I have only been to Vail 3 times and still knew where to park for free. You can see where everyone parks near City Market when you pass Vail on the way to Beaver Creek. I prefer Beaver Creek over Vail. Last season I only used 2 of my days off my Epic Local Pass. The previous season I used all of them at Beaver Creek. I would see where everyone parks at Vail when I would pass through there. It's pretty obvious. Last season I parked there with no issues and I was not there early.
