Paid parking in Vail’s parking structures and outlying lots will coincide with the start of Vail Mountain’s 2016-17 ski and snowboard season, which is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 25. Parking passes are available for purchase from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout the season on the lower level of the Vail Municipal Building, 75 S. Frontage Rd. Bring proof of eligibility as restrictions apply. Note: The parking office will be closed on Thanksgiving.
The town is offering five parking pass options which provide significant discounts over the standard daily rates. Value card holders from previous seasons are asked to stop by the Municipal Building to activate new cards. Please bring proof of employment, residency or property ownership to meet qualifications.
On Wednesday, Nov. 16, the North and South Frontage Roads will be returned to their two-way alignment and the West Vail Green transit service will be reactivated for the winter season following completion of phase 2 of the Vail I-70 Underpass project. In addition, Vail Transit will be adding service to the East Vail, Sandstone, Golf Course and Lionshead Loop routes to supplement the early winter season prior to implementation of the full winter schedule on Dec. 12. Additional frequency will be added to routes with the start of the regular winter schedule which runs to mid-April.
