Once you arrive at A-Basin, there are four parking lots: the Early Riser parking lot is located directly adjacent to the mountain between the Black Mountain Express and Pallavicini lifts; the High-Noon parking lot is located a few hundred yards east (up towards Loveland Pass) of the Base Area; the Last Chance parking lot is further still up Loveland Pass; and the Administration Lot (the smallest) is located directly outside the Guest Services Building and the Ticket/Season Pass Office adjacent to the base area.

All parking at A-Basin is free with the exception of the Administration Lot. There is usually a charge to park in this lot on weekends and holidays.

Disabled Parking

Disabled parking is available in both the Administration and the Early Riser parking lots.

2008 Parking Expansion

Arapahoe Basin added a $1.2 million parking expansion and reconfiguration in 2008. Highlights include:

  • New pedestrian tunnel between the High Noon parking lot and the base area so guests will not need to walk across Highway 6 to get to the ski area.
  • 300 new parking spaces have been added in the upper lots.
  • High Noon & Last Chance reconfiguration - The entrance to the upper parking lots will be located 1/4 mile above the A-Frame on Highway 6 just above the old entrance. Don't be confused, the old entrance is now the new exit for the High Noon lot.
  • New shuttle bus system - A-Basin has two new shuttle buses that take guests from the upper parking lots to the base area.
