Who lives winter RVing? Just because there’s snow on the ground and a chill in the air doesn’t mean RV season is finished. Camping offers an affordable alternative for a multi-day stay in the mountains. “People don’t have to hibernate in the winter,” says Cherie Ball, owner/operator of Wheel Estate, an online community of RV rentals that connects travellers with trailers for their adventures. There are many options throughout the Rocky Mountains for people looking to camp in the winter seasons. Call ahead for the best service when booking a winter camping site.
