TRIP TO THE SNOW BY MOTORHOME

The cold is coming and with it the snow! Have we ever told you that motorhome getaways are not only enjoyed in the heat and good weather? Have you experienced the great feeling of being in the mountains in an idyllic white landscape and finding yourself inside the motorhome in short sleeves?

Yes, the motorhome is also a great ally for outings to the snow or to go skiing, since it provides us with all the comfort and needs in a place where we could not do it otherwise.

Imagine waking up at the foot of the ski slope, about to practice your favorite sport knowing that when you return to the motorhome you will be able to warm up, shower, rest and eat as if you were at home!

We are in a privileged location! High mountains a few kilometers that allow us to escape to the snow without giving up the freedom, convenience, and comfort that we want.

Even so, we must keep in mind some important things:

  • To go safely, it is essential to wear chains or winter contact tires. The weather in the mountains changes very quickly and although it may not seem like it out of the blue, we may have to use them.
  • Do not turn off the heating even without being in the motorhome. When the temperature drops to 0º there is a danger that the water pipes and toilets will freeze. For this reason, when you go skiing, walking, eating ... it is advisable to leave the heating on, even if it is at a low temperature.
  • Check the level of the batteries as they discharge earlier in the cold. Therefore, it will be important that we do not have the motorhome parked, without starting the engine or connecting to the power for more than a day. Although the motorhome has a solar panel in winter the days are short and not always sunny.

There are many ski slopes around us that are enabled or allow you to park and spend the night in a motorhome, here we leave you some proposals that you can explore.

  • La Molina (Girona): It is allowed to park and spend the night in a motorhome and camper in its car park. In addition, it has services.
  • Vallter 2000 (Girona): It is allowed to park and spend the night in a motorhome and camper in its car park, but it does not have services.
  • Baqueira Beret (Lleida): It is allowed to park and spend the night in a motorhome and camper in its car park, but there are no services.
  • Grandvalira (Andorra): It is allowed to park and spend the night in a motorhome and camper in its car park, but there are no services. If you need services with water and electricity, we recommend the Encamp car park.
  • Vallnord Ordino-Arcalís (Andorra): In the town of Ordino you will find a small area for motorhomes and camper vans with electricity and emptying services. You can also park and spend the night at the Pal-Arinsal station.

We remind you that in Ruviway we rent you the motorhome so that you can discover and enjoy this way of traveling, the freedom that traveling by motorhome provides is unique. The route concept takes on meaning when being able to decide at any time where I want to go, where I want to sleep and what I want to do.

Everything and having a prior planning, traveling by motorhome allows us to adapt the trip to each moment, to each sensation, to our vital rhythm and that of the environment.
