Safe Highway all the way. Just check the weather and avoid driving in snow storms.

The only part of this road that might be tricky is what is called Ash Fork Hill. Its 13 miles from Ash Fork to Williams and is very steep. If you just take your time and stay as far to the right as you can you will do just fine. For road conditions dial 511 from any phone.

Done this trip twice. There will be snow and ice about and it was cold in comparison to being down in Las Vegas. Williams is quite high up from LV so expect adverse conditions in places. Wrap up when out and about in Williams in January 2009. It's a good base for visiting the Grand Canyon.

Well, you could get snow and ice, but then again you could get sunshine and blue skies. The Southwest is in the midst of a drought, which has brought mild winters over the past few years. Just be sure to keep an eye on the weather to give you the best idea of what to pack, and if in doubt about driving conditions, just stay put somewhere with a cup of hot chocolate.
