Parking in Keystone Resort Colorado

Keystone is one of the few resorts in Colorado that still offers free daytime skier parking options. Keystone also encourages carpooling and saves front row parking options for guests with 4 or more people in their vehicle.

Every vacation rental property on our rental program includes at least one complimentary parking space. Please note that overnight overflow parking options have recently changed.


Summer parking is free this summer at Keystone, during the day and overnight as well  This includes River Run Gondola lot, Mountain House West lot, and Mountain House East lot.

Please pay attention to posted signs - multiple smaller lots will be closed at varying times throughout the summer due to construction, events, etc. 

Approval for oversized parking is needed for all oversized vehicles/trailers. Approval can be provided by Keystone Condo Registration by calling (970) 496-4000, option #4; THERE ARE ONLY 6 SPOTS. Availability is not guaranteed.

Rules regarding parking at your Vacation Rental vary per property and more information can be found on each property listing.


Free Day Parking Options

Free day skier parking is available in both the River Run Gondola (formerly Montezuma) and North Shuttle ( formerly Tenderfoot) lots. From the River Run Gondola Lot, it is a short walk through River Run Village to the River Run Gondola and base area. Guests are encouraged to carpool and vehicles with families or 4 or more passengers will be given priority parking up in the front of the lot. A limited number of complementary sleds are available to help families with young children haul their gear (and their kids!) to the lifts. To obtain a sled, please visit Guest Services in the Mountain Guest Services building near the Gondola base. If you decide to park in the North Shuttle lot (which is located on the north side of US Hwy 6) a shuttle service is available to transport you to both the River Run and Mountain House base areas. All of these lots are outdoor, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the fine weather in Keystone!

River Run Village Base Area Paid Parking Options

The Gold Bug Parking Lot just past Norski Sports is open for both overnight and day use parking and is now the closest paid parking lot to the River Run gondola. Cost is $40 for day parking and $25 for overnight parking (additional/separate from day parking). Pay at the kiosk or through the provided QR codes. The ‘Hunki Dori’ lot near the gondola will not be open this season as construction begins on the new Kindred Resort at Keystone.

Mountain House Base Area Paid Parking Options

The “A & B” lots (previously known as Marmot & Slopeside) are open for both overnight and day use parking. Cost is $25 for day parking and $25 for overnight (additional/separate from day parking). Pay at the kiosk or through the provided QR codes.

The “D & E” lots (previously known as Porcupine & Pika) are open for both overnight and day use parking. Both of these lots will be free during the day and $25 for overnight parking. There is a shuttle that runs from these lots, please see the ‘shuttle’ page for current scheduling. Important to note: there are no payment kiosks in these two lots, so in order to pay for your overnight parking, you will need to utilize the QR codes posted in the lots.

Oversize Vehicle Parking Options
Oversize vehicles like RV’s and trailers do have an option for free overnight parking. There are 7 first-come, first-serve spots located at the North Shuttle lot. To utilize these spaces, guests must go to the Keystone condo check in office and let them know that they are staying in Keystone to receive a special permit.

Where do I park if I am ice skating in Keystone?

Located directly across the highway from the Keystone Lodge, the Keystone Lodge Parking Lot may be used while you visit Lakeside Village and the Keystone Ice Skating Rink. Do not dodge cars on Highway 6, when you park over here use the underground tunnel to get over to Lakeside Village so you don’t have to call your vacation over early. You can drop folks off over at Lakeside Village by the Keystone Lodge Hotel before you park and remember that the the Tenderfoot parking lot is for the ice skating rink and it is free.

Where do I park in Keystone when I am staying in Keystone?

Every vacation rental property on our rental program includes at least one complimentary parking space. When it comes to parking near your Keystone lodging, you are required to have your SummitCove Parking permit that you receive with your confirmation in order to park. You will receive specific instructions on where you are supposed to park in your lodging confirmation that you receive via email after you make your reservation. Most of Keystone’s properties offer garage or covered parking, though a few have only outdoor parking. Nearly all of the properties in River Run Village have covered or garage parking and quite a few of them are heated. The other areas in Keystone feature a mixture of indoor and outdoor parking and it really depends on the property whether which one it has. The homeowners association rules in Keystone typically limit the parking in the underground garages to one vehicle per condo.

Keystone’s free shuttle system

Keystone Resort does offer a complimentary resort shuttle that travels around most of the resort. You can check shuttle times or arrange for a free shuttle by calling Keystone transportation at 970-496-4200. View our shuttle information page here.
