winter boondocking

Hi There!
I am in Washington and we are starting to plan for boondocking at Mt Baker (a ski resort here). There is no electricity or sewer hook up. We have a 69 globetrotter. When we purchased, the water heater was broken and leaks according to previous owner. They never really needed it. We are hoping to rely on our propane heater to keep us warm over the weekends in the winter while we ski the mountain. Could you give us any tips about camping in the snow? I have read a couple of things about wrapping pipes, but I'm not sure if this pertains to water heaters, or all water pipes in general. Any and all tips are appreciated! It usually doesn't get toooo far below freezing, but definitely can and baker gets a TON of snow!
