Parking at Brighton

UPDATED PARKING POLICIES – As we cannot expand the size of our parking lot, we are working hard to bring our guests and loyal passholders an improved canyon & parking experience this season. Explore our new policies below.

24/25 Winter Parking

RESERVATION REQUIREMENTS: All vehicles must have a reservation on all Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays prior to 12pm. Parking reservations are required:

  • All Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays
  • Daily, December 21 through January 5
  • Monday, January 20
  • Monday, February 17

DAILY LOT CLOSURES: The parking lot is closed every day, 12am - 7am, for snow clearing/grooming. This work is crucial to maintaining a maximum number of spaces throughout the season.

COMPLIMENTARY PASSHOLDER PARKING: Qualifying Brighton Passholders can hold up to two free parking reservations at a time. Vouchers become reusable once your current reservation day has passed. Additional reservations can still be made (max 5 reservations per license plate/account). Passholder parking codes are sent via email prior to the start of the 24/25 season. 

QUALIFYING PASSHOLDERS: Passholder parking perks apply to all Unlimited, Base & Midweek Passholders ages 18+. Passholders between the ages of 16 and 18 will need to provide proof of a valid driver’s license to obtain a parking code for the 24/25 season.
