Amarillo to Las Cruces in mid Jan

I know it will depend on the weather at that time, but wondering if there are any other reasons to pick say; 60- 70 vs. 27-380-70? Conditions of the roads on both routes? Either one especially difficult in terms of the grades etc. Thanks!

Why not take I 40 west to Albuquerque then I 25 south to Las Cruces? A little longer but 4 lane all the way. I've traveled that route in a 43' DP with a toad.. No issues. One Caveat.. January can be a tricky weather month.. My experience is to look for a weather "window" and make a dash for it..

You can also come south to I-20 and go across to Las Cruces that way. Take I-27 south to Lubbock it will change to US 87, stay on it to Big Spring then I-20 West to I-10 around Van Horn to El Paso to Las Cruces. It is a little over 600 miles going this way.

Thanks! That is actually the route I'd like to take if the weather permits. I'm just trying to have an alternate ready in case of what I hear can be fairly common weather issues on from Amarillo to Albuquerque on 40 in mid-winter.

Thank you, that looks like a pretty good option as well!
