Vail Parking Rates Set for 2017-2018 Season; Pass Sales Begin Oct. 30 with Incentive for Early Purchase
For the first time in 10 years, winter parking rates will increase for users of the Vail Village and Lionshead parking structures as well as pricing adjustments for season pass holders. In approving the new fee structure at its Oct. 3 meeting, Vail Town Council members said the modifications were necessary to help meet the town’s goal to limit the amount of overflow parking on the south frontage road and to encourage use of free outlying parking. Another change will shorten the free parking period in the structures to be offset by a recommended merchant validation system to improve availability of close-in parking.
