Plan on visiting Colorado’s major ski resort and need information on public parking, hotels, or ski passes? We have the answers you’re looking for! Parking Access offers a comprehensive guide to Beaver Creek parking that includes all resort parking options, rates, accommodation, and season passes. Go through it to learn how to find the most convenient parking spot, where to stay, and how much money to set aside.
Beaver Creek 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.
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
3 to 4 hours: $25
Over 4 hours: $35
|Up to 3 hours: Free
3 to 4 hours: $25
Over 4 hours: $35
Both facilities allow quick access to restaurants, shops, hiking trails, and the gondola. If going to the Vilar Performing Arts Center, any Beaver Creek parking garage would be a perfect choice. During the summer season, garages offer free parking!
Avon Parking—Free Parking Spots
Avon offers plenty of complimentary parking spaces located throughout the town, including both street parking and various lots. These facilities also provide access to free shuttle buses and Riverfront Express Gondola that can get you to the resort in no time! See the list below to discover where to find a free spot, depending on the duration of your stay:
|All-Day Parking||2 or 3 Hours of Parking|
|Old Town Hall East Parking Lot||Avon Recreation Center|

Transportation to Beaver Creek + Airport Shuttles
In addition to the free inter-resort shuttle, visitors can use several other transportation options to travel around the area. The Town of Avon also provides free buses to Beaver Creek Village from 8 AM to 5:30 PM. If you search for a budget-friendly ride within Eagle County, ECO Transit buses can get you to Vail, Edwards, Eagle, and Gypsum. For a faster and more comfortable transfer, consider using High Mountain Taxi. It provides door-to-door service to many locations in the area, including Eagle County Regional Airport.
