Balsam Meadows SNO-Park

Balsam Meadows SNO-Park

Balsam Meadows SNO-Park is located on the north side of Highway 168, east of Shaver Lake. 

Recommended Activities: Snow play. No snowmobiling.  

The SNO-Park program provides winter recreation at locations along the Sierra Nevada. Distinctive brown highway signs located along highways identify the SNO-Parks. 

Each SNO-Park provides visitors access to snow-cleared parking lots and sanitation facilities. Snow conditions determine accessibility and opportunities available at each site.

SNO-Parks are open seasonally between November 1st and May 30th. Visitors are required to purchase and display a parking permit for each vehicle parked at a SNO-Park. Fees are $15 per day or $40 for the season.
