Just returned from 3 days near Whistler, BC, Canada. We stayed here: http://www.whistlerrvpark.com
(clean washrooms, hot showers, quiet and, of course, snowy!) The owners are great hosts, they even gave us a bottle of wine as a gift for staying!
This was our first winter camping experience (4 of us in a Trillium) and we had a great time and plan another trip soon.
Here are some things we prepared:
- Chains for tow vehicle and for trailer. (And, of course, snow tires) The hill up to the campground is quite steep and we nearly didn't make it up without chains.
- Bubblewrap on windows
as per another post on this forum. That worked very well, helped with heating!
- Bought DriZAir with the faint hope it would remove humidity but really did not (no surprise as it more for long term storage use). We just cracked a window along with the ceiling vent open and it was nice.
- Boot tray (a must for snow covered boots)
- Put wet coats in vehicle to keep moisture down.
- Thermometer (helps to figure out balance of fresh air and temperature)
- Electric heating pads, just in case. Did not use them but still comforting to have.
- Hot instant soup and tea!
- Silent small electric heater: http://reviews.canadiantire.ca/9045/...ws/reviews.htm
- Propane furnace
didn't work. Not sure why. Fan would blow but no heat and would eventually turn off. Stove worked so it wasn't a gas issue. Yet to check it now that we are back home.
It was lots of fun and we hope to do it again soon.
