Page Mountain Sno-Park

  

The Page Mountain Sno Park is a picturesque setting to enjoy the fun of winter! Located in the mountains above Cave Junction, OR and the Illinois Valley, this is a great setting to have a winter outing with friends and family!

Heads up: Use caution on the slopes when the snow is not fresh and there are a lot of visitors.  The snow can freeze and crust quickly at this elevation, creating unsafe sledding conditions or excessive speeds.

Fees You must have a valid Sno–Park permit displayed near the lower left corner of the windshield of your vehicle if you park in a designated winter recreation parking area (Sno–Park) between November 1 and April 30. Oregon’s Sno–Park Program is funded entirely by the sale of Sno– Park permits. The program provides funds for snow removal in Sno–Parks and enforcement of the permit requirement. Permits are sold at all DMV offices and by permit sales agents at various resorts, sporting goods stores and other retail outlets. Sales agents may charge an additional service fee for each permit they sell. There are three types of permits:
  • An annual permit ($25.00/year)
  • A 3-day permit ($9.00/year)
  • A one-time, daily permit ($4.00/day)
Restrictions: CHAIN AND TRACTION TIRE REQUIREMENTS When you travel in winter conditions, you must carry chains or traction tires in or on your vehicle, and must use them, when required by the signs posted. Under some conditions, four-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles may be exempt from the requirements to use chains. For more information on Oregon’s chain and traction tire requirements, go to Oregon Department of Transportation travel web page, Tripcheck. WINTER DRIVING CHECKLIST Traveling in Oregon’s snow country can be hazardous, especially if you are caught in a severe storm. The following checklist will help you be prepared in case you must travel during heavy snow.
  • Is there sufficient anti–freeze in your radiator?
