During the winter we all want to try out some new destinations to ski at, but the cost to visit and ski some resorts can get extreme. Our solution is one of our campervans with one of or portable heaters to keep the van warm at night and allow you to get first tracks at the ski resorts. Here is the low down on some of the area resorts. We do recommend renting our portapotty for nighttime and early morning bathroom breaks. We also rent sleeping bags to help with the winter cold. Bear in mind you may also need to move the van to allow plow truck access.
We will update this list with updates or additions so check back before your trip. Also if something is not correct on the list then please contact us.
