We have parking lots
at the Wildcat Base
and Albion Base
. If you have beginner skiers in your group or need daycare
or ski school
services we recommend the Albion Base
parking lot. Intermediate skiers and Advanced skiers are encouraged to park in the Wildcat Base
parking lot. All lifts and runs can be accessed from either parking lot. Insider tip - Intermediate & Advanced skiers looking to get to the Sugarloaf lift or even Supreme Lift, use the Wildcat Base
parking lot and ride Collins Lift. It's quicker and more fun.
