We are underway with the expansion of our upper parking lot…aka the Paradise Lot. We plan to add approximately 200 new spots up there while still maintaining skier access to the Ramble On ski trail. The lot will grow in size in all directions and the access road from the main lot that loops to the south of the Paradise Lot will still be utilized for car ingress and egress.

The views of the mountain will be even more open with the clearing of trees around the western perimeter of the lot. So, it should still be the best spot on the hill for a mid-day lunch or an après ski session. We have been feeling the parking pinch on most weekends and holidays over the last few years. Hopefully this addition along with the return of carpooling and shuttles next year will greatly assist with these parking challenges.
