Winter Wonderland

RVing in the winter brings opportunities for all types of fun in the snow.

Tips for Winter RVing

  • Choose travel days wisely! Look carefully at the forecast for any potential bad weather. Try to keep your schedule flexible enough that you can postpone travel if there’s any chance of bad weather.
  • Make your water hose freeze-proof by wrapping it with heat tape, aluminum foil, and foam pipe insulation secured with electrical tape.
  • Keep a few micro heaters handy to help thaw problem areas should temperatures drop below your RV’s “comfort zone.”
  • Make sure you always have at least one full propane bottle to keep your house heater going!

We camped at the following locations to take advantage of the best winter deal around: Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass. It is good at the following resorts: Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Canyons, Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Afton Alps, Mt. Brighton, and Arapahoe Basin.


  • Tahoe Valley Campground, South Lake Tahoe, CA
  • Park City RV Resort, Park City, UT
  • Tiger Run RV Resort, Breckenridge, CO
Snowboarding is one of our favorite things to do. It’s a great way to spend time together. The views are amazing. It’s great exercise and it’s super fun.

Jenn and Brent

In 2011, the Newschool Nomads sold almost all their stuff to hit the road for a full time RVing adventure. They intended to spend one year traveling but fell in love with the RV life so much that one year turned into four! Now settled in Colorado, they enjoy RVing every chance they get and look forward to returning to the full time RV life once “the Bigs” fly the nest. They are passionate about encouraging families to get out and explore, connect, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
