The scenery is wonderful, but the road is a bit winding and not the widest. It would be ok for a small RV, but the bigger and longer rigs will cause the people on the road behind you to cuss at you a bit. There are turn-outs, etc. Lots of picnic areas and some camping spots. The ski resorts have year-round activities. And it's 10-20 degrees cooler than in the valley.
