The way back to airport was easier. That was September. What if we stay home in western CO.. How's the little roads near Cedaredge in the middle of winter?? Help me help myself! Does weed really help? Seriously!

Default Wisconsin to SoCal

Hi. First time posting on here so I'm not even sure I'm doing it right.

I'll be heading from Wisconsin to southern California at the end of November and heading back in the first week of December. I've driven I-70 eastbound from Vegas before, but never during winter conditions. At that time of year, is there likely to be much snow?

I've got plenty of experience driving in mountains, and in snow, but never at the same time, so I'm trying to plan my route ahead of time.

First week of December will probably see snow but if you hit Eagle & Summit Counties in late morning or afternoon it shouldn't be that bad. The snowplows and big trucks & heavy traffic usually take care of the snow on the road. There could be a blizzard that calls for a pit stop or overnight or re-routing on I-40 but maybe 3 chances out of 4 it won't be a problem. If you are in Vegas and see heavy snow forecast for Vail, just take I-40 and it likely will be easier, less to worry about.

Is the southern route (I-40 through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona) a possibility?
