Is it possible to drive to Park City with a small rental car using I80 when it snows? or is their a park and ride that I should use?

if you have a good bit of snow driving exp then yes it can be done ... I 80 has long stretches of downhill straights with 30-45 degree turns at the bottom .. inexperienced folks get too much speed and cant handle the turns .. there are frequent fatalities on this road... heading back to slc from pc is worse than driving to pc from slc .. there are no park and rides to pc from slc .. there are several transporter services canyon transports is the one that first comes to mind Canyon Transportation Ski Shuttle Home Page

edit; was thinking I made this drive sounds worse than it is ... with normal snowfall you can drive this road. its a six lane road so if you need to go slow to feel safe there wont be a bunch of locals on your ass. if there is a big storm however this road can be rather treacherous especially coming from park city to salt lake as i stated earlier...

Thanks for the info. Not sure if your familiar with it, but I have done the I70 drive from denver to Keystone, Breck many times in the snow so I have some experience. No pro by any means. Do they keep the I80 plowed and mag'ed pretty good? Its my first time to Utah any info helps

yeah obviously as a main trucking through way to wyoming and into colorado they try to keep it as nice as possible ... with colorado experience i dont think this road will toss anything at you that you havent seen before .. just same old thing keep it slow keep good distance between others etc

im not sure if you have them in colorado but theres a tire place here called les schwab .. if you buy chains from them you can return them for full refund if unused .. there are some instances when that road will have chain advisories
