At a Glance

Current Conditions: McKenzie River Ranger District: Sno-Park is open November 1, 2018 – April 30, 2019. A Sno-Park permit is required. Amount of Snow: 6'6" - 7'6" The snow pack at Santiam Sno-Park is currently described as a few feet of condensed snow at the base with less consolidation towards the surface (you can still post hole to a decent depth) and a few inches of powder on top. A sun crust is expected to form over the next week. The wind continues to push things around. Current Hazards: Watch out for compacted and/or sun impacted snow conditions. These can increase speed of a sled to very dangerous levels. Most sleds and all tubes are non-directional devices, so be very careful in choosing a lane to sled down. DO NOT BUILD JUMPS AT THE SANTAIM SNO-PLAY AREA!
