  1. Default Los Angeles, CA to Breckenridge, CO

    I was looking on mapquest for estimated time, and they say 14 hours which seems absurd to me. When they calculate this I'm assuming its under "perfect conditions" (No traffic, No severe weather, etc...) For someone driving there in mid-December (leaving on a Sunday) how long do you think it would take?
    Also, for someone inexperienced with driving in harsh conditions, would the I-15N and the I-70E be the safest routes to take?


    Thanks!

    Well, maybe with a police escort it could be done. For the rest of us, in the real world, assuming dry weather conditions, it will take 16 to 17 hours of travel. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum. It is a reasonable two days of travel and yes, I-15 to I-70 makes the most sense. Here is a field report for part of the trip and here are some winter driving tips.
