Last Updated on December 1, 2022 by Usama

Beaver Creek Parking

If you’re headed to Colorado’s major ski resort, Parking Access will help you organize your trip and locate a convenient car parking space. You’ll find it in Avon, Beaver Creek Village, or near the Centennial Express Lift. Discover the daily price, hours, free parking availability, local garages, on-street restrictions, and public transportation. Bear Lot and Elk Lot are top low-cost options with free winter shuttles. For more convenience, park in the main garage structures located in an urban mountain area near restaurants. Compare on- and off-street costs to find the most suitable service or season pass for your vehicle.

Ski Resort Passes

The resort consists of three villages, the largest and main one being Beaver Creek Village. It’s a short drive away from the town of Avon, which is the gateway to the resort. To get the best access, we suggest pre-purchasing a pass online and saving 20%! Depending on the number of days you plan on spending at Beaver Creek, reserve one of the following passes:

Resort Pass Online Price Includes
Epic Day Pass $77 to $89 1 to 7 days at all resorts
Epic Local Pass $599 Access to 26 resorts
Epic Pass $799 Unlimited access to all resorts

The price of your day pass will depend on the duration of your stay. If you purchase a pass for one day only, the price will be $89, while the daily pass for a week-long stay is $77.

Beaver Creek Parking Options

Since the resort is just south of Avon, we looked into parking services in both Beaver Creek and Avon. We discovered several Beaver Creek parking facilities, including both parking garages and surface lots, and found daily and hourly rates. Alternatively, there are several free parking areas in Avon that budget travelers may find attractive! You’ll also learn about shuttle services that operate to and from several lots.

Beaver Creek Village Parking

When it comes to public parking at Beaver Creek, you have several convenient options—two surface parking lots and two garage parking structures. Bear Lot and Elk Lot are placed at the resort’s eastern and western entrances. They offer 1 hour of free parking and a flat daily parking rate of only $10. After 1 PM, parking is free of charge! If you plan to stick around, purchase a ten-day pass for $75 at any Beaver Creek Ticket Office.

Beaver Creek Elk Lot

Villa Montane Garage and Ford Hall Parking Garage are open from 7 AM to 10 PM. They are just steps from the Centennial Express Lift, and the rates depend on the time of entry:

Entry Before 3 PM Entry After 3 PM
Up to 1 hour: Free
1 to 3 hours: $15

Both facilities allow quick access to restaurants, shops, hiking trails, and the gondola. If going to the Vilar Performing Arts Center, a Beaver Creek parking garage would be a perfect choice. During the summer season, garages offer free parking!
