WINTERSPORTS -- A new Washington Sno-Park will give snowmobilers access to more than 100 miels of groomed trails in Kittitas County this season.
An open house and chili feed to present information about the first phase of the development is set for Nov. 1, 11:30 a.m. at the All Seasons Drive (formerly FS Road #4510) off Woods and Steele Road, approximately six miles southwest of Cle Elum.
The event is sponsored by Washington State Parks, county parks and the Washington State Snowmobile Association.
Evergreen Sno-Park, at 2,200 feet elevation, gives snowmobilers access to more than 100 miles of groomed trails on the Taneum-Manastash trail system.
The new Sno-Park replaces the old Woods and Steele Staging Area and can accommodate up to 25 vehicles with trailers. Once completed, the two-acre site will be expanded to five acres.
