Nordic ski areas and non-motorize Sno-Parks

SNO-PARKS

The state’s non-motorized sno-parks are some of the most popular cross-country skiing trail systems in the state. To use these trails, you must purchase a pass for your vehicle. Passes are $20 per day, $40 for the season and an additional $40 for a Special Groomed Trail pass. For more information, visit parks.wa.gov/winter. Here’s info for some of Washington’s most popular non-motorized sno-parks and some of its other top cross-country skiing areas.
