Merry Christmas! Just a few questions about getting from Salt Lake City to Snowbird/Park City etc. We're looking to rent a car so that we can easily travel around the Utah resorts but are worried about restrictions in case of heavy snow. It is my understanding that the Sheriff will let you through if you have a) snow chains or b) a 4x4.
All the 4x4's seem super expensive to rent, and no one will provide snow chains. The best solution seems to be to rent any old cheap car and just buy snow chains if we need them. Will this be ok or is there a better/cheaper solution? Or are we worrying over nothing and they'll let us up the mountain in any case?!
