Spring over the mountains

Recommended Posts

We are planning a trip from Portland Or to Upstate New York in the Spring. We will be taking 84 from Portland to Salt Lake City then 80 to Cheyenne Wy. Anybody  have an idea of when the mountain passes are typically free from traction tire or chain requirement? We are thinking on leaving in late March. Thanks all.

I know in Colorado, chains are required to be carried from Sept 1st to may 31st.  I did some quick googling, but couldnt find any date restrictions in utah, california or wyoming.

Chains are relatively cheap.  I always carry a set with me in my motorhome as well as spider bungie cords.  Haven't had to use them yet, but there have been a few times i thought i might need them.

THanks: the other are the same. I will be getting Autosocks not chains. A friend of mine had a chain break and the damage to the coach was unreal.

Approx. 15-20 MPH is maximum safe speed with chains.
