Oregon’s Sno-Park season is back.
The program helps provide parking at about 100 winter recreation parking areas (Sno-Parks) across the state. Sno-Parks are in most of Oregon’s mountain passes and in most ski, snowmobile, and snow play areas. A list of areas designated as Sno-Parks is available at www.tripcheck.com under “Travel Center”.
If you park in a Sno-Park from November 1 to April 30, you need a valid Sno-Park permit displayed in the windshield of your vehicle.
There are three types of permits: a $20 seasonal permit, a $7 three-day permit good for three consecutive days, and a $3 daily permit. Permits are sold at all DMV offices and by permit vendors at winter resorts, sporting goods stores, and other retail outlets. Permit vendors may charge an additional service fee.
A list of permit vendors is available at www.tripcheck.com under “Travel Center”. To become a Sno-Park permit vendor contact DMV, Vehicle Mail at 503-945-7949.
The seasonal permit is also available by mail from DMV. Send a written request with your return address, phone number, and a check or money order to DMV, Vehicle Mail No. 1, 1905 Lana Avenue, Salem Oregon 97314.
