There are 19 SNO-PARK sites throughout the Sierra Nevada. Each has a distinctive brown highway sign identifying its location. At each SNO-PARK, visitors have access to snow-cleared parking lots and sanitation facilities.
The sites can accommodate self-guided activities such as snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and general snow play. Snow conditions determine accessibility and opportunities available at each location.
SNO-PARKs are open seasonally between November 1 and May 30. Visitors must display a parking permit for each vehicle parked at a SNO-PARK.
Day use permits may be purchased for $5.00 or a season permit for $25.00 from various vendors throughout California and Nevada. Check the website for a current list of where you can purchase a permit, or call the OHMVR Division at (916) 324-4442.
New for 2020, Tube Tahoe is the home of winter fun for the whole family. At over 500 feet in length, their machine groomed tubing lanes are some of the longest in the area. They’re located in Meyers, next to the Holiday Market.
This privately owned snow play area features groomed and managed sledding hills, restrooms, and parking. User fees are $30.00 per vehicle, and there’s an extra parking fee for larger vehicles such as motor homes and vehicles with trailers. Currently, there are no season passes and no overnight parking. Adventure Mountain is not part of the SNO-PARK system; therefore, they do not accept SNO-PARK tickets.
Hours: Monday – Friday 10 am to 4 pm, Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, from late November to April, weather and snow permitting.
