Environmental Efforts

{alt_text}

Diamond Peak Ski Resort is one of the many that recognizes global warming and the effects that pollutants have on our environment. These are a few things that Diamond Peak has done or continues to do to join the cause in helping our winters stay cool:

  • Installed two ChargePoint electric vehicle charging stations at Diamond Peak (upper lot) and two down the road at the Incline Championship Golf Course (955 Fairway Blvd)
  • Installed thermostats in our facilities on automated systems, thus reducing our energy use by at least 20%
  • Upgraded snowmaking system to use newer, more energy efficient technology including: fan guns and low energy HKD snowguns
  • Installed Evolution (EVO) boilers for more efficient heating in the Skier Services Building
  • Encourages carpooling by offering two shuttles that pick up in Incline Village and the Hyatt
  • Installed dual-flush toilets, thermal windows and new lighting to conserve water and energy
  • Installed hydration stations with sensors to encourage the use of reusable beverage containers
  • Educates employees and the community through IVGID’s WasteNot programs, Go Green Day, orientation and signage in the Base Lodge
  • Encourages recycling by making recycling bins readily available
  • Controls soil erosion through slope maintenance, BMPs, and water bars to help protect Lake Tahoe water clarity
  • Uses recyclable and biodegradable containers and utensils in food and beverage outlets
  • Completed STOKE evaluation and working toward STOKE Certification
  • Runs two Diamond Peak shuttles throughout Incline Village, to pick up visitors and employees to encourage carpooling
  • Uses environmentally-safe and biodegradable containers and utensils in food and beverage outlets

Help us Keep Tahoe Beautiful

We are committed to helping keep Tahoe beautiful and encourage guests to do their part. Help us conserve, “Drink Tahoe Tap!” instead of bottled water, use re-useable beverage containers, carpool or take the free shuttle, and recycle!

STOKE Certified stoke_logo

Diamond Peak was benchmarked in April 2015 by STOKE Certified, a sustainable tourism certification program for ski areas, to assess all of Diamond Peak’s management practices, community development initiatives, interpretation programs, waste management, cultural heritage preservation, biodiversity conservation, and much more. STOKE provided a Roadmap Report to guide the ski area towards achieving best practices as well as STOKE certification by fall 2017. View Diamond Peak's profile and learn more about STOKE Certified
