I'm from Australia and i am planning a drive from SF to Aspen Via Vegas.
We are going to head a fair way down the coast i think before we head into vegas, but my question was about the drive from Vegas to Aspen.
We are planning to go along i15 and i70 (detour past Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam) We are a little bit worried about the road conditions, I've heard it's all double lane interstate all the way but im wondering if maybe i should fly instead as I have never driven in snow before (I have plenty of experience on gravel/sand/bush bashing/general highway driving) ?
We were planning on renting a front wheel drive (or all wheel drive) small sedan, would this be ok for the mountain roads?
Are the conditions this year worse than normal? I've heard it's bitterly cold at the moment.
Any help would be great.
