Diamond Peak Ski Resort in Nevada at Lake Tahoe & Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging & webcams. Diamond Peak Ski Resort is located at the Incline Village in North Lake Tahoe, Nevada. It opened in November 1966 under its original name, Ski Incline. It was not until the late 1980’s that the name Diamond Peak emerged due to the addition of more advanced terrain. Diamond Peak Ski Resort and the Incline Village are the result of two men with a vision, Art Wood and Harold Tillier. They hired Luggi Foeger from Austria and with his resort development skills, opened Diamond Peak (Ski Incline) with 3 chairlifts and a T-Bar. Perhaps a little known fact is that Diamond Peak (Ski Incline) was one of the pioneers in the art of snowmaking to protect against times when Mother Nature isn’t so generous. Diamond Peak Ski Resort overlooks and offers spectacular views of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Don’t forget your camera!

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know…before the snow.
