A SNO-Park permit is required for each vehicle parked at a SNO-Park site from November 1 through May 30 of each year. Permits are sold as Day Permits or Seasonal Permits. Day permits are sold for $15.00 and are valid for one single day. Season permits are sold for $40.00 and are valid for the entire SNO-Park season from November 1 through May 30.
Snow-cleared parking lots cannot be guaranteed on a daily basis because of weather conditions and snow plowing priorities.
The SNO-Park permit must be displayed on the left side of the vehicle dashboard where it can be seen clearly from outside the vehicle.
- All permits sold are non-refundable; day permits are non-transferable.
- Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis at all SNO-Park sites. No refunds are issued if your favorite SNO-PARK is full.
- Any vehicle parked at a SNO-Park site without a permit properly displayed is subject to an $94.50 fine. Should you receive a fine and have questions, contact the court or law enforcement office of the County in which the SNO-Park site is located.
