  1. Default LV to Portland, Or

    We will be using I-5 to LV at end of May2015. Will be heading to Bishop, CA on our return later in the week. Several routes have been suggested but given the time of year wonder what the road conditions are like via Susanville to Klamath Falls, Or. vs Susanville to Weeds. Would like to hear what others have done and why.

    I done Portland-Reno via Susanville route as Reno, NV was my night stop.

    The Portland to LV via Susanville/Reno can be bit challenging as going through Lassen National Forest as higher elevations has snow on ground and can snow when weather is right for snowing.

    On the way back I would recommend LV to Portland via US93/I84 west via Boise, ID. Very beautiful scenery of mountains and much less traffic. Spring time should be good drive through Nevada/Idaho and Oregon.

    Welcome to RTA!

    I doubt snow will be an issue at the end of May. You can get road conditions for all states at the Safe Travel USA site.
