Plan ahead for your Sno-Park adventures, ODOT advises


SALEM, Ore. (KTVZ) -- As fall quickly turns to winter and you prepare for favorite activities and adventures, ODOT advises that you remember to purchase your Sno-Park permit.

A Sno-Park permit is required for all Sno-Parks and must be displayed in your vehicle from November 1 to April 30.

Funds from Oregon’s Sno-Park program help provide snow removal at nearly 100 Sno-Parks across the state. There are Sno-Parks in most of Oregon’s mountain passes. For a list of Sno-Parks, visit under Travel Center.

Whether you are a winter enthusiast who goes to the Sno-Parks all season or someone who enjoys the snow occasionally, there is a permit that meets your needs. You can select a $25 seasonal permit, a $9 three-day permit (good for three consecutive days), or a $4 one-day permit.

Permits can be purchased:

  • Online at,
  • In person from permit agents at various resorts, sporting goods stores and other retail outlets. Sales agents may charge an additional service fee for each permit they sell. Due to COVID-19, Sno-Park permits are not available at DMV offices this season.

Plan ahead!

  • If you buy a one-day or three-day permit online, allow time for the permit to be mailed to you.
  • If you buy an annual permit online, a printable interim permit is emailed to you immediately. You can use this interim annual permit for up to 14 days until you receive the annual permit in the mail.

Questions on purchasing a Sno-Park permit or to become a Sno-Park permit sales agent contact DMV, Business Regulation, at 503-945-5052 or

Sno-Park permits issued by California and Idaho are honored in Oregon and Oregon permits, other than the temporary seasonal permit, are honored in those states.
