Diamond Peak Photo 3
       Looking at the eastern section of the peak and ski runs, which was simply another unamed mountain peak until Thanksgiving 1987, when the owners of Ski Incline which was on the other side of the Mount Rose Summit bought 655-acres of the mountain and developed their new ski park and named it Diamond Peak, as it offers priceless views of Lake Tahoe, as priceless as a diamond itself.  Towering above the mountain is Ellis Peak, with leftover snowfall in May 2002.
