Here is a look at what is happening this winter on and off the mountain. With two storms on the way, Bryan from OpenSnow is predicting a possible 2 feet of new snow at Diamond Peak by the end of the weekend. This should allow mountain operations to finish opening all the terrain. With more terrain and more snow, get ready for all that Diamond Peak has on offer on the mountain and all the fun and Après ski events in town.
