Towering 8,564 feet above the town is the Incline Village resort of Diamond Peak. It's a central feature, impossible to miss visually or in terms of the impact it has on the town. That impact started in 1966 when this Incline Village ski resort was the first in the West to install a snow-making system. This meant that this Incline Village ski resort could claim area skiers whether there was fresh Mother Nature-supplied snow on the mountain or fresh Manmade-supplied white stuff. Quite the boon.
Diamond Peak's 655 acres are covered with bowls and tree runs and terrain that's exciting for all levels of skiing skill. If you can handle it, the 1,840-foot vertical drop will pump up your adrenaline ... like, really pump it up. If you're not quite up to that yet, try out one of their ski schools for either private or group lessons.
Just a short drive away is Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe, another Incline Village resort that's been around since the '60s. If you're a beginner, or close to it, you'll find slopes here you can handle. But if you're already expert at your snow sport, this Incline Village resort will give you a run for your money. And, we're talking about a 2.5-mile to the bottom of the mountain type of run!
Incline Village Resorts Embrace Beauty
Including Crystal Bay Resorts
Incline Village's resorts add in eateries that offer great food, craft beer and slow-smoked barbecue. That's worth getting down that vertical intact, right!?
But before you start your descent at either of these Incline Village resorts, take a pause. Look around you. Take it in, this beauty of Lake Tahoe, the Washoe Valley and the Humbolt-Toiyabe Range. It's quite the view.
