  1. Default LA to Denver and in between!

    Hi everyone,
    I am an intrepid Aussie trying to plan a road trip from LA - Denver in December. Currently thinking:

    LA - Las Vegas - Grand Canyon - Navajo - Ski somewhere (Breck/Copper) - Denver

    Only have two weeks - hope this is long enough, only intend to spend 1 night in vegas and hopefully 3/4 in Breck/copper.

    What is the best way to get from Navajo/Monument valley up to Copper/Breck in December?

    Are there any other great ski resorts that are easier to get to and more en route between Monument valley and Denver?

    Thanks so much

    Since you want to spend the largest chunk of this trip skiing, I would cut Las Vegas from the route. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! I live and work in Las Vegas and really like it -- but given the rest of your route -- I think Las Vegas is a bit of an odd detour, especially since you are only going to allow one day here.
    Only have two weeks
    I would suggest LA > Grand Canyon (spent the first night in Flagstaff). Depending how much time you spend at the Grand, stay a night at Gouldings Lodge in Monument Valley (average motel -- great view) and then your best route to the Colorado Rockies is going to be due north on US-191 to Moab and then I-70 to the ski resorts. If you allocate 4-5 days in Arizona and Utah, you will easily have 4-5 days for skiing in the Rockies before driving to Denver.
