BRECKENRIDGE Looking to park for free at the base of Breckenridge’s new gondola? You’ve got four more days. Breckenridge Ski Resort won’t start charging for parking in the Miners and Tailings lots until Monday, when spots will go for $10 a day because of their proximity to the new BreckConnect Gondola, which started running on Sunday.”We thought it be a good way to ease the transition and give our guests a little holiday thank you,” resort spokesperson Nicky DeFord said.The resort will run a shuttle from the free parking lots to the gondola, including the Goldrush lot across Park Ave. from the gondola, the Postal lot next to the Miners lot and the Airport Road lot, DeFord said.Also, the resort’s Green Route, which shuttled people from the resort’s parking lots to Peak 8 and Peak 9 will no longer run up to Peak 8 in lieu of the new gondola, DeFord said. The route will continue to service Peak 9. The Town of Breckenridge will be still operating the Blue/Black route which services Peak 8. The resort continues to offer season parking passes, ranging from $99 to $350 depending on where and in which lots you plan to park. For more information, call (970) 453-5000, or visit
