Village Parking Drop off Zone

Greetings mountain goers. This is just a friendly reminder to confirm that the new 10 minute drop off zone which was established at the beginning of the season is a 10 minute parking zone. Please use this space to drop off and pickup gear when arriving and departing the mountain. Below is an example of incorrect application of the parking zone.

To access this drop off point turn right at the base of the car park loop and proceed to just before the bollards on the left. The Green zone in the image below depicts this drop off point. The 10 minute time-frame should allow most to be able to drop-off gear and passengers before locating a long-term parking spot.
Please note that the red area depicted below is for Authorised users only. This includes the Snow Sports Shuffle Buses, Commercial Operators, PWS vehicles and where space is available Ski Patrollers. This is due to the significant increase in foot traffic with the changes to the top of the car park and flow between the Alpine Kiosk, Public Shelter and Public Toilets.
