Skiing and snowboarding around Salt Lake City this winter will require some planning ahead. Due to large amounts of people flocking to popular Utah Ski Resorts, parking has become a challenge to navigate. Here at White Cloud Concierge we have created a 2023-2024 Utah Ski Area Parking Guide to help you navigate parking reservations and keep costs down this winter.
Plan ahead this season for your skiing and riding commutes and try your best to carpool to the mountains. The 2023-2024 Utah Ski Area Parking Guide aims to ensure skiers and riders have a guaranteed parking spot, reduce early morning traffic congestion in the canyons and save you more valuable time!
For the 2023-24 winter season, Snowbird Ski Resort will continue its hybrid parking program, similar to the previous season. Guests have several options for parking, including free lots on a first-come, first-served basis, reserved daily parking for a fee, and the option to purchase a Preferred Parking Pass (which is sold out for the 2023-2024 season).
Free parking is available at various lots, including Entry 1, Upper Gad Valley Lot, Wilbere Hill, Main Lot, and others. Carpoolers with four or more people can access designated parking spots in specific lots, and discounted rates are offered for the Lower Gad Valley Preferred Parking Lot. Snowbird encourages carpooling and offers surprise giveaways on select peak traffic days through the Canyon Carpool Club.
Reserved parking spots can be booked in advance for the Lower Gad Valley or Pond Preferred Parking Lots. Missed reservations are non-refundable, but they can be refunded via the parkwhiz app by 7 am on the day of the reservation.
