Dear Media Partner,
Thank you very much for taking the time to learn about Diamond Peak Ski Resort during our 51st season of operations. If you have never experienced Diamond Peak, this press kit should be a good introduction; however, the best way to get acquainted with this unique resort is to come see it for yourself. If you ski or snowboard we’d be happy to give you a full tour of the mountain this winter. Base area tours can also be arranged for those less inclined to sliding on the snow.
Diamond Peak is located on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, near the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, renowned restaurants, and the highest concentration of ski resorts in North America. Diamond Peak is known for amazing views, affordable prices, uncrowded slopes and a friendly atmosphere that families love.
Way back in 1966, while the community of Incline Village was still in its defining stages, Oklahoma native Art Wood envisioned a four-season resort community – a “Pebble Beach of the Sierra” – and hired Austrian ski consultant Luggi Foeger to design and build Ski Incline (as Diamond Peak was then called) as one of the pillars of that vision.
After only four months of construction, Ski Incline opened its lifts in November of 1966 with a skier-friendly layout on the lower mountain of the resort. In 1987, ski resort manager Jurgen Wetzstein led the development of the upper mountain with the addition of the Crystal Quad to the top of the peak – an expansion that doubled the resort’s skiable acreage and added more advanced terrain. The addition also spurred the name change to Diamond Peak.
This season, Diamond Peak skiers and riders can take advantage of amazing deals like Flex Pass multiday tickets with daily rates as low as $50 per day, $44 Bring Your Other Pass ticket deals, $74 daily Adult lift ticket rates, and free lift tickets for kids 6 and under and those over 80 years old.
Should you require photos, you can access a great selection at this shared Google Drive folder
(Note: Please read the photo usage agreement found in that folder.)
You’ll see from our photos that Diamond Peak offers some of the most incredible views of Lake Tahoe. Views of the lake are best seen from Crystal Ridge and Snowflake Lodge, but guests can also enjoy lake views from the beginner slopes, Base Lodge deck and even the parking lot. Our HD webcams, mounted on the top of Crystal Ridge and at Snowflake Lodge, allow you to enjoy these views and check conditions from the comfort of your screen.
If you have any further questions, need additional material, or would like to come tour the mountain on assignment, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you and connecting on social media.
