WINTERSPORTS – Sno-Park permits will be required on vehicles parking at Mount Spokane State Park trailheads starting with the first significant snowfalls that require plowing, said Jerry Johnson, park ranger.

Until then, Washington Discover Passes will suffice, he said. Usually significant snowfall occurs by Thanksgiving, he said. Either way, Sno-Park passes definitely would replace Discover Passes by Dec. 1.

Sno-Park Passes go on sale statewide on Nov. 1. Cost is $40 a season per vehicle. People parking at plowed areas with trail grooming, such as at the Selkirk Lodge at the cross-country ski park, must add a $40 grooming sticker to their Sno-Park Pass.

The pass is not required at the downhill ski area parking lots.
