The agency responsible for state parks needs a winter sports enthusiast to serve on the Washington State Winter Recreation Advisory Committee.

The position is for a nonmotorized recreationist, such as a cross-country skier, snowshoer, dog musher or skijorer from King County. Nominations must be received by July 31 and the appointment starts Oct. 1.

The committee reviews vital issues and advises the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission on program policy and funding priorities for snow removal, trail grooming, sanitation, education and enforcement.

The winter recreation program manages more than 3,000 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, 300 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and more than 120 Sno-Parks — plowed parking areas near snowmobile and cross-country ski trails.

Contact the program at winter@parks.wa.gov; P.O. Box 42650, Olympia, WA 98504-2650; or through the Washington Telecommunications Relay Service at 800-833-6388 toll free, to request applications and submit nominations. Call 360-902-8684 to learn more about the nomination process.
