Parking & Shuttles

2020/21 Update

If you’ve been here already this winter you’ve probably noticed some changes to parking and shuttles. We have added two skier/rider drop off lanes in the hotel lot, which can be used to drop off members of your party with their gear before you park your car. By utilizing the drop off lane you will help reduce numbers on our shuttles, which are currently operating at 50% capacity.

  • We’ve also converted two rows of the hotel valet lot to short term, 30-minute parking. These spots can be used for quick trips to the village to pick up food, stop in retail shops, or visit guest services.
  • Our parking lot shuttles will continue to drop off at the Base Lodge, but Sugarloaf Explorer shuttles servicing condos and other valley locations are now dropping off in the hotel lot.
  • Masks are required when riding the shuttles.
