6 Epic Skiing Destinations for your Winter Campervan Trip

A campervan road trip is an excellent way to experience outdoor enthusiasts’ activities. Often when we think of road trips and camping, winter sports aren’t the first thing to come to mind. However, there is absolutely no reason why this should be the case! Some of the best winter getaways in the US are perfect for visiting in a campervan.

As we live in the new normal, ski resorts have adapted their capacity and implemented measures to make your visit a safe one during this ski season.

Let’s look at some of our favorite places to experience the snowfall, perfect for skiers and snowboarders alike. (Don’t worry if you prefer snowshoeing, you won’t be left out!)

Vail, Colorado

Colorado is known for its incredible winter sports destinations, and not too far from Breckenridge is another fantastic ski resort known as Vail. It’s definitely possible to have more than 1 stop on your ski trip.

Located in White River National Forest, Vail has 5,317 acres of skiable terrain for all levels to experience. Even beginner areas have beautiful views, and more advanced skiers can experience the 7 Back Bowls. Blue Sky Basin offers backcountry exploration through playful glades and stunning 360 views of the area’s surrounding peaks.

The alpine village of Vail is lovely, with its heated cobblestone paths. However, accommodation in the village is rather expensive. If you’re keen to have an outdoorsy winter camping experience, the nearby Gore Creek campground is a no-frills backcountry camping experience without hookups, where the sounds of nature will serenade you away from the crowds.

It’s also very plausible to stay in Summit County and make the short drive to Vail for a day of skiing.
