Vail parking is free despite gates

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado ” Parking is free in Vail, Colorado’s parking garages but the gates at the entrances and exits will continue to operate to count traffic.

The gates , which are programmed to open automatically when a vehicle approaches, had been left open in the past when parking is free. Parking will be free until mid-November.

Vail also will cap the number of early morning spaces in the Vail Village garage while additional spaces will open up later in the morning for visitors and later-arriving employees. This program was initiated last summer following complaints that parking spaces were being filled early in the morning.
