The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission announced that Sno-Park permits will be available for purchase online and through various vendors statewide beginning midnight Wednesday, Nov. 1.
Sno-Park permits allow visitors to park in specially cleared, designated parking lots with access to areas for cross-country skiing, skijoring, snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowshoeing, tubing and more through-out the state.
Online and in-person purchase of the Sno-Park permit is available Nov. 1 through April 30. Revenue from Sno-Park permit sales is entirely dedicated to the Winter Recreation Program and helps pay for trail grooming, snow removal from parking lots and roads, on-site sanitation, education and enforcement.
There are many different permits required for different circumstances including Daily Sno-Park Permit, Seasonal Non-motorized Sno-Park Permit, Special Groomed Sticker, and Seasonal Snowmobile Sno-Park Permit
