New Parking Rules at Winter Park - Page 2

post #31 of 33

That's outrageous--you shouldn't have to strain your ski legs like that! Good to know, thank you. If I drive down that way, I'll be sure to leave one space to my right for you!

Yes parking at Mary Jane in the morning is easy and convenient. The Parking situation at the Winter Park base is bad and the new rules make it worse. If your stuff is in your Comp Center locker and you need to get on the snow by 8:30, the fact that there is parking near the Super Gauge lift is not all that helpful.

Another interesting thing I heard relates to why this is the case. I don't know if this is true, but I heard that the reason development is so limited (and thus why parking is not squeezed out by said development) is that the land at the base of Mary Jane is US Forest Service land. Thus they couldn't build condos or charge for parking if they wanted to. Which I'm sure they do want to.

Hey, chalk one up for big (acreage wise) government.
