Use the checklist below to help you prep your rig for your next winter adventure, or have one of the professionals at All Seasons RV do it for you.
While many RV owners around the Pacific Northwest have already buttoned up and winterized their RVs for the season, some adventurous families and retirees alike are just getting ready to head south for the winter. If you’re not quite ready to put your RV into hibernation but are unable to take a lengthier trip like your snow birding kin, you can still enjoy a winter “getaway” in your RV right here at home.
With year-round outdoor recreation opportunities across the state, many area RV parks and resorts stay open during the winter months, providing local RV owners ample opportunities [...]
We happen to think the Northwest offers some of the best winter outdoor activities of anywhere in the country. From snowshoeing, to skiing, to snowmobiles, there’s a bit of everything for enjoying some powder. If you have a youth who is interested in snowmobiling (and who wouldn’t be?), you will want to encourage safety from the start. A great place to begin is the State Parks Youth Snowmobile Safety Class.
Free Snowmobile Class
The Washington State Parks Winter Recreation Program, Chelan County Sheriff’s Office and Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club are offering a free snowmobile safety class to young snowmobilers this month.
The “Safe Rider” class runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Lake Wenatchee Recreation Club’s clubhouse, 14400 Chiwawa Loop Road, Leavenworth (Driving directions). Participants must register by Friday, Dec. 11.
Let’s be honest, there are many of us that cringe at the thought of trudging out in the snow to go tent camping in the dead of winter. However, with the right gear and the right smarts, winter camping can actually provide an incredibly peaceful and rejuvenating experience. Here are 10 winter camping tips to take into consideration before packing your bags.
Pack the snow
Wherever you decide to set up camp, it’s crucial to pack down the snow first. If you have snow shoes or skis along this can make the job quicker. A good pair of boots will assist you as well, although it may take you a bit longer. Packing down the snow ensures you don’t puncture a hole in your tent when accidentally stepping on some soft [...]

There’s snow in the mountains, and that means time to winterize. Schedule your RV winterization service with the expert Service Team at All Seasons RV!
What Happens If You Don’t Get Your RV Ready For Winter?
Winterizing is not a step you want to skip if you’re storing your RV in the cold this winter. Taking shortcuts with winterization can leave you with big-time problems like broken pipes, water damage, and even damage from condensation. If you leave liquid in the drain lines those can crack in the cold. And damage to the water pump, toilet and sink valves, and drain traps means steep costs when you go to use your RV next year.

Sno-Park permits are now available for purchase. However, there are some new regulations you will want to be aware of.
Sno-Park permits allow visitors to park in specially cleared, designated parking lots with access to areas around the state for cross-country skiing, skijoring, fat-tire biking, snowmobiling, snow biking, dog sledding, snowshoeing, tubing and other winter sports and snow play.
Keeping it simple
Starting this year, the Discover Pass will no longer be required along with the daily Sno-Park permit in Sno-Parks that are on State Park property. (Crystal Springs, Easton Reload, Fields Spring, Hyak, Lake Easton, Lake Wenatchee, Pearrygin Lake and Mount Spokane.)“The Winter Recreation Program often heard from permit holders about how cumbersome the old requirements were,” said Winter Recreation Program Manager Pamela McConkey. “This change in permit and pass requirements means less confusion for winter recreation enthusiasts.”
Washington State Parks have announced the 2019-2020 winter schedule, with more than 100 parks remaining open for camping or day-use activities. The winter schedule is now available online. More than 100 parks will remain open during the winter, while about 19 parks are closed until dates in March, April or May, due to weather and other circumstances.
Each year, Washington State Parks identifies which parks will remain open and which will offer limited or partial services, such as fewer camping sites and restrooms. Specific areas within a park may be closed, and some parks are open only on weekends and holidays. Campers should be aware that some state parks may shut off water systems, even if the park is open. Some boat launches are closed, and some docks are removed for the winter. State Parks works to [...]
Autumn’s about to arrive, and winter won’t be too long after. It’s time to hunker down and get ready!
But even if your home is 100% prepared for the coming drop in temperatures (and leaves), it can be easy to forget about your camper. Your RV needs some seasonal love, too!
So whether it’s a motorhome, travel trailer, or tiny camper van living in your driveway, don’t leave it out in the cold — at least, not metaphorically.
Here’s a quick guide to how to prep your RV for the quickly-approaching fall season.
RV Autumn Maintenance Tips
Although autumn is a fantastic time to take camping trips, many families take a break from vacationing for September and October. The fun-filled summer’s at an end and school is back in session, so it can be a good time to get back [...]
The gold rush is on in the North Cascades. And let’s not forget red and orange, too.
Fall colors will peak in the next few weeks on mountain trails, and the clock is ticking before snow closes State Route 20, the North Cascades Highway. It’s arguably the best time of year to access some of the most beautiful trails in the state.
Along the spine of the North Cascades toward Central Washington, you’ll find a bonus too — large stands of alpine larch trees, which have needles like evergreens that turn a stunning gold in the fall.
“They only grow at higher elevations on the East Side,” Seifried said. Early season snow adds to the beauty of the turning larch trees, she added.
Now’s your last chance to hit the following, scenic trails before [...]
