Winter Parking NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-October 27, 2022-In a town that measures its snow in feet, not inches, and often receives snow early in the season, November signals the start of seasonal parking requirements so plow crews can maintain streets, parking lots and alleyways during the winter.

“Keeping our streets clear and open for travel is our top priority in our community, where snow is a mainstay,” commented Streets Superintendent David Van Winkle. “We’re asking for everyone’s help in making that a bit easier by adhering to the city’s winter parking requirements which go into effect Tuesday.” 

Parking is compounded by snow, which accumulates fast in a mountain town like Steamboat Springs. To expedite snow removal efforts, winter parking is prohibited on city streets and shoulders during the following hours:


Restricted Hours – No Overnight

Lincoln Avenue

Stockbridge Transit Center

Ski Time Square

Anglers Drive area & south to city limits:

All Other Areas:

            3:00 am - 6:00 am

            2:30 am - 6:00 am

            3:00 am - 6:00 am

            Midnight - 8:00 am

            2:00 am - 8:00 am

 Winter parking restrictions run from November 1 through April 30. Vehicles may be ticketed if left on city right-of-way within the restricted hours and/or towed during snowplow operations. Should you receive a parking citation, tickets can be paid online

Streets are prioritized according to public safety requirements and traffic volumes, with a focus on access routes for emergency vehicles, transit, and commercial routes, before moving into residential areas. The city maintains 160 lane miles of streets, 6 miles of alleys, 37 parking lots, 1,100 fire hydrants and 105 cul-de-sacs, utilizing 5 graders, 5 sand trucks with roughly 2,800 tons of scoria annually.
