Snow Bunny Sledding Area/Sno-Park
Snow Bunny Sledding Area/Sno-Park is operated by Timberline Summit Pass (formerly known as Summit Ski Area), which officially became part of the Timberline Ski Area in 2021.
The Snow Bunny snow play area is a favorite family recreation spot on the Forest. This beginner-friendly area is close to Portland and is free to use, although there is a small Sno-Park parking fee from Nov. 1 - Apr. 30. There are several hills for sledding and tubing. Easier, smaller hills are closer to the parking lot and more difficult, larger hills are towards the back of the sno-park. Visitors should bring their own personal sledding devices such as toboggans, sleds, and tubes. There are no sled rentals at Snow Bunny.
Trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing can be accessed from this point. Space for 100 cars. Trailer parking available.
NOTE: Visitors should not block roadway or other vehicles. This is for everyone's safety. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed or towed.
