Transportation & Directions

How do I get to Diamond Peak?

Detailed driving directions and a map can be found on the Getting Here page. We offer a free shuttle that services the Incline Village area, picking up once on weekday mornings, and twice before noon during peak periods and on weekends. The Hyatt Regency Free Shuttle picks up daily at the Hyatt starting at 8:30 a.m. and runs every half hour until 1:00 p.m.. The return shuttles begin at 2:00 p.m. and continues every half hour until 4:30 p.m. The North Lake Tahoe Express Shuttle also serves Incline Village from the Reno Tahoe International Airport.

Do you offer transportation from the Reno Airport?

Transportation to Incline Village from the Reno Airport is available through the North Lake Tahoe Express.  Please visit northlaketahoeexpress.com for rates and schedules.  

How far is Diamond Peak from South Shore?

We are located 25 miles from South Shore, about a 30-minute drive, depending on conditions. Just take HWY 50 East to HWY 28 — it's a beautiful drive around the lake. This drive is part of the "Most Beautiful Drive in America" as part of the Nation Scenic Byways Program. 

Is parking free? 

Parking is free but we do offer paid parking during busy weekends and peak periods for $20, while supplies last. 

Tickets, Lessons, & Rentals

Can I buy lift tickets online?

Single-day and multi-day lift tickets can be purchased online. Save $5 ticket when you purchase single day tickets in advance online (by midnight the day before). 

Who do I call to reserve a private lesson with the Ski & Snowboard School (7 years and up)?

(775) 832-1135

Who do I call to reserve a private lesson for my child (3-6 years old)?

(775) 832-1130

When should I arrive if I'm taking a lesson?

If taking a lesson, we recommend that you arrive at least an hour early to make sure you procure your ticket, get fitted with equipment, and get to your lesson on time. You should arrive even earlier during the peak periods to secure a spot and pick up your rentals. Please plan to arrive at the rental shop by 9:30 a.m. on weekends and peak days to ensure we have the appropriate size gear for you - after 9:30 a.m. we cannot guarantee all sizes will be available. 

Do you rent clothing?

No, but The Village Ski Loft has a retail store in the Base Lodge with clothing and equipment for purchase.

Hours & Conditions

What time do you open?

Lifts open at 9:00 a.m. and close at 4:00 p.m. Visit Operating Hours to see the full list of hours.

When is your busiest time?

Holidays can be busy. Please arrive early if you are coming during these peak periods. You may purchase a ticket for any day during the current ski season at the ticket booths; if you arrive in town in the afternoon and want to ski the next day, stop by before 4:00 p.m. to procure your tickets ahead of time. You can also get fitted and pick up your rentals for the next day starting at 3:00 p.m. Tickets, rentals and group lessons can also be purchased online. 

How much snow are you going to have on a certain day?

It's hard to predict the weather more than 3 - 4 days in advance, and even then it could change. 


Do you have lodging at the resort?

Diamond Peak doesn't have its own lodging, but we are located in the town of Incline Village which offers a great variety of lodging options for every budget — from 5-star resorts to quaint cabins. For the best deals on stay and ski packages or for lodging that also offers discounted lift tickets, please, visit our Lodging Page.

Can I reserve the Base Lodge for special events?

Yes, the Fireside Room or Loft Bar deck can be reserved for small groups, or the entire Base Lodge or Snowflake Lodge can be reserved after hours. Some restrictions apply; please contact our Sales Manager for more information at sales@diamondpeak.com or (775) 832-1132. Visit the Incline Facilities website to view our other facilities available for special events, weddings, and meetings such as The Chateau and Aspen Grove.

Terrain & Abilities

I am a beginner, but my wife is advanced. Is the terrain good for both of us?

Diamond Peak offers gentle beginner slopes that are perfect if you are just getting into the sport. Our Ski & Snowboard School offers private as well as group lessons to give you a solid foundation or to help get you to the next level. Diamond Peak's more advanced terrain offers challenging trails, tree skiing, open bowls, and glades for the more advanced customers. Since all runs funnel down to the Base Area, you can all have fun separately and then meet up at lunch or at the end of the day without fear of getting lost. This layout makes Diamond Peak the perfect place for people with varying ski or board abilities.

Tubing, Sledding, & Local Activities for Younger Children

Tubing and sledding are not permitted at Diamond Peak. All guests on the snow must be in ski or snowboarding equipment and possess a valid lift ticket. 

For a list of local activities, and to find links to local babysitting services, please call Incline Village Visitors Bureau at (775) 832-1606 or visit their web site: https://www.gotahoenorth.com/

Diamond Peak offers no on-site child care; however, children as young as three years old can take lessons.
