My mum and I are visiting my brother in San Fransisco for a few days in December and then the plan is to drive to Colorado (Florissant) where we are spending Christmas.
I posted on another website and got told that I should book flights instead, but then I saw other posts with people asking similar questions and just being told to be careful and watch the weather forecasts....
So I'm hoping I can get some good advice here. I know that there are rules about driving in CO during Winter and being prepared. Both of us are confident drivers and I have driven in the snow before (but not an expert).
Do you think that drive is doable? I was thinking we would have 3 nights / 4 days to do it, but we could take a bit longer if needed. From what I have read I believe the possible "worst" part could be the last section of the drive, around the Vail/Idaho Springs area.
Instead of the I-70 from SLC should we take the I-80?
