Powder chasing

We got lots of snow recently in the PNW and now everybody wants to go powder chasing. Yes, several GoCamp camper vans have snow tires, as well as propane powered furnaces to keep you warm after a day of earning your turns.

 Somewhere there's a winter wonderland out there waiting for you.

Hank and Peter, Alaska residents who are no strangers to snow and cold weather, recently took the van called Rogue to Meadows Ski Resort and spent the night in the parking lot. They woke up to 26 inches of new snow, fresh powder, and an epic day of back country skiing.

Sam and Rebecca are headed out next. They plan to either hit the Northern Cascades and possibly venture up into Canada north of Vancouver, B.C. or head toward the Wallowas, Idaho Sawtooths and Selkirks. They’ll figure it out once they are on the road and chasing the powder!

Eurovan Campers (Rogue, Grand Ronde, Portvandia, Tilly Jane, Marin Mountaineer, Morrison) have propane powered furnaces. The propane tank holds a little less than 5 gallons of propane, enough to cook and run the heater for 7 – 10 days. That’s a lot of skiing!

 Crater Lake in June can still have snow, as Jamie, Tom, and Nick discovered.

And even if you don't plan to ski, in higher elevations you can expect snow well into the spring. So for chilly weather camping in general, other vans in the GoCamp fleet (Maupin, Big Zip, Tumalo, White Walrus) have either propex heaters or Mr Buddy systems that will also keep you toasty and warm.

Make some tracks!
