Sno-Park fees to increase this fall

The Washington State Parks Winter Recreation Program announced that the price of Sno-Park permits will increase when they go on sale again Nov. 1. This will be the first increase since 2009.

The price increases reflect the rising costs of Sno-Park operations, which include trail grooming, plowing, clearing lots and roads, bathroom maintenance, fuel and staffing. In addition, the program has had to replace aging equipment, including snowcats. Finally, during the last 12 years, the program opened several new permanent Sno-Parks and created temporary Sno-Parks to meet customer demand. 

The Sno-Park permit fees for the 2021-22 season are:

• Seasonal permit: $50, up from $40

• Annual snowmobile permit: $50, up from $40

• Special Groomed Trail Sticker: $70, up from $40

• Daily Sno Park permit: $25, up from $20

The Discover Pass is not needed for parking at Sno-Parks.
