I-94 winter driving

Hi All,
Any info is highly appreciated about going down Las Vegas using I-94 from Manitoba via I-29 to Fargo and then I-94 up to Montana turn south to I-15 to Utah to Las Vegas. First time to do this, this coming March 6 . We're planning to attend the FMCA convention @ NM and also want to see Grand Canyon, then back home on the 30th. Do we really need to tow our car? Thanks.

The Mountain West Directory shows one crest on I-94 just east of Butte that has 6% grades (with the eastbound descent having some curves that require extra caution)

You can encounter spring snow storms as far south as I-40 (friends have been snowbound on I-40 in Williams, AZ in April because the road was closed)

Hi Ho: That is a lot of driving! My wife grew up in Winnipeg (more specifically Wildwood Park in Fort Gary) but hasn't been back for a long time. We live in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. Anyway, we have traveled most of the roads that you suggest.

The first of March is a little early in the year and you could have snow. If you watch the weather and allow plenty of extra time you should be ok. I learned in flying our little plane to Canada that having extra time for delays is the secret to beinig safe and having a good time.

I would pull the toad but that depends on what you plan to do. We have left ours at home a few times and wished that we had it--never the other way around.

Good luck, Dirk
