Yeah, SLC is good. No it's great actually. A crazy amount of mountains all within 25 minutes drive, the best, most consistently light snow in the US, and alotta convenience of a mid-sized city.

Well, not sure what shape you're in but generally, you don't wanna hammer all-out on every ride, especially early season. Basically, you ride moderate tempos and distances early in the season and...

That is true though there are some car rental agencies that claim to offer it as optional equipment. Sucky thing is u get price gouged on 4x4's this time of year. Moral to the story? Take a shuttle.

Insane. I drove into Tahoe via 50 on Saturday the 12th and left this past Saturday. Couldn't believe what a difference it was and they're still getting dumped on with more on the way.
