Crystal A lot parking pass
« on: 11/22/19, 06:05 PM »

Has anyone received their parking pass for Crystal's pay lot? It seems like the business processes in place aren't allowing Guest Services to send them out in a timely manner.

Variables include:
- bump in A lot capacity (I heard that existing capacity = 500)
- new logo for the windshield sticker (Thanks Marketing, but I liked the "C" )
- understaffed
- construction of a new G lot (may or may not relevant)

What does a parking pass cost this year? Heard rumors of 1000$. And where is the rumored G Lot?

Apologies for my delay in responding.

After a ~15 year wait, Crystal collected $1114.61 and issued 1 decal and 1 rear view mirror hanging pass. There was no agreement that guaranteed my space, so the rumors if carpoolers getting into upper A lot might be true.

My ski pass = 656.14
# days to date = 1
# skiers in my car = 2
# runs = 12
# turns per run =~50?
It pains me to calculate my fun factor. Lithium skins?

G lot is lookers right as you drive up, just past the diesel-backup-station-that-leaked

I apologize too,  for the late response. Work and my 9 month old are keeping me quite busy. That is exactly correct on what CascadeSkier said. Wish they would not have eliminated one of the decals though. I alternated vehicles with my wife quite often depending on conditions. I had no idea on the "G" lot. Thanks for the info!!!

The one decal they provide is like the ones you get at an oil change and therefore easily transferable to your other car and back.

I'd have preferred two decals but at least they thought about it.

I hadn't put it in either of my vehicles yet, so I didn't realize they changed the decals from the previous years. That's good to know. Thank you for the info!!!

So the rumors are true about A Lot.  Crystal has announced "new transportation initiatives".

https://www.crystalmountainresort.com/the-mountain/crystal-blog/transportation-initiatives?fbclid=IwAR19-z0xexVvzp1LT6lMXt8kl0T8cj_G2ko9yxuzKNaXjeL9aHw3i7dJnNo

In addition to shuttles out of Enumclaw and Seattle, here are the changes for A Lot:

"This year, a total of 250 spots will be reserved in Parking Lot A, the closest and most convenient parking at the resort. Vehicles of four persons or more will be given priority access to these spots on a first arrival basis until the allotted spots are full. This new carpooling initiative will be in effect seven days a week starting December 21st."

So I made an inquiry about the pecking order for A Lot.

Q: "Is this correct with respect to A lot spaces closest to the ticket windows: handicap then premium A reserved pass holders then 4 person carpoolers?"

A: "Lot A will be dedicated to handicap spaces, paid preferred parking and then the Crystal Carpool program."

So I take this to mean that >=4 carpoolers will go into lower Lot A, handicap vehicles get the spaces closet to the ticket windows and folks with a paid reserved parking pass go in the middle. Time will tell if $ or carpools get the close spots.

Let the howling begin.
