Consideration of Changes To the Agenda
The Board meeting opened up with each attendee giving a quick review of their history with Arrowhead.
Skier Parking Lot
Beth Howard and Tim Baker of Vail Resorts came to the meeting to review charging parking fees at the skier parking lot. Beth reviewed the paid parking lot history throughout all of the Beaver Creek parking lots. Beth reported that charging in the Bear and Elk lots this last season was due to the issue with non-skiers using the lots and requiring overflow to be rerouted elsewhere. It was reported that Vail Resorts must pay every time there is parking overflow sent to the Rodeo lot. Beth discussed other options that Vail Resorts came too while discussing charging fees at the Bear and Elk Lot to elevate some of the non-skier traffic in the lot. Beth reviewed parking statistics that were collected at the Arrowhead skier parking lot and why Vail did not think it was necessary to charge at the lot.
At this time Vail Resorts does not want to allow Arrowhead to charge for parking in the skier parking lot. Vail Resorts has said that they will monitor the lot usage and continue to provide additional red jackets to assist with the traffic in the lot. Vail Resorts iterated no homeowner has been turned away from the lot on any day and they intend to keep it this way in the next ski season.
The Board expressed disappointment and felt that the Vail Resort Parking Policy was not consistent across all lots and unfair to Arrowhead owners.
