Tilly Jane Sno-Park Open to Visitor 01/12/2022 Access Conditions: As of 1/11 Tilly Jane Snow Park is plowed, but still icy. The road to the parking lot is very icy and slippery. The windy road creates shade providing ice and snow places to stay when normally it would melt. The parking lot itself is very icy as well. Current Hazards: The ice and snow patches on the drive up from the resort would be my biggest concern. The parking area is icy too, but flat. 4x4 vehicles, chains, or snow tires are required at this time. Read Mt. Hood Snow Report . For safety, do not block roadway or vehicles! Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed or towed.
