Snowbird Parking Reservations Available to Book Starting on Nov 9

Opening Day November 30; Snowbird guests can plan with confidence and have plenty of space to ski and ride.

Snowbird, UT (October 30, 2020) — Snowbird announced today further details for its parking reservation system, an important way Snowbird plans to manage the number of people on property in order to ensure the wellbeing of its guests, staff and community. The parking reservation system, part of Snowbird’s Operation Stay Safe, will be in place every day of the season and parking spaces must be reserved before arriving to the resort to ensure availability.

“The parking management system means guests can know that when they plan a trip to Snowbird, they are going to have a great experience – they know they will have a spot to park and plenty of room to spread out on the mountain,” says Dave Fields, president and general manager at Snowbird. “We believe that the majority of our guests will be able to ski on most of the days that they wish. By managing the number of people visiting Snowbird at any given time, staff and guests will be able to appropriately physically distance, stay safe, and have fun.”
Guests may begin booking reservations at 9:00 a.m. on November 9 and can book up to 7 advance days throughout the season. Once the season begins, guests will also be able to book an unlimited amount of days in the rolling 7-day window. As advance days are used, guests will be able to book additional advance days. Advance booking is recommended and same day reservations can be made, if available, at

The new parking reservation system, alongside Snowbird’s requirement for guests to pre-book passes and experiences, are part of Operation Stay Safe so that we may safely get back to skiing and riding. The 2020/21 Snowbird plan follows the National Ski Areas Association’s Ski Well, Be Well best practices and includes:

  • The requirement for staff and guests to wear facial coverings when indoors, except when seated to eat or drink, and outdoors when 6 feet of physical distance cannot be maintained.
  • New protocols for lift queueing and riding to ensure appropriate physical distance.
  • Encouragement for guests to be prepared to warm and dine out of their vehicles, given reduced capacity limits in lodges and more limited dining and beverage options at resort venues.
  • A continued commitment to uphold the highest standards of sanitization to keep our staff and guests safe.

All available parking inventory from opening day, November 30, through December 24, and a portion of inventory for the duration of the season, will be available for booking at 9:00 a.m. on November 9 via To ensure as many people can ski and ride as possible and remain safe, additional parking inventory will be released and announced on a limited, rolling basis and reflect necessary precautions surrounding the pandemic, user patterns, open terrain and lifts, and weather and conditions. A parking reservation system ensures the most equal access to ski and ride at Snowbird, across all passholder groups and types of resort visitors. Parking reservation terms and conditions are available here.

Book your Snowbird experience with confidence knowing you will be covered by the Passholder Promise, which offers in season 2020/21 COVID-19 coverage and the option for any guest with an unused 2020/21 pass to request and obtain a full refund for any reason before December 1.
