Shoulder Season Employee Parking

Paid Permit Shoulder Season Employee Parking

When the gondola is closed, a shoulder season parking permit is available for Heritage Parking Garage and North Village Center Lot, both of which are conveniently located in Mountain Village Center.

The number of employee permits we distribute for these lots is based on the number of employees listed on each business’s business license application. You may obtain a parking permit from the Mountain Village Police Department for a nominal annual fee of $100 and with proof of employment. Acceptable documentation includes an email or letter verifying your work from your employer. You will also need a current vehicle registration. Permit must be visible when you may park in designated permit lots.

Free Shoulder Season Employee Parking

Employees are welcome to park for free during the day in the Gondola Parking Garage without needing to obtain a permit. While shuttles run between Market Plaza and Village Center throughout the day, the garage is a quick 10-minute walk to most Mountain Village Center businesses. Please note, the rules for Gondola Parking Garage stated above apply year-round.
