What’s New at Diamond Peak for 2015/16


New for the 2015-16 season, Diamond Peak will add new perks for season passholders, improved gladed terrain, more taps in the Loft Bar, and more ways to save. Here are some reasons to visit Diamond Peak this winter: 

New Season Pass Perks: Diamond Peak 2015-16 season passholders will enjoy new perks this season. New perks include Bonus Resort Credit, Resort Coupon Books, Bring-A-Friend Tickets, and additional bonus lift tickets. The new Bonus Resort Credit, $25 for Adult full passes or $15 for other paid full passes, will be loaded onto Diamond Peak season passes purchased by October 31, 2015. Skiers and snowboarders who buy their pass during the early bird sale (which ends Oct. 31st) also get a Resort Coupon Book valid for extra discounts on lessons, rentals, repairs, and more. Every passholder qualifies for four discounted $50 Bring-A-Friend Tickets. 

Diamond Peak Ski Resort season passholders now receive a total of 24 complimentary non-holiday bonus days, four each at: Boreal Mountain Resort, June Mountain Ski Area, Homewood Mountain Resort, Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort, Red Lodge Mountain and Whitefish Mountain Montana. As part of this partnership, Diamond Peak season passholders also receive $150 off 2016 Woodward Tahoe Summer Camps, 50% off Woodward Tahoe CORE Memberships, and a complimentary 1-hour Woodward Tahoe Bunker Session. Some restrictions apply. Visit DiamondPeak.com for details and full list of perks. 

Peak Pledge: Diamond Peak now offers a 100% money back guarantee for refunds requested by January 15th on unused Season Passes. No insurance or doctor’s note needed. Just come to Guest Services by January 15th if you have not used your 2015-16 pass and would like a refund.

Improved Glade Skiing and Riding: Diamond Peak continues to improve the health and safety of the forest and ski trails with the defensible space program. Forest thinning during the summer helps reduce fire danger by increasing defensible space, but has the added benefit of making tree skiing even better. Look for new off-piste skiable terrain in the trees between Diamondback and Spillway, located off of Crystal Ridge. 

New Ski & Snowboard Equipment: The Diamond Peak Rental & Repair shop will carry the latest skis and snowboards available for demo rentals this season. Try top-of-the-line equipment from Salomon, Rossignol, K2, Volkl & Lib Tech as well as the latest Burton snowboards. The Rossignol Soul7 is a great all mountain ski and the new Salomons are great for carving. Ladies will love the new Volkl line, made for women. 

New Electric Vehicle Charging Stations: Two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations were installed at Diamond Peak in the spring of 2014 allowing drivers to charge their EVs while on the go and fully charge their EV in a matter of hours. The four Eaton 70-am 240V J1772 Level 2 chargers are networked via ChargePoint. ChargePoint requires a membership but are free for the public to use for the first five years. 

Ski More, Save More with the Flex Pass: The more you ski, the more you save with a Flex Pass multiday ticket. Available in 2-7 day increments, this direct-to-lift pass is fully transferable, can be used any day and is valid all season. 

Wednesday 55+ Ski Clinic Series: Diamond Peak will offer a special ski clinic series for Adults 55+ as part of the Incline Village Recreation Center Senior Programs. This 10-week program will now be available as a full series, daily lesson, or 5-pack. The 5-pack allows skiers to choose any five lessons to attend in the series. Diamond Peak’s PSIA certified instructors will provide beginner, intermediate, and advanced instruction. Instruction is designed to help skiers improve, adjust, or modify techniques and encourage lifelong skiing. Re-entry skiers are welcome! Register at the Incline Village Recreation Center (980 Incline Way), or call (775) 832-1310.

Three & Free Guarantee: Diamond Peak will offer a new lesson program for beginners called the Three & Free Guarantee. Beginners pay only $119 for a Diamond Club Membership, which includes: three beginner packages complete with rental equipment, group lessons and beginner lift tickets. Once Diamond Club Members complete the three lessons they earn a free all-mountain lift ticket and 1-day equipment rental. The Three & Free program is offered Tuesday-Thursday, non-holiday, for ages 4 and up. Ages 7+ can register at the Diamond Peak ticket windows for a ski or snowboard Diamond Club membership; ages 4-7 can register at the Child Ski Center (ski only). 

Wild Bill’s BBQ at Snowflake Lodge: Wild Bill’s BBQ, now located on Diamond Peak’s Snowflake Lodge, will offer authentic BBQ fare, slow cooked and smoked with house-made barbecue sauces, tasty sides, salads, breakfast, soups and more. Offerings include smoked tri-tip, chicken, pulled pork, pork ribs, burgers, and sausages. Wild Bill’s BBQ at Snowflake Lodge will be open 7 days a week this ski season with an early happy hour from 2-4pm. 

Improved Beer Selection in the Loft Bar: Diamond Peak’s Loft Bar, located on the top floor of the Base Lodge, will increase the number of beers on tap to twelve. The dozen taps will include the current selection of favorites, local brews and rotating craft beer handles. 

SNOWsat Grooming Technology: Last season Diamond Peak debuted PistenBully’s new SNOWsat technology for the United States. The initial season was a success, allowing groomers to provide excellent conditions in a dry year. These GPS-enhanced snow groomers generate a cartographic image of the slopes used to accurately measure snow depths and ensure the best coverage for skiers and riders.
