  1. Default Vegas to Spokane for Christmas (and back)

    I'm going to be headed up to Spokane/Coeur d'Alene after Christmas from Vegas. I've made the drive in the summer and lived in N Idaho during the winters so I can handle driving in snow. My question is, Knowing the Passes coming in from Montana can be a bear in the winter, can anyone tell me about Highway 93 north through Nevada in December and Highway 84 through Boise and NE Oregon are at that time. Are there any passes that close regularly or require chains?

    Thanks for your help!

    I'd recommend you take I-15 all the way to I-90. My mapping software says that's fastest, and the Interstates are kept clear with a low likelihood of needing chains. I-84 and US-395 is a viable alternate, but I don't think I'd want to take a chance of getting caught in a storm on US-93, that's a very desolate road.
