Selling/Transferring Tickets: Diamond Peak does not condone resale of Last Tracks tickets and is not responsible for fraudulent activity associated with the resale of Last Tracks tickets. Please use caution if you are purchasing Last Tracks tickets from anyone you don't know. If you are buying from an alleged ticket holder who cannot use their tickets, we highly recommend that you only purchase them in-person, and that you do so at the Diamond Peak lift ticket windows where our staff can verify you are purchasing legitimate tickets. Never send money to someone you don't know on the internet - that usually does not end well. 

Diamond Peak and IVGID reserves the right to suspend recreation privileges and/or Diamond Peak season pass privileges if Picture Pass holders are found to be reselling Last Tracks tickets for more than face value.

Tips to get the most out of your Last Tracks experience

All participants MUST be able to ski or snowboard down an intermediate run in a timely fashion (no exceptions) and be 21+ to attend. Please do not bring guests who are beginner skiers/snowboarders.

Bring layers: New for 2022, all events will take place outdoors so dress warm or bring an extra layer or two.

Stormy day procedure: Our team will assess the weather and determine if the event will be cancelled by that morning. We will post a notice on the Last Tracks page by 9:30 a.m. if the event is cancelled, with instructions on how to obtain your refund or reschedule your ticket for the backup dates (March 30 or April 6).   

Picking up your tickets: Please stop by the Diamond Peak Ticket Windows to pick up your Last Tracks tickets. Tickets may be picked prior to the event, or anytime during the day of the event (by 3:45 p.m. at the very latest). Tickets are held for the person who made the reservation.

Take advantage of the afternoon lift ticket: Last Tracks tickets include a half-day lift ticket valid from 12:30 - 4 p.m. on the day of the event. (Unless you purchased the no-lift access version, in which case you must have a season pass or other lift access to attend the event - no exceptions.) Why not spend a few hours on the slopes before the wine/beer tasting begins?

Load Lakeview chair lift: You will need to ride the Lakeview chairlift to Snowflake Lodge to attend Last Tracks, and Lakeview closes at 4 p.m. sharp! We recommend loading the chair by 3:45 p.m. or earlier. If you miss last chair, you miss the event.

Arrive at Snowflake on time (or early): Last Tracks events begin promptly at 4:00 p.m. (4:10 p.m. for March/April events) and you may miss wine/beer courses if you arrive late.

Allergies or dietary restrictions: Please email our full Last Tracks Food & Beverage team (eec@ivgid.org; wrv@ivgid.org; blh@ivgid.org) by 12 p.m. the day before your Last Tracks event. Our Food & Beverage team will try their best to accommodate dietary restrictions with the ingredients available to them at the event. Please also notify the Last Tracks host when you check in at the event so we can be sure to reserve your special plates for the right person.

Rental equipment & locker room: If you rented ski/snowboard gear from Diamond Peak or need to access the seasonal locker room after the event, please let the Last Tracks Host (who will be at the event) know. That way we'll be ready to let you back into the Rental Shop when the event is over.

Don't over indulge: Last Tracks typically involves 4-5 wine or beer tastings with appetizers. We encourage guests to know their limits and be conservative in their alcohol consumption, knowing that you still need to ski/ride down to the Base Area when the event is over. With this in mind, we also encourage you to arrange for a designated driver or other transportation home.

Ski/Ride down as a group: Guests must ski and snowboard down the designated route (which will be freshly groomed) as a group when the event is over. This way, our Ski Patrol can ensure nobody gets lost or stuck on the mountain. If you have an emergency and need to leave early, please speak with a Last Tracks Host at the event to make arrangements.

Can't make it? If you are unable to come to an event you have tickets for, you may give them to friends. You will still need to pick up the tickets yourself and can do that in advance. Diamond Peak does not keep a waiting list and will not issue refunds for unused tickets.
