Diamond Peak celebrates 50 years

In the 1960s, entrepreneur Art Wood envisioned a vacation community on Tahoe’s North Shore he dubbed the Pebble Beach of the Sierra, which included Diamond Peak Ski Resort, then called Ski Incline. Designed by the renowned Luggi Foeger in 1966, the resort was built to offer a variety of terrain, easy access from Incline Village, breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe and north-facing slopes.
