Get outside and enjoy winter fun in Washington!
Winter sport enthusiasts and families can spice up the cold months with a variety of snow
activities sponsored by Washington State Parks' Winter Recreation Program. The Evergreen
State is "ever green" only in parts. The Olympic, Cascade, Blue and Selkirk mountains
provide great opportunities for all types of outdoor winter fun.
Cross-country and downhill skiing, skijoring, snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowshoeing and tubing
are available at a variety of locations across the state. In concert with federal agencies, private
landowners and other state agencies, Washington State Parks administers this program in seven national
forests and blocks of state and private forest land. Five major highway passes, kept open to normal
traffic in winter, provide easy access to play sites and trailheads.
The Winter Recreation Program manages Sno-Parks (cleared parking areas) in close proximity to groomed and backcountry trails.
- Snowmobile Sno-Parks are open to both motorized and non-motorized winter recreation.
- Non-motorized Sno-Parks are only open to winter recreation sports such as cross-country skiing, dog sledding, snowshoeing and snow play.
