Hi all - my first post, thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give.
I have 4 days clear at the end of a long-haul trip from Europe to the west coast in March/April and was wondering what the feasibility is of being able to drive from Vegas to Denver in that time. This is primarily about seeing what's out of the window, covering around 200 miles per day, but I hope there's going to be some time for getting out and about.
Dates are 2nd-6th April. Is there still likely to be significant snow risk on the Utah/Colorado roads to make the limited timescale inadvisable? Assuming the trip is do-able, is it wise to divert off the Interstate to improve the outlooks?!
I appreciate there are threads with route advice, but it appears that many take rather longer over the journey. So I'm looking to take the most scenic driving route rather than visit the best museums or attractions. Any thoughts welcomed.
Final question - do I tick the snow tires box on the rental car reservation?
Best wishes from Scotland.
