Summer adventures in the mountains are often synonymous with camping, but too often, that can mean staying in a tourist trap heaving with crowds, packs of screeching children, and fleets of Amtrak-size motorhomes. For those who prefer their campgrounds a bit more Zen, yet accessible to town, there are plenty of ski area options offering everything from primitive, backcountry-feeling sites to sweet, riverside digs, with (almost) nary an RV satellite dish in sight. To help end Outdoors Week with a bang, Curbed Ski has rounded up some of the best from Whistler to Telluride, right this way.
Please note that the campsites are ordered from west to east, not from best to worst.
