Does Mirror Lake Trailhead Require a Sno-Park Pass?

Does anyone know if the new Mirror Lake Trailhead Requires a Sno-Park Pass? Online it says that there isn't currently a fee, but maybe it just hasn't been updated.

It didn't as of mid-November when I went... but it's hard to see how they could NOT require one eventually, given that Skibowl does.

This is a State of Oregon Program to help with paying for snowplows. You are not supposed to park on 26 during the winter. The official trailhead is at skibowl so I would say yes.

the new Trailhead is connected to the Skibowl Lot, they are plowing it to keep it open so it's hard to see how you would not need a pass. the old trail head and an unknown amount of the old trail have been decommissioned.
