High service levels, high use

Washington state Sno-Park users enjoy a high level of service, including cleared parking lots; groomed ski, skate-ski and snowmobile tracks and regularly sanitized bathrooms.

Over the last 12 years, the program has opened new permanent Sno-Parks around the state and created temporary Sno-Parks to meet customer demand.

During the 2020-21 season, Sno-Park use reached an all-time high, particularly along the I-90 corridor. The Winter Recreation Program anticipates a similar level of usage this season.
