RV Powder Tour - Colorado
If adventure is your middle name, then why not try something completely different, by free on the open road with one of our exclusive RV tours! Travelling and sleeping in a recreational vehicle is an American institution and one of the best ways to see the country in all its glory. If you see a fellow RV'er on the road, don't forget to honk!
The US is your oyster and of course you are free to go where that cool wind takes you, but we have suggested a trip which we feel takes in the very best of Colorado's ski areas, as well as some stunning sights and authentic towns along the way.

- The San Juan Range of mountains is the only area of Colorado where heli-skiing is permitted. If you really want those authentic fresh tracks, there's only one choice!
- If you feel like a big comfy bed and a bit of R&R, substitute a couple of days in the RV with a couple of nights in one of dozens of hotels, all with relaxing facilities and top-notch dining. How about a couple of nights at The Sebastian in Vail?
- Back-country ski tours are a popular and inspiring element of Colorado skiing. Most resort operate guided tours beginning and ending within the ski area (with a whole lot of powder in between) so you can really earn those turns.
