more about CCWRC

Central Cascades Winter Recreation Council began Nov. 10th 2007 by Chris Caveizel who saw a need for more coordination and communication between users of the various Sno-Parks.  The Sno-Park program is heavily dependent on volunteers such as CCWRC.


The group meets once a month in the winter months (usually at a King County library) and meetings are open to the public.  CCWRC does not manage any finances nor make any decisions concerning the Sno-Park budget.  Our focus is communication / coordination and education.


10 voting members of the council consist of representatives of clubs, snowshoer, snow play.  Terms are for 2 years.
