Stowe Resort reminds visitors of new parking policy
STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) - As skiers and riders return to the slopes for the start of the season, Stowe Mountain Resort is reminding visitors of its new parking policy.
Earlier this year, the resort introduced its winter parking plan in an effort to curb traffic at the resort. They sold a limited number of passes before the start of the season, each for $450.
Spaces are also $30 per day on weekends, which must be paid for using an app. Cars with four or more guests are free.
Adam White with Stowe Mountain Resort says they’ll base the plan’s success on how smooth operations are.
“Those traffic issues were more talked about than the parking policy is for sure, so this is what’s being done to address that. Now it’s a matter of, ‘Let’s get into the season, let’s see how the policy works on December 2, when it gets enacted and see what kind of effect it has and we’ll go from there,’” White said. “We can certainly handle the volume, but it’s got to be managed properly, and this parking policy aims to do that.”
As White mentioned, the policy goes into effect on Dec. 2. The resort says parking will remain free at all lots Monday through Thursday during nonholiday periods, and all lots are free after 2 p.m.
