So most weekends in the winter we our up in Snoqualmie Pass with our travel trailer patrolling.
I would say it depends on how you plan on using the trailer in the winter. Are you up only in fair weather when the roads are in good shape or towing when there is snow on the road?
Few items of of recommendation either way. Bring show shovel, chains for truck and trailer, and a bag of sand at a minimum.
Second recommendation is get a good set of snow tires for your truck and it takes all the stress out. I have never even remotely gotten stuck or had issues. I have had good luck with Blizzaks but, switched last season to nokian hakkapeliitta lt3 on my truck.
Last piece check on your truck on whether you have open differentials or LSD. Open diffs suck and essentially means you got 2 wheel drive. My current rig I had to have the diffs changed out for LSD. It tows like a champ up snowy roads and more importantly brakes on the down side!
Stevens has power hook ups and I have friends up there a good part of the season with their RV. I heard Crystal is a PITA to get in as the lot fills early and people start parking their RV mid week then leave to head back to work.
Not sure how both resorts are going to handle RV given they both are under a reservation system only this year.
Hope this helps.
