family place. Snowflake Lodge (mid mountain) is the place to hang out for break time and enjoy the views over the lake. After a bit to eat and drink, you have a choice of Least Difficult to Black Diamonds to glide back to the base lodge. We love it!

Our son is 5 1/2 and had only had one other lesson the day before at another resort. The views are beautiful and we got a killer deal through liftopia.com. This resort his a hidden gem in North Lake and you will find it to be fun for the whole family.

My husband and I went on Friday and we enjoyed it. The view at the top was amazing and it wasn't crowded. Also the snow condition was fine considering it hadn't snowed in a while.

Had a great day on Saturday. Maintenance of runs very good considering hadn't snowed in weeks. Lakeview run best quality snow we found. Snowflake lodge may have the best hamburgers in Tahoe basin. Kobe beef and prepared perfectly.

We skied mid-week and it was practically empty so we got tons of skiing in. The all day lessons for the kids are an amazing value and out two kids 4 and 6 had a fantastic time!

For a small resort there is a good variety of terrain. The schoolhouse run is great for the youngest kids or the most tepid beginner while Crystal Express provides access to long advanced/intermediate runs. When the right conditions exist, Solitude Canyon provides excellent tree skiing. Lake views are amazing from the Snowflake Lodge at the top of the Lakeview chair. Nice people and updated facilities.

the carpet system for loading on 'lodgepole' and 'lakeview' chairs is very dangerous and 'out of date' a detachable triple chair would be much safer in these two locations and a more efficient system for loading guests on these chairs... a serious injury will happen one day on these carpets...

not running the 'ridge chair' on a long weekend was a very poor decision by management... the 'lakeview run' is the next progresion for a intermediate skier after 'lodgepole run' 'freeway' is a family run and very crowded i my take my family to another resort next year because of this problem...

The views of the lake are just amazing from Diamond Peak. The resort is very accomodating and the nice thing is that all of the lifts converge at one place. Also an easy place to park. We really enjoyed it.

I went on a Thursday and there were zero lines. It's a great mountain with stunning views of Lake Tahoe from the top. The snow was quite good even though it hadn't laid any fresh for a while. The runs were nicely maintained and challenging enough to keep me entertained. As long as you can come when it's not too crowded, this place is awesome.

My family (husband and 5 kids) really enjoyed Diamond Peak. We skiied 5 midweek days and there were no lines at all. My kids are all at different levels, 2 tried snowboarding for the first time after years of skiing. Everyone mastered their choice during the time we were there.

My husband and skied at Diamond Peak on Sunday and had the perfect day all around! Friendly workers and riders, great snow conditions, and lots of variety for such a small resort. Our son tried to go to Sierra-at-Tahoe that same day and turned back around because of the crowds. We didn't wait in one lift line all day and really enjoyed the mountain.

Great family ski resort. The staff was great and truly seemed to enjoy working with the kids. Diamond Peak has been a long time family favorite and it continues to get better. Parking is easy and mid-week crowds are minimal. We never waited in line for a lift and prices are fair. Diamond Peak still sits on top of our list of favorite spots.

My family and I loved this resort. It was a full filled 2 days of snowboarding. We were there December 22-23rd. My biggest complaint is their organization of their children's program. Drop off was crazy but pick up was horrific!

Bang for buck this area has the best access to advanced intermediate skiing in the Tahoe area. 5 great varied fall line runs off of a high speed quad with fabulous views of the lake. I dare you wont have enough thighs to ski this place out in one day.

I like it here, not overly crowded as the other resorts. My husband is a beginner and he was able to learn hot board better at this resort.

It's a good place for beginner skier like me. Green area can be crowded. If there would be a place for little kids playing snow will be more family friendly.

Ive been snowboading for a while now and had to introduce my friends. GREAT place for beginners and the price cant be beat but not as large as some of the other resorts, like i said its geared for beginners and families

I've been going here for years and just brought my boyfriend who is a beginner skiier. It's a good place for families which means it can get pretty crowded, especially on the main green run. If you have a beginner skier get them on Freeway, it's a blue but pretty nice and gets you away from the crowds.

They have done quite a few improvements over this past year, however, their computer system was not one of them. Their computers were down for over 2 hours on the 30th, causing a HUGE delay for everyone. Diamond Peak is more of a "beginners'" resort. Most of their runs do not compare to the runs at the larger resorts in the area, but a great "warm-up" for those on their first run of the season

Avoid this "resort" at all cost on weekends or holidays. Frankly, I had the worst skiing experience ever at Diamond Peak. My family and I regularly ski and board in the North Tahoe area and we will never visit this resort again. It was SUPER overcrowded and the conditions were dangerous due to the excessive number of skiers. We skied one run and left - eating the cost of 3 lift tickets for one miserable run. Another skier crashed into my friend and struck her in the face with a pole. Be forewarned that the runs are narrow and the blue runs quite steep despite their rating.

On a busy day expect to have to take the shuttle to and from the overflow parking lot. This can take 30 min or more each trip depending on how long the lines are. It would be nice if they increase the frequency of buses on busy days.

It was my second time to Diamond Peak ski resort. I like the place very much. The staffs are friendly. The beginner's ski trail is quite long and easy to ski. The lift ticket for beginner trail is less than half than the regular lift tickets. It's quite a saving.

I rode Diamond Peak for the first time last season and was impressed. For a little resort hidden away in the middle of Incline Village, they have a lot to offer. The Tree runs in Solitude Canyon and under Crystal Express are really fun and empty - even on a powder day. Also, the custom stuffed baked potatoes in the lodge are a must try!
