The Best Hipcamps for Winter Sports

With the holidays upon us, we’ve found ourselves dreaming of sparkling lights, days spent playing in snow, and nights cozied up by a warm fire. Each season offers new ways to enjoy the outdoors, so don’t let a drop in temperatures stand in the way of getting your nature fix!

We picked some of our favorite camping and glamping sites from across the country to enjoy snow sports use them as inspiration to plan your next winter adventure:

At 11,950 feet, Weston Pass Hut is a unique backcountry experience for winter adventurers, facing an open valley with stunning views of Mount Holy Cross and the surrounding mountains. Backcountry skiers and snowboarders can access terrain ranging from steep bowls to mild slopes to suit all skill levels.
