🅿️ Take the stress out of travel with quick & easy parking options at Snowbird.

Parking reservations not required.

Winter 2024-25 Parking

Snowbird’s parking program for the 2024-25 season will remain the same hybrid approach that was used during the 2023-24 season. Snowbird offers a variety of ways to park and enjoy the mountain, including the ability to park in free lots on a first-come, first-served basis, pay for reserved daily parking in advance or purchase a Preferred Parking Pass (sold out for the 2024-25 season). This hybrid approach allows the majority of parking areas be accessible for free, while Snowbird guests who enjoy the security of reserving a spot in advance can continue to do so.

Snowbird continues to focus on encouraging and celebrating carpooling with expanded carpool parking areas and the Canyon Carpool Club program.
