By now, the winter weather is in full force. The snow is flying, ice is glazing over the ponds and lakes, and noses are dripping thanks to freezing temps. That means it's time to grab your skis or snowboard, pack the RV, and hit the road. We've got our top picks of campgrounds and RV parks for skiers and snowboarders, ordered by state.
1. Tiger Run RV Resort, Breckenridge, CO
With accommodations for 200 RVs, Tiger Run RV Resort gives you the best access to the slopes in Breckenridge, CO, and Keystone, CO. Breckenridge also boasts a local brewery where you can enjoy an après-ski drink.
2. Meadows RV Park, Ketchum, ID (near Sun Valley)
Although services are more limited in the winter, if you're self-contained this may be your perfect getaway. Only four miles from Sun Valley resort known for fluffy powder and consistently ranks highly among riders.
3. Zephyr Cove RV Park and Campground, Zephyr Cove, NV (near Lake Tahoe)
If you plan to make a little mischief at Heavenly or Squaw Valley this season , reserve one of 93 RV sites or 57 tent sites at Zephyr Cove. The grounds are located just a few miles from some of the most popular ski areas in the country.
4. North Pole Resorts, Lake Placid, NY
This one's for you, East Coasters. Spend some time in upstate New York's home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games. North Pole Resorts' has a limited number of RV sites available, with limited facilities, but if you are self contained it is a good base just around the bend from world-class downhill and cross-country skiing.
5. Cedar City KOA, Cedar City, UT (near Brian Head)
Southern Utah is best known for Zion and Moab National Parks, but you may be surprised to know it has first-rate skiing as well. Make a reservation at Cedar City KOA, which has 83 RV sites, 32 tent sites, cabins and cottages open all year. It's just 29 miles from Brian Head Resort.
6. Rockport State Park, Peoa, UT (near Park City)
At Rockport State Park, less than ten miles from Park City, you are not far from Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley, but you'll pay a fraction of what the resort-goers do. You're also just down the road from the Sundance Film Festival.
7. Lake Dunmore Kampersville, Rutland, VT (near Killington)
Killington is among the most popular mountains for snow lovers in the northeast. Lake Dunmore Kampersville has 200 RV sites, which is good because you're going to have to drive a bit to get to the slopes. Worry not, it's worth the trek.
