Diamond Peak will embark on the 2013-14 ski season with plenty of changes that will make this friendly ski resort in Incline Village an even better place to ski or snowboard.
Diamond Peak will feature terrain based teaching, more dates for the resort’s signature Last Tracks event, improved gladed skiing and riding through our on-mountain defensible space project, a reciprocal pass relationship with Homewood Mountain Resort, increased snowmaking capacity, and the launch of a brand new DiamondPeak.com.
Improved Glade Skiing and Riding: 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 Battleborn and Sunnyside, located off of Crystal Ridge.
Season Pass Perks with Homewood: Diamond Peak and Homewood Mountain Resort have announced a reciprocal Season Pass program, in which Season Pass holders will receive 4 free, non-holiday lift tickets to the other resort. The partnership also includes Red Lodge Mountain, Montana. Restrictions apply.
Beginner Lessons: Diamond Peak will introduce Terrain Based Teaching into all beginner lessons, a method that has proven successful throughout the industry. Terrain based teaching involves incorporating small terrain features into the beginner lesson as part of the learning progression.
Increased Snowmaking Capacity: Diamond Peak added five new fan guns, boosting the snowmaking fleet by 50 percent and significantly increasing snowmaking capacity when conditions warrant.
Last Tracks: This season every Saturday (February through April) will include wineries, several craft breweries and a few themed events including a special Valentine’s Day.
Website Facelift: DiamondPeak.com will launch early November, making it easier for guests to navigate and prepare for their visit.
Face/Off Fridays and College Deals: Every Friday (Feb. 28-March 28) Diamond Peak will host a special event series for college students and those who just like to start their weekend early. Face/Off Fridays will kick off the weekend and feature deals for college students, rail jam competitions, games, prizes and DJs spinning tracks.
