Gondola One in Vail, which accesses Mid-Vail, is open for spectators to ride to the top for FREE from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. Failure to load the gondola by 8:00am will make it so you will not be able to access Mid-Vail without paying a daily scenic ride ticket for $28. Dogs or other pets are not permitted to load the Gondola. Post-race, the gondola will be free for racers & spectators to download to Vail Village.
Racers should park in the Vail Village or Lionshead Parking Structures where parking is free for the summer.
