We are leaving Wisconsin on February 16th and hoping to be in Nevada on the evening of the 17th. Four drivers and one night stopping along the way. Which route would be best - Hwy 80 or going the southern route. This arrival date is not set in stone depending on weather conditions. We would prefer I80 but are worried about snow storms going through that area. We would of course keep ourselves posted on weather conditions. We have traveled this route many times in the summer but never during winter.
