Subaru Preferred Parking
Drive a Subaru? We would like to put you front and center to show off your ride. Copper and Subaru are offering preferred parking in select parking lots. That’s right, in the Beeler Lot and Chapel Lot the early-bird (with a Subaru) gets the worm, or better yet, complimentary parking for the day. Space is limited with (8) designated spots in Beeler and (4) in Chapel. While the Alpine Lot is always complementary, you won’t have to carry that equipment far when you park your Subaru in one of the (12) designated spots right next to the shuttle pick-up. All Subaru parking is first come, first served.
