STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) - Stowe Mountain Resort says it will start charging for parking next winter for low occupancy vehicles on busy holiday weekends.

It will now cost drivers $30 to park Friday through Sunday and on holidays at all lots. The resort says parking will be free at all lots Monday through Thursday during non-holiday periods and after 2 p.m. every day. They say free parking will also be offered at all times to cars with four or more people.

The move seeks to address longstanding congestion problems at the resort and Stowe Mountain Road on busy ski weekends. In recent years, traffic has been backed up several miles on the two-lane road with visitors sometimes waiting for hours. The resort and community have tried to address the problem by encouraging drivers to park and take shuttle buses. Stowe’s Development Review Board last year rejected a proposed parking lot aimed at relieving parking pressures.

The Cross Country Center and Toll House will remain free seven days a week.
