There are three types of sno-park permits:

An ANNUAL permit costs $15, and is valid during the sno-park season, Nov. 15 to April 30. On average the state sells about 59,000 annual permits per year.

THREE-DAY permits cost $7. This is the least-popular type of permit, with an average of 3,800 sold per year.

A ONE-DAY permit goes for $3. This is the most popular type of permit, with about 97,000 sold in an average year.

Drivers who park in a sno-park without displaying a valid permit could be fined $30.

Permits are available at all DMV offices (3370 10th St. in Baker City) and at many sporting goods stores and ski areas, including Ski Anthony Lakes. Private vendors can add a surcharge to the basic permit fee. Ski Anthony Lakes, for example, adds $1 to each permit fee.
