Ledies & Gents,
I'm from Sydney Australia. I'm planning my winter trip to the States Feb 2011 (already have the tickets). Flying to NY and then leaving from SanFran. About 5 weeks in total. Planning to spend about a week in NY, friends, family and so on. Then make my way to Salt lake city. For two weeks stay there and ski. Then back on the road to SanFran. So, I've been surfing my ass off trying to find the best route from NY to SLC.
My initial plan was to catch Amtrack to Denver, get a car and drive to SLC. I've got plenty of time so need the best scenic route I can get, but whichever one doesn't get closed in winter. Preferebly via Rocky mountains.
The next part would be from SLC to SF. Again I'm OK on time and need to find the best possible route to see Nevada and maybe California.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
