We're planning to travel to Boise from Seattle around Thanksgiving. Airfare seems kind of pricey for a 8 hour drive, but I am concerned about snow. I have no idea what mountain passes and elevation will be. We plan to leave around 11/22 and return 11/29. MApquest has us travelling from Yakima on I-82 and then merging onto I-84 in Pendleton Oregon until we hit I-184 in Boise. Is this the best route? What kind of terrain will there be? Should we concerned with snow. I drive a front wheel drive Saturn. Thanks in advance!
If you fly on Southwest Airline it would cost you100 per person roundtrip. Since you will be leaving tomorrow it would be too late to get it for that price. Going on I-82 then to I-84 is the fastest route that I know. By the time you leave from Seattle there shouldn't be any road problem in Idaho and Oregon should be ok too.
