Di­a­mond Peak’s ter­rain park builders, Matt Melilli and Tim Hay, are in­no­va­tors who have worked on ter­rain park builds like the U.S. Open, Dew Tour and Su­per­park events. At Di­a­mond Peak, they fo­cus on flowy park lines that al­low all rid­ers to progress and have the most fun pos­si­ble.


Lo­cated just two miles from the shores of Lake Ta­hoe, Di­a­mond Peak is where lo­cal rid­ers go when they want to skip the crowds and avoid the hype of Ta­hoe’s big­ger re­sorts—but still want to ride 1,840 feet of ver­ti­cal and find se­cret stashes of fresh snow and fun ter­rain fea­tures hid­den through­out the trees. Di­a­mond Peak does its best to keep lift tick­ets af­ford­able for all, with youth pric­ing for 13 to 23-year-olds, and dis­counts for pass hold­ers from other ski re­sorts. Also, the view is “pretty good.”


Rid­ers can ex­pect even more live mu­sic out­doors on the Sun Deck (when weather per­mits) or in­side the Loft Bar this sea­son as the re­sort ex­pands its Spring Mu­sic Se­ries into the heart of win­ter. Com­ple­ment­ing the mu­sic is an ex­panded se­lec­tion of craft beers avail­able for happy hour pric­ing in the early af­ter­noon. Di­a­mond Peak’s ter­rain park builders have com­pletely re­built the re­sort’s stock of rails, boxes, and other man-made fea­tures us­ing re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als and state-of-the-art de­sign tools to pro­vide rid­ers with a whole new slate of op­tions for this win­ter.
