Get your SNO-Park parking permit, avoid penalties

As winter takes hold in the Sierra Nevada, the USDA Forest Service kindly reminds travelers to secure parking permits before using any of the 18 SNO-Park sites scattered across the region.

Neglecting this requirement may result in fines and tickets.

From Nov. 1 to May 30, every vehicle must prominently display a valid SNO-Park parking permit on the left side of the dashboard, visible from outside. SNO-Parks are identified by brown signs along highways.

Simply visit ohv.parks.ca.gov for more information and online purchases. Or use the SNO-Park Ranger Districts Directory to contact your nearest ranger district. Day and seasonal passes are available.

California State SNO-Parks, located on Forest Service lands, offer designated parking for winter enthusiasts heading out on non-motorized activities — such as cross-country skiing, dog sledding, or just playing in the snow. Some SNO-Parks cater to both motorized and non-motorized activities.

SNO-Parks contribute to safe winter landscapes in the Sierras. Parking on highway interchanges is strictly prohibited. Sales of SNO-Park parking permits help finance plowing services and restroom facilities through the Winter Recreation Fund.

The administration of the SNO-Park program is a collaboration between the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Commission, U.S. Forest Service, California Department of Transportation, California Highway Patrol and local community organizations.
