Sno-Park permits now required
As winter sets in, it's time to prepare for favorite winter activities. Oregon's Sno-Park program helps by providing parking at about 100 winter recreation areas, or Sno-Parks, across the state.
There are Sno-Parks throughout Oregon's mountain passes and in most ski, snowmobile, and snow play areas. These areas are posted with signs identifying them as Winter Recreation Areas. Anyone who parks in a Sno-Park from Nov. 15-April 30 needs a valid permit displayed on the windshield of their vehicle.
Seasonal permits cost $15, three-day permits are $7 and a daily permit is $3. They are available at DMV offices and from winter resorts, sporting goods stores, and other retail outlets. Agents are allowed to charge an additional service fee for the permits they sell.
