There are a few things to keep in mind when planning your visit to Diamond Peak, especially if you are new to the world of skiing. Since you will be in a snow-capped area, appropriate clothing is essential. Avoid wearing anything too bulky so that you can move about freely while you ski. Make sure you enquire early about the lessons and rentals you need. Sometimes, especially during the peak season and holidays, Diamond Peak can get crowded and the ratio of instructors to visitors is not suitable for a proper lesson. Hence, make your booking well ahead, either the moment you get there or in advance through their website to ensure that you don’t end up being disappointed and have to miss out on all the fun.
Diamond Peak itself doesn't have any lodging facilities, but they do have tie-ups with a variety of local hotels and homestays. That being said, though, the resort does have plentiful eating options where you can have a nice lunch overlooking the mountain top.
Unless you plan to stay here and ski for weeks on end, it isn’t advisable to buy your ski equipment before coming to Diamond Peak.

However, should you plan to take on skiing as a serious hobby, getting comfortable with your own equipment is most definitely recommended.
