Drive Interstate Highway 70 to Copper Mountain Resort. Turn into the main Copper Mountain Resort entrance (Copper Road). Take an immediate left off Copper Road and drive into the Alpine parking lot at the Copper Mountain Transportation Center. Follow signs indicating "Janet's Cabin Parking" or ask the attendant for directions. As of 2007 you'll park at the east (highway) side of the lot where signs indicate "Permit Parking Only."

After parking, display your parking permit (print and cut out the one below) on your dash. For those who use GPS for automobile navigation, UTM for the permit parking area is 401 856 E, 43 73 240 N.

Remember to display parking permits in each vehicle if your is parking more than one. Consider writing a cell phone number on the parking permit (there is cell phone reception at the cabin), in case there is a problem with where you parked.

Once you're parked, take the skier's shuttle to Union Creek, from where you have two options for taking the trail to Janet's Cabin. See the Hutski.com route description for your options.

Know that this parking situation could change at any time. If necessary, inquire at the Transportation Center.
