Diamond Peak set to open with 3 lifts on Dec. 12

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Diamond Peak is on schedule to open next Thursday with 1,840 feet of vertical skiing, resort general manager Brad Wilson said Wednesday.

Tuesday’s small snow storm, coupled with plummeting temperatures Wednesday and into the weekend, has provided plenty of coverage, Wilson said, and around-the-clock snowmaking will give the mountain a solid base.

As of this week, Diamond Peak figures to have the Lodgepole, Schoolhouse and Crystal Express lifts open by next Thursday. More terrain and lifts could be open, dependent on weather, he said.

In related news, resort staff is continuing to work with SE Group, a mountain resort planning firm, on Diamond Peak’s master plan update.

Wilson said an update on progress — including results of a survey about the possibility of summer operations at the resort — will likely be presented to the Incline Village General Improvement District board of trustees some time in January.
