Telluride Mountain Parking
The Station Village Parking Garage has free skier parking throughout the day. This parking garage has access to a free gondola that will bring skiers and riders to the Mountain Village. You can see this garage in the photo to the right with the Sunshine Express Chairlift running next to the parking structure.
You can also walk right onto the beginner ski trail; Double Cabin, from the Station Village garage. This trail will bring you down to Big Billie’s Restaurant, the base of the Chondola, and some of the easiest ski terrain at Telluride.
To access the paid parking garages at Telluride; just continue straight on Mountain Village blvd after you go through the information gate that you can see in the photo at the top of this page. Then just follow the signs to the Heritage Parking Garage. You can see photos of the entrance to the Heritage Garage below.
If you continue past the Heritage Parking Garage you can park in the Village Center. Both of these areas will cost $2/hour with a maximum charge of $30/day.
There are also several short term parking lots for shoppers and other mountain guests. You’ll be able to find these areas by following the signs throughout the Mountain Village.
