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, 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 GoI70.com for the latest winter 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.
