TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — Teton Village Association is unveiling a new parking system, FlashParking, for the 2021-2022 winter season.

Fear not, carpoolers with three or more people will still be granted free parking in the Ranch Lot. Carpoolers will need to be validated by an attendant at the booth upon entry, like in years past. Free parking after 1 p.m. in the Ranch Lot will continue to be honored.  There will still be attendants directing cars into parking spaces.

The new system which will be implemented at the Ranch Lot, Village Lot, Cody Lot and Crystal Springs Lot will prompt users to pull a ticket or scan their parking season pass. Payment is required prior to exiting the lots.

There are a number of walk-up kiosks at each lot as well as at the base of the Tram. The kiosks accept Google pay, Apple pay, and credit cards. There is a kiosk in the Ranch Lot that will accept cash. Payment via an app will also be available.

FlashParking is used at the Aspen Airport, proving to be capable in cold-weather environments, explained Teton Village Association Executive Director Melissa Turley.

Paid parking in Teton Village begins on Nov. 27 and lasts through April 10, 2022.

Ranch lot parking costs $15. The Village, Crystal Springs, and Cody Lot are all $30. During peak season, from Dec. 26 through Jan. 2 and weekends until March 13, 2022, parking rates increase. Ranch lot parking will be $20 and the Village, Cody and Crystal Springs Lots increase to $40.
