    I am planning on crossing the Rockies this winter by car to get to LA, and I've never done it before. Will I be okay?

    Has anyone got any advice or tips?

    I've never crossed the Rockies in winter, but I did so in spring April, and there was definitely new snow when I was there.

    Even in spring, the worst snow I experienced was in Colorado, and it was still fairly light, but there were still plenty of accidents.

    I'd advice you getting a four wheel drive, as the added traction is a real benefit. Even then, you still may need chains if roads are really bad.

    A few other tips I can give:

    - make sure you have chains and know how to install them properly.
    - take emergency supplies in case you get stranded during a storm.

    Good luck!
