Hello! We're planning on driving to South Lake Tahoe from the Los Angeles area before Christmas. We will actually spend Christmas in the SF Bay Area but wanted to show the kids snow first. We're planning on leaving at night to take advantage of the having the kids asleep through most of the trip, but I know we're missing out on some great views. We're never taken 395 before and never any driving trips through snowy conditions, any tips on what the drive is like? narrow roads? a lot of curves? the best places to stop and get gas? what's it like at night? enough or not enough lights to see the road? Thanks in advance (I'm kind of nervous about the drive).
