Knoxville TN to Winston-Salem NC in December

This is part of a longer trip (Hot Springs AR to Durham NC for Xmas with coastal route home) but researching this section. Have done the Interstate 40 Route and the Interstate 40/81/77 Routes more times than I can remember.

I am researching Interstate 40/81/26 to Johnson City TN. Then US Highway 321 to Boone NC and US Highway 421 back to Interstate 40. Looks interesting. Good idea or not?

We are 38' pulling a Jeep. Experienced mountain & curvy roads driver. And if its snowing we would just wait it out in Knoxville.

If it were me Id stick to I-40 rather than travel any other road in the mountains during December unless you have some other reason to go into Boone.

Living in Asheville, that would be a good scenic route in my mind. It doesn't snow that much here in December and it is easy to avoid. That being said, I did get caught by an unusual December snow storm in Winston-Salem a couple of years ago. I-40 was a long linear parking lot. Ended up spending a night with my niece in Clemmons.

We like to travel the secondary roads in lieu of interstates when we can. Recently ran US 441 from Dillsboro, NC to below Lake City, FL. Enjoyed that drive much more than being on the interstates.
