Park ‘N Ski Information:

Strap on the skis or snowshoes and enjoy the snow at any of 17 Park N’ Ski areas across Idaho. Over 180 miles of groomed and ungroomed trails are marked in some of the most scenic areas in Idaho.

Revenues from the sale of permits go toward plowing parking lots and improving Nordic ski and snowshoe opportunities. Upon purchasing, skiers and snowshoers can designate which park they would like to have receive their fee. This gives permit purchasers an opportunity to help make improvements to an area of their choice.

Additionally, annual permits are good at Park N’ Ski areas in Oregon due to a reciprocity agreement. You must purchase and display your permit in the proper location on your vehicle in order to avoid citations.

The Park N’ Ski program is managed primarily by Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, with cooperation and support from U.S. Forest Service, the Idaho Department of Lands, the Idaho Department of Transportation, and many local recreation user groups who provide volunteer trail-enhancement work to make it all possible.
