Common Consumption Area

On May 16, 2019, the Mountain Village Town Council approved the Mountain Village Promotional Association’s request to expand its Common Consumption Area (CCA) in Sunset Plaza throughout the majority of Mountain Village Center.

The Common Consumption Area will be in effect beginning June 15 and will run in conjunction with the gondola operating season with occasional blackout dates due to special events. The hours will be noon to 9 p.m. daily.

Similar to concerts in Sunset Plaza, the newly expanded CCA will allow for the purchase of alcoholic beverages in approved cups from participating licensed establishments and enables for consumption throughout much of the plazas in the Village Center. No outside alcoholic beverages are allowed into the area and only drinks purchased from participating licensed establishments in approved cups may be approved throughout the plazas.
