Please note, pets are not permitted in or near the Taylor Creek Marsh and are not allowed the Stream Profile Chamber.
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 display a parking permit for each vehicle parked at a SNO-Park.
