SKIER parking TIPS

Parking in Breckenridge this winter is easy and more convenient than ever with a variety of pay and free parking options. Use these tips to find the parking that's right for you:





PEAK 9:(ski season only)

  • Take Village Road to Beaver Run. The west side of Beaver Run (bus turnaround) provides spaces for immediate drop off - driver must stay with vehicle. The east side of Beaver Run provides 15-minute parking spaces. 


  • 15-minute parking is available at the entrance to the South Gondola Lot directly across from Breckenridge Station at 151 Watson Ave. Check out the Skier Parking Map for directions.  

ice rink:

  • The Ice Rink located at 189 Boreas Pass is a great alternative location for Skier Drop-Off / Pick Up. Ski Resort and Town of Breckenridge Free Ride buses make continuous loops from the Ice Rink to Peak 9 and the Gondola throughout the ski day.   

park within walking distance of lifts (pay parking):

The Town offers three pay parking locations with 389 parking spaces within walking distance to the ski area. The F-Lot and Tiger Dredge lot offer easy access to Peak 9 and the Village Base area. The Wellington lot offers easy access to Peak 7 and 8 via the Gondola. Each location is conveniently located near Main Street for easy access to a variety of shopping and dining opportunities.

The Ski Resort offers pay parking options including the North and South Gondola lots and Beaver Run lot. Click here for more information.

free parking all day:

The Town offers the Satellite Lot (500 spaces) for free all day skier parking. Click Here for more information including maps. This lot is serviced by the resort's FREE shuttle buses every 7-12 minutes from 8am to 6pm with convenient drop off at teh Gondola.

free after three:

Avoid I-70 traffic! The Tiger Dredge, Wellington, and East Sawmill lots are FREE after 3pm. Traffic leaving Breckenridge on Highway 9 as well as I-70 is heavily congested between 1pm and 6pm. If you park in an outlying parking lot like the Satellite lot, drive to Town after 3pm and enjoy free parking.

convert your day-trip into an overnight stay:

Keep an eye on the weather while you're here and consider staying overnight if driving conditions are unsafe. To keep track of I-70 road conditions, visit or call toll free 1-877-315-7623.
