We're planning a trip to the US at the end of the year, and I'd really appreciate any thoughts on our plans...
We're thinking of driving from Las Vegas to Park City for a weeks skiing. We considered something closer to Vegas (Lake Tahoe), but think the chance of snow is probably better in Utah at the end of December/beginning of January, and so are prepared to travel a bit further.
We are planning to do this drive in a day - firstly is this feasible and are we likely to have any problems with snow on the roads? Would we need to book a SUV to make the trip?
If we do rent a car, is it easy to drop it off in Salt Lake City as we won't need it while we are there, then get a shuttle into Park City to wherever we are staying?
One more thing - just wondering - does Deer Valley have a township with shops and restaurants, or is it more just hotels and condos (trying to decide whether to stay Deer Valley or Park City and want to have some facilities closeby).
Thanks so much for your help !
