Parking, transportation tips for GoPro Mountain Games
VAIL — Participants and spectators attending the GoPro Mountain Games 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. Check http://www.eaglecounty.us or vailgov.com for local bus schedules.
Vail Transit will be running express bus service on the South Frontage Road with stops at the Lionshead Transit Center, Vail Transportation Center and Ford Park on Thursday through Sunday to help alleviate congestion on the in-town village-to-village route. Also, effective through Sunday, 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. 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.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
