Parking & Shuttles

Skier/Rider Dropoff

To make your arrival more convenient, we have added two skier/rider drop off lanes in the hotel lot, which you can use to drop off members of your party with their gear before you park your car. 

Sugarloaf Explorer Shuttles will also drop off in this lot, while parking lot shuttles will drop off at the Base Lodge.
