Afton Alps Parking

There are various areas to park at Afton Alps and it really depends on where you want to launch from. Up top there is the Highlands and Alpine which is great easy access to the slopes for passholders! Down at the base there is the Alps, LZ and Meadows area. - Propane heaters and grills are not allowed on premise. 



The Highlands is the first chalet and parking area you will see on your right after entering the resort and taking your first left at the State Park entrance. Here you can park, pick-up your ticket, grab lunch or a drink and hit the slopes with ease. The only thing you can't do is get rental equipment.


You may enter the Highlands area and take the first left to enter the Alpine area. Guests can hit the slopes from here and when open, there are restrooms, tables/seating and our ski patrol headquarters. On select weekends there is ticket sales, passes, and rentals.



After passing the Highlands and Alpine, take a left at the entrance gate where you'll see an orange snow cat to your right. Then proceed slowly to the bottom of the hill. The first parking area is at the bottom of our race hills and near the Alps Village area. In the village, you will find a cafeteria, Paul's Pub, Office, Rental, Retail and at the far end, Guest Services.

If you drive past the first Alps parking area, and go up and over you will come to the other Alps parking area. This is the closest to our main Guest Services location, it is the silver building on the corner. Here you can purchase or pick-up your ticket, pass, hear about daily happenings and events or plan your next trip out West. Parking here you are the nearest to the Bunny Hill (Nancy's Nursery), Rentals, Office and Guest Services (tickets/passes/information).


Continuing through the middle Alps parking lot and heading further South you will come to the LZ. This parking area is located in the Landing Zone by the terrain park. Here you will find a fire pit, restrooms, and take out food and beverages on the weekends. There is no ticket pick-up, rental or ski school located in this area.


Passing the LZ and heading to the farthest end of the resort you will arrive in the Meadows parking lot. Guest Services, Ski School and Rental is located in this area along with food & beverage served at this outlet.
