Due to changes in Washington’s Sno-Park program, Oregon’s Sno-Park permits will no longer be honored in Washington. As a result, Oregon will not be able to honor Washington’s Sno-Park permits.
You must have a valid Sno*Park permit displayed in the windshield of your vehicle if you park in designated winter recreation parking areas (Sno*Parks) between November 1 and April 30. Each of these areas are posted with signs idenifying them as a Winter Recreation Area. You will find Sno*Parks in all mountain passes of the state as well as most recognized ski, snowmobile, and snow play areas.
Permits are sold at all DMV offices and by permit agents in resorts, sporting goods stores and other retail outlets. Agents are allowed to charge a service fee for each permit they sell.
The cost of the annual permit provides a discount to frequent Sno*Park users over the three day and daily permits. A recent survey of Sno*Park users indicated that an annual permit is used more than 13 times per winter. Parking in an Oregon Sno*Park without a permit may result in a $30.00 fine, so be sure to obtain a permit and display it on your vehicle.
