The Washington State Parks Winter Recreation Program reminds winter recreation enthusiasts that Sno-Park permits will be available for purchase beginning Nov. 1.
Sno-Park permits allow visitors to park in specially cleared, designated parking lots with access to areas around the state for cross-country skiing, skijoring, fat-tire biking, snowmobiling, snow biking, dog sledding, snowshoeing, tubing, snow play and other winter recreation activities.

What Happens If You Don’t Get Your RV Ready For Winter?
Winterizing is not a step you want to skip if you’re storing your RV in the cold this winter. Taking shortcuts with winterization can leave you with big-time problems like broken pipes, water damage, and even damage from condensation. If you leave liquid in the drain lines those can crack in the cold. And damage to the water pump, toilet and sink valves, and drain traps means steep costs when you go to use your RV next year. Put your RV to rest for the winter with peace of mind – schedule your service today.
