Interchangeable Parent Tickets

Diamond Peak offers an interchangeable parent lift ticket for the same price as our standard adult lift ticket rates. We make it easy to switch off who is out on the slopes and who is relaxing in the Base Lodge with the future skiers/snowboarders. Just ask at the ticket windows for an interchangeable parent ticket and you'll be set to go.

Ski & Snowboard Lessons for ages 3+

The Child Ski Center (ages 3-7) provides a safe and fun learning environment for kids ages 3-7 of all abilities. With a separate learning area, surface lift and low instructor to child ratio of 1:5, your children are sure to receive the attention they deserve in an uncrowded and fun environment. Group and private lessons are available for children 4-7 years old. 3-year-olds are accepted in private lessons only. Click here for more information on Child Ski Center programs.

The Ski & Snowboard School (ages 7+) features professional instructors, low student-to-instructor ratios, gentle slopes, and a friendly environment which provides an ideal place to learn how to ski or snowboard. We offer a variety of programs, packages and clinics for beginners, intermediate and advanced skiers and riders. Click here for more information.

Other reasons families love Diamond Peak

  • Terrain for all abilities: Diamond Peak features the perfect progression from the bunny slopes to the black diamonds, with a private surface lift and learning area for kids enrolled in our Child Ski Center programs, the beginner-friendly School House chairlift serving the beginner-only School Yard run, and options to gradually increase your slope and speed as you feel comfortable.
  • The family meetup funnel: You never have to worry that your kids will get lost by skiing/snowboarding off in a different direction at Diamond Peak. All of our runs eventually lead back to the Base Area, meaning it's easy to all meet up at the bottom, even if everybody in the group wants to ski/ride a different ability run.
  • Beginner terrain parks: Diamond Peak's terrain parks are designed to help your little ripper progress from tiny features that are at ground level to intermediate/advanced park features that will have them experiencing the thrill of catching air with Lake Tahoe in the background.
