Best route fron Cheyenne to Las Vegas

If I was to take I80 from Cheyenne to Salt Lake City and then I15 to Las Vegas how much of it is Mountains and how are the roads. I won't be going that way until Sept.
Thanks for the info.

I80 is good road with a few long climbs.

Once you get down into Salt Lake City you are pretty much done with mountains. 80 is pretty steep downhill just before SLC.

It's relatively flat from SLC to Las Vegas.

If you're spooked about the run down from Evanston to SLC, you might consider branching off to I-84 just after you cross into Utah proper, and take that down into Ogden, and then I-15 south. I-84 is a very nice drive, long sweeping downhiller's with absolutely no worries, you could do it on a skateboard.

I use a "shortcut" to avoid SLC ...

  • South on US 40 just before Park City, UT
  • West on US 189 at Heber City ... this takes you to Orem, UT where you can join I-15 into Las Vegas ...

There is a short stretch of "mountain driving" where I-15 follows the Virgin River in north west Arizona ... nothing serious but there are some short stretches that require your attention ... there was a construction project on this section in early May .... it is probably finished now ... you can check the UT DOT website for the status when you travel.
