Hi everyone! This is my first time on this forum. My hubby, myself and 4 kids are flying into San Fran from Melbourne Australia mid December 2010. We are renting an SUV and driving up towards Spokane Washington to Trail BC Canada. The rental company has told us that they will only provide all year round tires as opposed to winter tires. Do you think that we will need chains for some of the passes. Although we will be trying to head up as quickly as possible, is there any "must see" places along the way?
Any advice would be welcome. We have driven through the states before but not at this time of year.
