More than 2,000 spaces are available in the various lots surrounding the resort bases. There are three large free lots and two paid parking lots. Free spaces make up the bulk of the parking real estate, but that still won’t cover everyone who wants a shot at the slopes.
FREE: The Lot Next to First Time Lift
The most crowded and sought-after lot is the one right next to the First Time lift. Unsurprisingly, that lot is called the First Time Parking Lot. Don’t bother to prowl here if you aren’t an early bird. Your time will be better spent patrolling the Main Parking Lot. It is the largest and most accessible lot at the resort base, located right across from the bus lane and the Mountain Village plaza.
PAID: Under the Mountain Village
If you don’t mind paying, you can opt for a spot under Mountain Village itself. For $25, you can get out of the cold and store your car in the peace of an underground garage. Spots are limited, but the need to pay a daily fee dramatically cuts down on the competition. A mere $25 seems like a small price to pay compared to the time and gas you might waste waiting for an opening. If that seems like a steep fee, carpoolers enjoy a discount that brings rates down to $12-$15. Just make sure you’ve got at least three adults in the car. Similar rules apply to the small preferred lot just outside the garage.
