PARKING EXPANSION APPROVAL: On February 11, Boulder County Commissioners voted unanimously to conditionally approve a plan that includes parking expansion at Eldora. Conditions include Eldora’s continued commitment to incentivizing alternative transportation and carpooling as well as the imposition of a $10 parking fee for single-occupancy vehicles (SOVs) on “peak days” (weekends and holidays) and midweek snow-event days (when Eldora receives 10 or more inches within 24 hours). Eldora will not charge vehicles with two or more riders at any time, nor will it charge any vehicle on non-holiday weekdays that do not see 10+ inches of snow.
“The Commissioners’ approval is a big win for the greater Eldora community,” says Brent Tregaskis, Eldora’s president and general manager. “Eldora’s goals are to provide better access to the mountain, mitigate congestion on local roads, reduce vehicle emissions, incentivize carpooling, and encourage the use of alternative transportation options like RTD’s NB bus route from Boulder to Eldora.”
Eldora has taken a number of steps to tackle traffic and emissions in Boulder County on days when the resort sees significant demand. Those steps, which Eldora will continue in the 2020/21 season, include giving away approximately $2000 worth of RTD bus tickets for free every weekend; providing free round-trip shuttles every weekend from the Boulder County Justice Center parking lot at 6th & Canyon in Boulder; negotiating the use of the Boulder County Justice Center parking lot on weekends for carpooling and shuttle-riding guests; reserving the first 200 parking spots, closest to Alpenglow chairlift, for high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) parking; and providing concerted and regular communications to inform guests about traffic and parking updates and to appeal to the community to take action to reduce low-occupancy vehicle (LOV) arrivals.
No timeline has been set for the parking expansion, which may be phased in over multiple years. Single-occupancy vehicle parking fees on peak days and midweek snow-event days are scheduled to begin at the start of Eldora’s 2020/21 winter season.
