I'm flying into SLC and renting an SUV tomorrow, then driving up to Wilson, WY. I read a multitude of threads here and on TGR forums, and it seems like the route described below (Soda Springs/Freedom) is great, but maybe not if there's been a lot of snow. I know the mountains have gotten dumped on, but it looks like maybe the valleys have seen quite a bit less. What kind of road conditions can I expect right now? The WYDOT webcams all show the major roads as being snow-covered, but pretty well plowed. Would ID-34 be similar?
Through Soda Springs, ID and Freedom, WY. Many locals think this is the quickest route.
Take the I-15 North out of Salt Lake City towards Pocatello, ID.
Turn Right at US-30 to Lava Hot Springs, Lund, and Soda Springs, ID
In Soda Springs, turn left at 3rd E. Street, which is ID-34.
You will be on a bridge crossing the Railroad tracks.
In about a block turn right on E. Hooper Ave. (part of ID-34)
ID-34 bends to the right at Greys Lake
As you enter Freedom,turn right on County Line Rd.
Continue less than a mile, and then turn Left at WY-239
Continue for about a mile and a half, then Turn Left on US 89 just after passing Freedom Arms.
Bear right at the US-26/ US-89 junction continuing North to Jackson on US-89
Bear left at Hoback Junction continuing North on US-89/ US-191
--> Note: if you're going to Teton Village, take a left at WY-22 just as you enter Jackson; then, turn right at the Moose-Wilson Rd./ WY 390.
