Hi, we are planning on driving from Mission Bc to Anaheim in late December, with an F150 towing a 24ft Trailer. We can take a very indirect route via Vegas as we want to avoid mountain passes and snow if possible. Advice on the best route to take avoiding Oregon snow please.

What is this "snow" you're referring to?

Mission is basically suburban Vancouver. There won't be any snow unless it's one of those rare events. Get on I-5 and keep going until Anaheim.

Obviously the 101 would be really the only alternative if you are wanting to avoid Grant’s Pass/Siskiyou. Longer but more scenic even in the gloom of winter. I would cut west from the 5 south of Salem through Corvallis. Adding a few hours to the trip but if time is no object, why not? As far as I know, there’s no other way to avoid the mountains. Keep in mind weather on the coast can also be nasty in December. No heavy snow, but you can get high winds and sleet on the rain coast, and possibly ice. I’d refrain from committing until you are close enough out to get a sense of the short term weather forecast. The passes could be totally clear, obviating te need to divert from the 5.

Perhaps I stand corrected.

Going along I-5 the whole way (without traffic) is 18 h 58 min

Going along Highway 101 will take 22 h 5 min without traffic

A difference of 3 h 7 min.
