Winter Park Resort to charge for some lots
Winter Park Resort will charge for parking in the Vintage Lot, Lot B and Lot C starting Nov. 18, according to a press release from the resort.
The cost for parking will be $15 for a full day or $10 for a half day.
Lots F and G, North Bench, Lone Tree, Blue Spruce, Old Town and all Mary Jane lots will remain free, the release states.
Guests can pay at pay stations located at the pedestrian exits of each lot or via the cellphone app Parkmobile.
Season passes will be available for $449 with unlimited parking at the Vintage Lot, Lot B and Lot C, or $319 for midweek parking at those lots, according to the press release.
“The new policy allows guests convenient access to lots that quickly fill up, allowing them the option of arriving later, a potential boon to families who struggle to make it to the resort by the time the lifts open yet still require parking close to the base,” the release states.
The price to park at the Village Garage will be $22 for a full day and $15 for a half-day beginning at noon.
From 3 p.m. to 7 a.m. all parking will be free.
The resort will continue a free shuttle service from lots F and G starting at 7:30 a.m. daily and ending at 10 p.m. Park-N-Ride Shuttles from Old Town lots will run on weekends and holidays from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., according to the press release.
“This summer, Winter Park Resort completed a number of paving projects designed to enhance vehicle access in and around the resort while still remaining cognizant of environmental concerns,” the press release states. “Repurposed asphalt from CDOT’s Berthoud Pass repaving project was used on the Mary Jane road, the Vintage road, as well as in the North Bench parking lot, increasing ease of access and expediting pick-up/drop-off.”

Ponds on a ranch in northwestern Colorado last week were full, a rare treat in recent years for horses that have gathered like at a spa. It was a good winter there, cold and snowy.…
