I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the roads are usually pretty clear in the mountain passes the first week of November? I'm flying out to Utah to bring my sister here and we're going to be driving her car back the first weekend in November. I'm hoping that it's early enough in the season (Nov. 3rd) that there won't be too much of a snow/ice problem, but looking at the weather reports today makes me a little nervous because they are already saying possible snow this weekend for around 4,000 feet. I'm sure it will melt quickly but do you think we're asking for trouble driving through the Oregon passes (Blue Mountain I think) and Snoqualmie Pass at that time of year? How bad does it usually get? I've only done one round trip drive through there and that was in April. Do they keep on top of clearing/de-icing those highways pretty well? And what about an alternate route other than I-84, I-82, I-90 if we do run into bad weather? Thanks for any help/advice!
