It is no secret that parking in Breckenridge, Colorado has been an issue for many years.  If you are planning on coming to Breckenridge this winter or summer, check out our insider’s guide on some of the best parking spots in town, tailored to the length of your stay:

1.) Single-day Parking for Breckenridge Resort

Whether you’re biking, hiking, skiing or just visiting the base of Breckenridge’s beautiful peaks, we have a few recommendations of where to park! To access the base of peak 9, F-Lot would be the best parking lot. The closest lots to the gondola are the North and South Gondola Lots. Once on the gondola, you will have access to the base of peaks 7 and 8.

2.) Overnight Parking

If you are staying somewhere with limited or no parking, Breck Park offers overnight parking for up to 14 days at the Airport Road Lot. This costs $5 per 24 hours Monday-Thursday, and $10 per 24 hours Friday-Sunday. From here, you can utilize the free bus system in town. Breckenridge is also very walkable so in many cases, a car is not needed.
