Easter Egg Hunt

The big egg hunt starts right when the lifts open at 9am, so you'll want to get here early! Eggs are hidden all over the mountain, including golden eggs with special prizes in them.

Join us for the 16th Annual Dummy Downhill where participants build a dummy on skis or snowboards that get launched off of a big jump and watch as unique characters fly down the hill or crash hard. This is the flugtag for dummies! Dummies will be judged on creativity on the Base Lodge deck, followed by the jumping and an awards ceremony. Prizes and certificates will be awarded for creativity, best crash, furthest distance, and more.

Diamond Peak was so affordable. What a perfect way to take the family on a ski vacation, and not break the "f" bank! EJ Norel
