I'm really looking forward to working at Deer Valley in Park City, Utah this winter season. I will be driving on I-80 almost the entire way. I have lots of experience driving on I-80 (coast to coast), but it's been during some relatively safe driving conditions. Driving from Chicago to Park City the last week of November, I know there's some real potential for hitting driving hazzards. I've driven on I-90 and I-94 in some bad conditions, but got through that with some patience. If I buy snow tires before I leave I won't have enough gas money to get there.....I'm wondering if anyone has made a similar drive during a similar time? Are highway closures frequent during this time? I'm giving myself 3 days to drive there. I've driven to Bryce Canyon from Chicago in 2 days before (which is a longer drive), so giving myself an extra day buffer zone for weather will be enough I hope?
Any advice about working at Deer Valley would be welcome too. I've heard lots of good things about the resort, both in person and online. Since this will be my first season there, I'm getting the company provided housing, and will have one roommate. The housing manager described the rooms as small, but I was wondering if anyone out there knows first hand just how small. Rent is fairly cheap anyway, so I really can't complain...but just curious.
I appreciate any feedback.
