Mountain Collective Tour with RV (overnight stays allowed?)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I tried to search this up on the forums with limited luck, so please excuse if the discussion is old news. 

 

I want to do a ski tour of the Mountain collective hills, mainly:

 

- Jackson Hole

- Aspen Snowmass

- Snowbird

 

I was wondering if anyone has updated information on staying overnight in an RV in the area. If the hills allow for RV plug-in, or best options close by?

 

For Snowbird, someone recommended the Walmart. J.H someone said no go and never offered any other solutions.

 

Any information from the locals would be killer.

 

thanks team!

Side questions - Do you have an RV already? If so have you used it in winter before? If not what kind are you planning to rent?

Winter RVing can be tricky. I don't use my water system in my truck camper in winter and I carry two 20lb. propane tanks, have a 18,000 btu furnace, 2 AGM batteries and a 2000watt Honda generator and my truck is 4X4.

 

The Walmart in Sandy Utah is open 24 hours and allows RVs. I have also parked overnight without hassle in the Ski Bus ($5.00? round trip) parking lot. There is also a Sandy Community rec centre across the street with pool, spa hot tub, and sauna for about $5.00.

 

For Aspen I plan on staying at the open year round campground in Basalt.

 

Jackson Hole area does not allow overnight RVing and no year round campgrounds that I am aware of, however because summer is the main tourist season and winter is the off season there are some cheap accommodation in the town of Jackson (about 20min. from the skiing). I will be staying for a week at the Motel 6 where it is $50/night plus 30% off for a week long stay so it works out cheaper than some campgrounds. The rooms are small but recently remodeled and there are enough rooms that I will not bother to make a reservation. You can drive to the Stilson Shuttle Lot, about halfway to the skiing, day park for free and take a free shuttle bus to the skiing or catch a ski bus ($5.00?) from in front of one of the hotels in Jackson town. Or pay $15/day to park right near the lifts.

 

My itinerary is to show up at Snowbird/Alta just after Presidents Day for a few days on my MCP and then on to Aspen and then a week in Jackson Hole to coincide with the EpicSki JH Gathering Feb. 26 to March 6.

 

Hope this helps.

JH will be a no go.

 

Snowmass has the Aspen-Basalt Campground about 10 miles to the North. Which is open year round. Ski bus to Aspen from Snowmass.

 

No overnight parking at Snowbird [enforced ] Wallydocking in Sandy though and it's on the ski bus route.

Hi Dano,

 

Some friends and I will be traveling through Salt Lake by RV in March on a Mountain Collective tour. Will probably stay at Walmart in Sandy for a couple nights. I am looking for more info on the Rec Centre you mention in Sandy. Sounds awesome, but I cant figure out where it is. Thanks, Andrew.

The rec centre is in Alta Canyon Park across from the ski shuttle bus stop, across from Little Cottonwood Shopping Mall off Highland Drive.
