I am organizing a trip in mid December, which involves flying into Sacramento, hiring a car and driving to South Lake Tahoe, where we will stay for a couple of days. We then plan to drive to Las Vegas.
Being from Australia, I don't know much about snow and driving.
Is this even possible?
I read on a website that to get to Vegas, I need to go through passes that will be closed. I went on google maps for directions and there is a whole section that says closed for winters.
We are just looking at a standard car. Do we need to buy snow chains?
Any information about the above will be appreciated.Edited: 9:47 pm, June 27, 2011
