While I look at Hotwire for prices, I usually don't go that route for the actual reservation. I prefer to have something that I can cancel or change if needed. Even if I use Hotwire, I call the local rental desk beforehand to see what they have to say about SUV, AWD, ski rack, and so on. If the local desk is not willing to commit to anything, then I keep looking. My experience in recent years for ski trips was in Reno, SLC, Bozeman. Ended up with a SUV each time, which were all AWD. Seems like I heard on one phone call that during ski season, AWD was standard for an SUV. Ski racks are usually "if available." I've never bothered to get one, but ask to see how tuned in the place is to skiers.

Are the SUV's guaranteed to be 4wd? Not seeing that mentioned in the features?
