Mountain driving can have it’s challenges. Be sure you’re ready for the change in weather and altitude. If you’re coming during the winter, be prepared for cold temperatures and the possibility of black ice. In the summertime the drive is gorgeous, but can be hot. Carry plenty of water.
R2 road conditions means vehicles with 4 wheel drive are okay, all others must chain up. Remember all vehicles must carry chains during the winter months. You may also want to carry extra supplies with you in case you get stranded. Extra clothing, some food and a candle can be helpful. Drive carefully, use your signals, and use the turn outs if you are driving slowly.
