My husband and I will be flying into San Francisco December 10th and driving up the coast to Seattle, then across to Hamilton Montana by the 18th of December. After visiting friends in Montana, we will be driving back to Boise, Idaho for Christmas with family and driving on to Las Vegas after xmas and then back to SF for New Years.
We will be hiring a SUV in case the roads get bad, but as we have never driven in snow or ice (we're from sunny Queensland, Australia) I am wondering if we are likely to experience any road closures or major problems if we stick to the main interstates and roads for our journey?
Any suggestions would be welcome. We probably wouldn't be doing things in this order or at this time of year but a friend is getting married in vegas on Dec 28th (which is why I have such a random order of events).
Thank you in advance.
