I'm not sure??

Is anyone brave enough to take your Class A up to a ski area?
I have a 1999 34N Pace Arrow, 22,000 lbs.
I just got done pricing the rooms at Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, and instantly thought of taking my RV instead.
My coach was originally bought in Alaska, we never had a problem staying warm.
Has anyone driven a big rig into the mountains to stay in while you ski??
Better yet, short of calling all the camping parks, is anyone even open, would I get there and not have someplace to stay?
No better than the parks keep thier web sites current,(Open-Closed for the winter) calling would be the only recourse.
I still have a couple of weeks to get the information, but I would Like to know.

I'm not even brave enough to drive my CAR to a ski area, let alone a 22,000 pound RV. Snow is something I like to look at from in front of a nice warm fireplace, not to actually be outside in.

It's the one drawback to living in Washington, but fortunately, Anacortes doesn't usually get much snow.

I think it was Peter Ustinov who commented "There's enough unhappiness in this world without strapping two lenghts of guttering to your boots and going sliding down a mountainside".

Larry, if you have a toad, Mt Washington on Vancouver Island is only a short drive from Campbell River and they have RVing sites that you can use year round. My step daughter lives in Campbell River and we can be on the ski hill within 35 minutes of leaving their Willow Point area home.

Mt Hood RV Village is open year round. If you have a toad this is an ideal base camp for Ski Bowl. It is just west of Welches so only has snow on the roads when snow reaches the lower elevations. We have spent the week between Christmas & New Years there. Nice place.
