The pandemic has wreaked havoc in so many areas of life this year. We would like to try and make navigating reservations for Summit County skiing as easy as possible by putting all the rules and links in one easy place.
Vail Resorts Reservations for Skiing
Vail Resorts owns four of our seven area resorts; Breck, Keystone, Vail & Beaver Creek. You can make skiing reservations for any or all in one location. Have your Epic account info handy as you have to log in to make reservations. Thankfully, you can reserve days for others in your household within your account. If the whole family is skiing, you don’t have to register everybody one at a time.
You can make up to 7 reservations for future dates plus as many as you like for the next 7 days, as long as they are available. New days open up on Wednesdays so if the day you want isn’t available now, check back on Wednesday.

Copper Mountain Skiing Reservations
Copper Mountain requires parking reservations not skiing reservations. Pack the whole family in the car and one reservation gets it done. Have your license plate number handy as you’ll need that to make your reservation. You can reserve seven advance days plus seven more in the upcoming week for a total of 14 days. If your day is not available, check again on Monday. Additional parking spaces may be made available on Mondays throughout the season. When you reserve your spot, you can pick the lot you’d like to park in. The Alpine lot is free and requires a shuttle ride to the lifts. Closer lots are available for a fee.

Reservations for Arapahoe Basin
No reservations are required for A-Basin pass holders. This does not include Ikon Pass holders. The Ikon Passholders receive 5 or 7 ski days at Arapahoe Basin during the ski season however they must still make skiing reservations.
Loveland Ski Area – No Reservations!
Loveland doesn’t require reservations! Need to hit the mountain on a spur of the mountain powder day? Loveland is your mountain! If you don’t have a pass, you’ll need to buy a lift ticket in advance. There’s no ticket sales at the mountain this year.
No matter where you make your reservations for Summit County skiing, there likely won’t be any indoor food service available. If you plan to make a day of it, bring food and drinks and plan to eat outside or in your car. Restrooms are still available indoors, thank goodness! You’ll have to wear a mask pretty much the entire time you are there so you may want a lightweight and heavyweight gaiter so even if you are working hard, you can cover your face.
