on my recent trip to CO i was really lucky to be able to rent an Escalade from Hertz, without paying extra age difference fee!!!! and i got a great deal on it; 4 days for 466 (including a full tank of gas). Also the Escalade was brand new with only 3.2 miles on it when we got it!!!!

edit: we are all under 25 drivers

killclimbz That was Utah, they operate a little differently in Colorado evidently. I was in there renting a car while I was having my old one in for insurance repair. There was a couple in there who absolutely could not rent a vehicle because they were under 25. Had the credit cards, license, everything they needed to rent, except their age. I believe they were saying the same thing about renting a car in Utah, and the answer they got was basically "tough". That is why I was giving you the heads up.

baldylox Enterprise will, but there is a $20/day surcharge. I used them last time (they gave me a canary yellow convertible beetle in Utah).

I'll call around, thanks!

killclimbz Hey cifex, call around the rental places and make sure you can rent something from them at all. I know a few of the rental places like Enterprise, won't even rent to someone under 25. Regardless of what you want to rent. At least it was that way two years ago. Make sure you can get something. Otherwise you'll need to use CME or something like that. It's not cheap either, but a lot less than a rental for a week anyway.

If you are able to find a vehicle, a fwd car should be fine. Ask around and see if any of the places give you cars with snow tires. That should be all you need. Snow tires and FWD are better than a SUV without them. If not, make sure they supply cables or chains, just in case. Doubt you'll need 'em but if you do, you'll be glad they are there. I think my first 8 years out here, I just drove a FWD car with regular tires on it. Never needed chains and drove in the crappiest conditions. Of course I slid around more than I would have liked and once I could afford snow tires I realized that was the ticket.

baldylox No. I built it last year. Cut my old Floater in half figuring I'd find an opportunity to use it at Tuckermann's Ravine.
