We are meeting some friends in Steamboat Springs, CO in June 2016. We are leaving from Orange County, CA. I am wondering if we should take the 15 and head east on the 70 or continue further up the 15 to Provo/SLC and cut over on the 80...We plan on driving straight to Utah the first day, spend the night and then head to Steamboat Springs the next morning...Is it worth it to take a different route back...Leaving on a Thursday (spending FRI SAT in Steamboat Springs) and heading back Sun with a Tues or Wed arrival back home (Orange County, CA). Any ideas, suggestions...Thank You!!! Mom/Dad/12 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter.

I-70 is the only way to go. I-80 is too far north, windy and not very scenic.

Yes, stick to the 70. It's a beautiful drive the entire way!

I-15 to I-70, then north to Steamboat. The only way to go, and I would favor State 13 to US 40 as the road on this route is a bit better. In 2009, took a trip over I-70 in CO Rockies, and it was borderline winter conditions in June, but I understand this was an unusual cold early summer in W. Colorado.
