With unique views of the desert, Washoe Valley, mountains around and Lake Tahoe, Diamond Peak offers a spectacular way to experience the rich environment of the region. There aren’t many places in the world with such panorama views as Lake Tahoe, and when combined with over 300 inches of snow per season it isn’t hard to understand why people visit Diamond Peak. Come here to get away from the crowds and experience a resort that is small in acreage but large in vertical drop (1,850 ft) and intimate in setting.

Diamond Peak was started after increased attention was brought to the California ski industry after the 1960 Winter Olympic Games. It was part of an integral master plan idea created by Art Wood to develop a vacation resort community. Originally called “Ski Incline,” the first version of the resort was constructed in 4 months for $2 million and included the West Coast’s first snowmaking system, 3 chair lifts and a T-Bar. Over the years, the resort grew into what is now Diamond Peak. A major expansion occurred in 1987 with the addition of the upper portion of the resort, offering the stunning views 360 views now enjoyed by all. Diamond Peak continues to upgrade its lift operations, lodges and snowmaking systems to this day.

Summer Activities
Facilities are available for reception activities such as parties and weddings. Outdoor activities include hiking and rock climbing.
