Here in the Pacific Northwest skiing and snowboarding are king of winter outdoor activities. The most dedicated of snow bums find it most adventurous, and cost effective, to sleep in their cars or take an RV up to the mountains. There is a whole culture of RVing mountain lovers and a large number of amazing ski resorts with RV lots. One of the best ways to rent an RV in Seattle in the winter is to go on a low budget ski trip.
