It’s not for everyone, but for those of us who enjoy getting outdoors at any time of the year, the flexibility of a winter skiing vacation in an RV might just be the experience you tell your Grandkids about in years to come.
It’s not for everyone, but for those of us who enjoy getting outdoors at any time of the year, the flexibility of a winter skiing vacation in an RV might just be the experience you tell your Grandkids about in years to come. The colder weather certainly brings more challenges and there’s definitely a need to manage your RV resources carefully, particularly if you won’t have 110V power on your trip, but a ski trip in a winter RV rental is the easiest way to move from ski field to ski field as more favourable snow conditions develop.

CanaDream's custom built winter RVs will keep you warm in temperatures as low as -30 celsius.

Alberta and British Columbia are renowned for ski destinations with long runs and plentiful amounts of powder. Whistler tops the popularity list for Guests picking up in Vancouver. Home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America, Whistler has more to offer in a winter RV vacation than just skiing. Year-round you can fly through the forest on an exhilarating high wire adventure with Ziptrek Ecotours – it’s exactly the adrenalin rush you need on a break from the mountain.

A few traditional Canadian winter activities.

Have an interest in snowmobiling, snow shoeing, dog sledding or just dining atop the mountain? Canadian Wilderness Adventures has you covered. Their Crystal Hut Fondue by Snowmobile trip offers an exclusive dining experience, recognized by the Canadian Tourism Commission as a Canadian Signature Experience.

West of Calgary lies some the most amazing ski resorts in Canada. Starting in the East Kootenays, Fernie Alpine Resort is part of the Kootenay Rockies “Powder Highway”. Fernie averages 30 feet of snow each season and offers lift access alpine skiing and snowboarding with 142 runs. Overnighting in your RV here is a breeze with a full-service, year-round RV park in Fernie RV Resort, only a stone`s throw from the mountain.

It's fairly easy to find mountain resorts that offer all the fun winter activities; skiing, snowboarding, cross country and snowshoeing trails.

All 8 resorts on the Powder Highway are laid back with great snow and fewer crowds. Some say it`s among one of the best kept secrets in the skiing world but its reputation is quickly growing. With so many winter ski resort options to choose from, it just makes sense to rent an RV and have the flexibility to move with the snow conditions.

Skiing not good where you are? No problem. It’s only a short drive to the next resort where the conditions may be perfect.
