My wife made good progress during her fourth time on skis thanks to the instructors at Diamond. They offered good explanations, which was a real plus as English is not her native tongue. She was pleased with her progress and came home tired but happy.

We took the kids to Incline for their first ski experience. We wanted to make sure the kids got lesson on their first visit and Diamond peak had many options (groups, private, half and full day) so it was easy to accommodate our schedules. We decided to try the morning session which turned out to be great. We dropped them off at 10:00am and I sat in the Lodge and gathered them back at noon and we had lunch before they went on their own the rest of day.

Instructors were great and the kids seemed to really like them and enjoy the experience. Definitely a plus for fist timers. They obviously learned the basics and were able to take the lifts and hit the easy slopes the rest of the day. I didn't expect that but that was excellent.

Also, if you stay at the Hyatt, you can just rent skis, boots and poles all at the hotel prior and set up all the lessons prior to going to Diamond Peak! They even have a shuttle. Very easy and convenient. Also, lastly, get the Diamond Peak discount cards at Costco before you come for great ease and savings. You buy $100 cards for $79.99 and you can use them at the Hyatt shop or at any venue at Diamond Peak. Big savings. Great place and location for a beginner trip and just a simple and fun family outing.

Had a lesson with Jim. He was a nice guy and really knows what he is talking about. He used to compete professionally and ran a ski academy. The downside was the $180 price tag and the fact we never really went over anything to do with the boots or skiis. My first tumble, I didn't know I had to push the clamp down to lock my boot in because we never went over that.

We had a great time here at diamond peak. My five yr old and seven hr old had a full day lesson. The instructors all seemed to be great!!! By the end of the day, they both knew what they were doing. And it was their first time ever on skis!! The perfect long slight slope to learn on!!
My husband and nine year old did the other runs and really enjoyed it. Even when the snow was just about gone!! End of season, but we will be back!!
