Non-motorized recreation

Learn about activities and services in our Sno-Parks.

The Winter Recreation program provides Sno-Parks, which provide cleared parking areas near groomed and backcountry trails. We offer two types of Sno-Parks, snowmobiles trails and non-motorized trails. Some Sno-Parks offer both types of trails.

Some non-motorized Sno-Parks have groomed trails, and some have backcountry trails. Groomed trails include a tracked trail and sometimes a skating lane.  Nonmotorized trails offer a variety of activities including cross-country skiing, play areas, skijoring, snowshoeing and inner-tubing.


Keep in mind that Sno-Park plowing cannot be maintained without highway plowing. For this reason, under certain weather conditions, some Sno-Parks may not be cleared for vehicle parking until nearby highways have been cleared. It is against the law to park on highway interchanges.
