Breck Parking & Resort Transportation Guide

Getting Here & Parking

With a variety of in town parking lots, a pedestrian-friendly downtown and a free in-town transportation options, there truly is no need for a car when you visit Breck. Shuttles like the Epic Mountain Express can take you from the airport directly to the door of wherever you’re staying in town. Many places are located within easy walking distance of the ski area and Main Street, but if you’re a little further away or just want to give your legs a rest, the Breck FreeRide (note the FREE part!) bus system is a great and convenient way to get around during your stay. In addition, with the BreckConnect Gondola and ski-to-town trails (or bike-to-town trails in summer!), the connection between mountain and town is seamless, providing additional and convenient ways to go between the ski area and downtown. If you are driving to visit us though, we recommend checking for the latest driving tips, road conditions and carpool options, and we recommend leaving your car in one place once you're here and utilizing our free in-town transportation options to get around. This small effort can really make a big difference when it comes to traffic and congestion on town roads and the environment.

Tips for I-70 Mountain Travel

  • Avoid peak travel times if possible. If you are heading eastbound on Saturday or Sunday, plan to leave the mountains after 7 p.m. to stay out of traffic. To be safe, check the weekend and holiday Travel Forecast.
  • Winter Driving Preparedness 



Winter Weekend Traffic Patterns


  • Friday: Traffic volumes are moderate from approximately 3:00-7:00 p.m. 
  • Saturday: To beat the traffic, plan to leave the Front Range by 6:00 a.m. Traffic is consistently at its highest between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., and speeds return to normal soon after Noon. 
  • Sunday: Traffic is lighter than Saturday but delays are possible in the 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. timeframe.


  • Saturday: Traffic volume is moderate to heavy between 2:00-5:00 p.m. 
  • Sunday: Traffic starts to build as early as 11:30 a.m. The peak of the traffic occurs between 3:00-6:00 and drops off soon after 8:00 pm. To avoid the jam, stay at the Resort for dinner, or spend Sunday night and head back to work or school Monday morning.  

*Please note: this travel forecast is based on historical traffic data. Weather, road conditions and accidents are impossible to predict and can have significant impacts on I-70 travel.

Colorado’s Traction Law is in effect Sept 1-May 31, regardless of current weather conditions. Learn if your tires meet the Traction Law specifications here.
The Mountain Express Lanes are open on the weekends and holidays to provide a faster and more reliable travel time between Denver and the mountains. Get the Express Toll pass to pay the posted toll rate. Those without a pass will be billed the posted rate plus a service charge. Order the pass at 

Holiday Weekends: When a national holiday falls on a Monday, you can count on Monday afternoon eastbound traffic to mimic a typical Sunday pattern, but with potentially more volume.

Metering: Traffic metering goes into effect during very high-volume times at the Eisenhower Johnson Tunnel on the eastbound approach.  Metering controls the flow of traffic eastbound towards the Eisenhower Tunnel so traffic does not back up in the tunnel, causing potential safety issues.
