Diamond Peak is a ski resort located in Incline Village, NV at Northern Lake Tahoe. The resort has 6 chairlifts, 30 runs, open glades, and tree skiing in 655 acres (2.65 km2) of terrain. It has a vertical drop of 1,840 feet (6th longest at Lake Tahoe). Its season ranges from December to April, and its longest run is 2.5 Miles. Lifts include the "Lakeview Quad" which features a view of Lake Tahoe during the lift's ascent.

Incline Creek and its associated trail ascends gradually to Camp Folsom and back to the Diamond Peak Resort.

Oklahoman entrepreneur Art Wood and his associate Harold Tiller envisioned the idea for the resort which was then known as "Ski Incline", and was developed to reality in 1966 by Luggi Foeger, a famous Austrian ski resort consultant whom Wood hired to design and build the resort. It has long since expanded and grown since its debut in November, 1966.
