The Vail Town Council will soon be returning to the topic of summer parking and possible ways to make improvements. This past summer there were 22 overflow days on the Frontage Road; the Lionshead structure filled 58 days while the Vail Village structure filled 32 days. We invite you to share your thoughts and observations about this topic. What have you experienced first-hand and what advice do you have for Vail’s decision-makers?

I was quite disgusted when I found out that Vail would be charging for summer parking once again. I was hoping that last year’s trial would end after last summer.

So, I just cancelled our hotel reservations for the summer. This would have been our 8th summer in Vail.

There needs to be a system for customers staying in hotels to be allowed to park overnight without paying. I understand wanting to keep outsiders from staying parked in the garage overnight but at least accommodate and reward those of us who are paying to stay in Vail.

We paid last year without knowing when we got there. It’s the principle of the matter and no way to treat your loyal customers. It just seems very money hungry and not necessary.

Makes no sense for those of us who want to legitimately stay in Vail. Pay for hotel. Eat at Vail restaurants. Pay for the summer activities on the mountain. Shop at Vail shops.

You could very easily have a key card like a hotel does and scan it for the duration of one’s stay.

We usually stay 7-10 nights in Vail.

The Red Sandstone parking garage looks like it is across the highway and again, only up to 3 days?

Why would y’all do anything to discourage anyone from staying in Vail for a week or so? That’s a lot of money for the town of Vail.

Again, it’s the principle of the matter that I had to pay $300 in parking last summer. That’s ludicrous!

Y’all could easily cater to tourists staying in Vail but you just choose not to.
