The El Niño effect has brought 44 more inches of snow this season compared to the same time last year.
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (Dec. 18, 2015) – The early hype about a Godzilla El Niño bringing an abundance of snow to the Lake Tahoe region this winter has held true, with Diamond Peak Ski Resort planning to be fully operational in time for the December school holiday break, weather and conditions permitting.
In addition to 72 inches of natural snow as of Dec. 18, sustained cold temperatures during the months of November and December have allowed Diamond Peak’s snowmaking system to operate for over 380 hours – a total that was not reached until Dec. 29 last season – and to generate 150% of the total amount of man-made snow compared to last season.
Families looking for a friendly and approachable Tahoe ski resort this holiday season should consider Diamond Peak, which offers a great mix of value and convenience, with a commitment to customer service above all else.
A family with young children can ski or snowboard Diamond Peak for as little as $138 during the winter break (with 1-day adult tickets at $69 and kids 6 and under free). Youth and Senior 1-day lift tickets (ages 13-23 or 65-69 respectively) are just $59 during the holidays, while Children and Super Seniors (ages 7-12 and 70+) ski or ride for just $33.
Skiers and riders looking for deeper discounts to go with the deep snowpack can save even more with a 2- to 7-day Flex Pass, which offers daily rates as low as $42 for adults in a fully-transferrable mini-pass valid all season long (even during the holidays). And for those looking for the ultimate pass to a powder-filled season, unrestricted adult Diamond Peak season passes are still available for just $449.
Pass holders at other ski resorts who are blacked out during the holidays or are looking to try something new are encouraged to take advantage of Diamond Peak’s “Bring Your Other Pass” deal - $45 lift tickets during the holidays if you show your other season pass ($35 regularly).
Getting to Diamond Peak couldn’t be easier, with slope-side parking available at the resort, and a free ski shuttle picking up skiers from various locations around Incline Village and connecting with the Tahoe Area Regional Transit (TART) busses as well.
Finally, Diamond Peak celebrates the holidays with a visit from Santa and Diamond Peak mascot Penguin Pete on December 24 and 25, as well as theme days in the Child Ski Center featuring staff in fun costumes during the holiday break.
