Parking in Vail

Parking Information

Let us remove the worry and hassle when parking in Vail.  There are two main parking structures in Vail:  Vail Village and Lionshead. Additional parking is available in the Red Sandstone parking garage on the North Frontage Road and Ford Park (when there is no event).


Summer daytime parking is free and overnight parking is $35.

Solaris parking garage (141 E. Meadow Dr.) offers paid parking and is privately operated.

Winter Parking rates:  up to 2 hours free, 2 – 3 hours $10, 3 – 4 hours $20, 4 – 15 hours $30 and 15 – 24 hours $50.

Free parking in the structures for vehicles ENTERING AFTER 3:00pm until 3:00am.  Vehicles parked at 1pm will be charged the 2-3 hour rate.

Free Satellite Parking with bus service, 7am – 11pm at the following locations based on availability:

Red Sandstone Park
North Frontage Road, across from West Vail Mall
North Frontage Road, in West Vail
Donovan Park

Frontage Road Free Overflow Parking until 11pm:
Free overflow parking on the South Frontage Road is allowed once both parking structures are full. Please refer to the variable message signs located at the Vail Town Center off ramps (exit 176) and Main Vail roundabout to make sure the overflow parking option has been officially activated. Once the Frontage Road has been released for overflow use, park on the I-70 (north) side of the roadway, leaving as much shoulder area as possible for your safety, avoid blocking driveways and leave plenty of space, as much as 50 feet, at intersections. Perimeters on the Frontage Road which prohibit parking will be marked.
