INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (Dec. 2, 2019) – With over three feet of new snow falling on Diamond Peak Ski Resort over the Thanksgiving holiday period, the resort is gearing up for an early opening on Saturday, December 7.
The Lake Tahoe resort had originally scheduled Opening Day for Thursday, Dec. 12; but recent cold temperatures permitted non-stop snowmaking operations last week, and the Thanksgiving storm cycle delivered 40 inches of natural snow, allowing the resort to announce top-to-bottom skiing and riding will be available this Saturday.
“With the amount of snow we just received and the conditions reports we’re getting from our Slope Maintenance team on the hill, we just had to open up a little early this year,” said Mike Bandelin, Diamond Peak general manager. “We really hope that a lot of our pass holders and other longtime friends will stop by and get in some early-season turns with us this December.”
Diamond Peak will open with top-to-bottom terrain and four chair lifts on the schedule – Crystal Express, Lakeview, Lodgepole and School House – accessing beginner, intermediate and advanced runs on the mountain. Diamond Peak’s full-service rental and repair shop will be open starting Dec. 7, and all adult and child lesson programs will be available including beginner packages, private lessons and all Child Ski Center programs.
As a special perk for early-season skiers and riders, Diamond Peak will offer discounted Value Season pricing on all lift ticket, rental and lesson products from Dec. 7 through Dec. 20, 2019. For more information on runs and terrain that will be open at Diamond Peak, please see the Conditions page on DiamondPeak.com and check out the on-mountain web cams available on the website. Reservations for lessons can be made by calling 775-832-1177.
