Snowmobile Registration
Snowmobile registrations are valid October 1 through September 30 and includes a seasonal snowmobile Sno-Park permit for the towing vehicle parked at designated snowmobile Sno-Parks. Snowmobiles are registered through the Department of Licensing and registered agents. Fees are as follows:
  • Non-vintage snowmobile: $30
  • Vintage snowmobile (sleds at least 30 years old): $12
Sno-Park Permits
Permits cost more if purchased from a retail vendor (vendor service charge) instead of directly from State Parks. Fees are as follows:
  • One-day permit: $20 ($22 from retail vendor)
    Allows one-day parking at all winter sports Sno-Parks, including special groomed trails areas.
  • Seasonal permit: $40 ($42 from retail vendor)

Others require both the seasonal permit and the special groomed trails permit (sticker) in order to use the designated Sno-Park.
  • Special Groomed Trails permit: $40 ($42 from retail vendor)
    Required, in conjunction with seasonal permit above, for parking at designated special groomed trails Sno-Parks with higher trail maintenance costs.
