    Wow, great question. No matter which way you choose, be prepared for TONS of weekend traffic, thanks to all the fresh snow up there. I live off HWY 50 and usually take it all the way up to South Shore. Taking 89, you may run into issues with snow on the roads, and road closures because of the rain and snow we are having now. You have to have chains, even if you have 4 wheel drive and snow tires too. I would take 50, good luck! I'm heading up next week, but on a weekday morning hoping to avoid the bumrush!

    Yep, 80 to 50 is by far the fastest way to get up there, but yeah, there'll be lots of traffic getting up there. Shame you can't be on the road RIGHT NOW... If you were, you'd probably be there by 5.
