Participants and spectators attending the GoPro Mountain Games June 9-12 are advised to leave their cars at home and take the bus or ride their bikes to Vail, if possible, as parking will be at full capacity.
Vail Transit will be running express bus service on the South Frontage Road during the GoPro Mountain Games, with stops at the Lionshead Transit Center, Vail Transportation Center and Ford Park Thursday though Sunday to help alleviate congestion on the in-town Village to Village route.
Also, effective Wednesday through Sunday during the GoPro Mountain Games, the in-town bus route will switch to the “Farmers’ Market” in-town loop; there will be no stops at the Covered Bridge, Solaris or Vail Road.
GoPro Mountain Games guests will be directed to the top of the Vail Transportation Center to load and unload the in-town bus, which includes extended service to Ford Park via Vail Valley Drive from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The top decks of the Vail Village and Lionshead structures are reserved for vehicles with roof racks carrying bikes and kayaks. The Ford Park and soccer field surface lots also will be used to park cars exceeding the parking structure height restrictions.
Overflow parking on the South Frontage Road will be allowed once both parking structures are full. Parking is free in the town lots.
