  1. Default Late December Road Trip - Denver to San Francisco

    Hi, we were hoping to get some advice on a potential road trip over the Christmas holiday. We're debating whether to fly or to drive; we'd prefer to drive but are a bit concerned about the weather.

    We were going to take I-25 north to Wyoming then cut over on I-80. We have a good snow car (volvo AWD wagon) but are still on the fence about what to do. Has anyone done this route a lot or have any advice on how risky this option is?

    Do you live in Denver? If so, then you probably know about the Christmas snow umbrella-effect. (It rarely snows in December, but Denver gets hammered in January. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Your route is the one of choice by most professional truck drivers because the grades are much more gradual and the storms rarely close the highway for long.

    Personally, I would do I-70 -- it is gorgeous in December and much more direct, although you would still want to cut north on I-15 to I-80. I have done it both ways in December many times.
