Sno-Park pass price could double this winter

Nordic skiers, snow machine drivers, sledders and others will see the price for a day pass at Sno-Parks double this winter if Washington State Parks has its way.

At its Oct. 1 meeting, State park officials will vote on a proposal for various fee increases including raising the $10 per vehicle day rate to $20, parks spokeswoman Linda Burnett said.

"The reason for the increase is to encourage people to buy an annual pass," Burnett said.

The proposal calls for increasing the price for a season pass from $30 to $35. Special grooming permits (required at some Nordic ski parks) would also increase from $30 to $35.

A new $35 fee for out-of-state snow machines would be added under the proposal, Burnett said. Washington snow machine users already pay the Sno-Park fee when they register their vehicles, Burnett said.

Sno-Park passes go on sale Nov. 1.
