A parking fee will only be charged on day skier lots 1, 2 and 3, and it won’t be levied until after the 2010 Olympics. All other parking lots will remain free.

The municipality has scheduled an open house at the Whistler Public Library on Wednesday, July 23 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. to provide more information on plans for the day skier lots.
