Snooze on first chair

Parking at Purgatory Resort is only bad during peak times. Those tend to be holidays, weekend mornings, powder days and the trifecta – when all three happen on the same day. This might be more of an issue of everyone showing up at the same time than singles in one car.

My guess is that most singles are season pass holders who tend to avoid Purg during peak hours (but are inevitably the culprits on powder days).

It makes me wonder how much of an impact the lack of a half-day ski pass has on parking. If you spend $140 on a day pass, you’re showing up at 9 a.m. even if you only end up skiing for a few hours.

Maybe the answer to the problem is figuring out how to incentivize showing up later.
