White River West Sno-Park
White River Sno-Park is a popular winter destination on the Forest, especially on weekends and after fresh snow! Due to the sno-park's stunning view of Mt. Hood and its proximity to Portland, this area is a family favorite.
Sno-park provides access to ungroomed backcountry ski trails.
Parking at White River often fills quickly, slowing traffic in the area. Use caution. If the lot is full, please do not stop to wait or park along the highway or along entryways. This is unsafe and illegal. Parking has space for 200 vehicles. Trailer parking available.
Visitors asked to use caution when sledding on a low snowpack year; be aware of exposed rocks and other obstacles. When choosing an area to sled, make sure you are well away from the river.
