This season’s opening date is the resort’s earliest opening since 1994.
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (November 20, 2015) – An early abundance of natural snow along with ideal snowmaking temperatures throughout much of November have allowed Diamond Peak Ski Resort to push their planned opening date forward by a week to Thursday, Dec. 3, 2015, conditions permitting.

Diamond Peak plans to open with top-to-bottom skiing and snowboarding and access to the high-speed Crystal Express quad as well as the Lodgepole Quad and School House chair lifts, and potentially the Lakeview Quad if conditions permit.

To date, the resort has received over 20 inches of natural snow which has provided an ideal base for the snowmaking team’s pre-season efforts. 

According to Interim General Manager Mike Bandelin, “The cold temperatures we’ve had in November have allowed us to operate our snowmaking system at or near its capacity for over 130 hours so far, meaning we’re almost a full month ahead of where we were with snowmaking last year. And with more natural snow and cold temperatures in the forecast for Thanksgiving week, we’re confident that the skiing and riding will be great by our early opening date of December 3.”

The planned December 3 opening date is the resort’s earliest since the 1994/95 ski season.
