Winter Rocky Mountain Roadtrip - Looking for Advice


Dec 1, 2019
Mountain View
Hi all, looking at doing a 10 day road trip between Northern California, Arizona, then up into Utah, potentially Colorado and then Yellowstone for some snowmobiling before going back through Nevada at the end of January to early February (10 days).

My car is a 2018 LR RWD. I would have good snows (eg Nokian) and chains, and have driven in the snow before as I’m from the east coast.

Is this route feasible at this time in this car? Any advice from anyone who has done something similar or lives in the area?

Good that you have snow driving experience and good tires. Check out ABRP for charging. Always assume that you'll have less energy than you need/want because it will be cold, there will be wind and you'll be going up and down. Plan carefully and I'm sure you'll have a ball. I'm envious.
