Vehicles with four or more occupants can also access the Lower Gad Valley Preferred Parking Lot at a discounted rate.

New for the 23/24 season, Snowbird is now offering the Canyon Carpool Club. This new program rewards guests that carpool, ultimately limited congestion up the canyon. On peak traffic days, Snowbird will be offering surprise giveaways to carpoolers. Prizes include Fast Track upgrades, gas gift cards, swag, and hot breakfasts. 

Paid reservations can be made in advance online for the self- or valet parking lots. Full refunds can be offered up to 7am on the day of the reservation. For missed reservations, there will be no refund issued.

Day-of self parking is available for purchase in the Lower Gad Valley lot, however these spots are also first-come, first-serve.

Snowbird also offers a valet option, with or without a reservation. Guests may book a reservation in advance, or purchase the day-of on a first-come, first-serve basis.

As of this update, Preferred Parking Passes are sold out for the 23/24 season.
