I am considering splitting my annual visit to the Rockies into two with ten days or so in and around Summit County in Colorado then driving to Salt Lake City for the balance of my time. This would be in February.I would have a rental car most likely a compact something like a Toyota Corolla which will be a 2 wd and most likely on summer tyres.
I have some experience with driving on snow covered roads in Scotland so some snow does not bother me.
Google maps suggests that I should take I 70 to Green River then turn on to the 191 to Salt Lake City. Is this the best route and will there be any high mountain passes to worry about.
Mr Google says 7 hours but I guess that is in summer.
I am an old fart so might plan to break my journey and take two days anyway.
Is it the best route.
Do they ever have to close this road for bad weather if so for how ling.
What about tyre chains?
