    Just to Nevada or anywhere out of Utah? Makes some sense if you limit people from going to other states as a rental car company. I think they don't want you using the rental car THAT much (even if you get unlimited miles) and limiting you to in-state as a general rule (obviously Utah itself is still huge) would reduce usage and risk of things happening to the car.

    Actually, now that I think of it, we did have some issues in DEN picking up our car. I think I screwed up on the time I selected for when we'd pick up the car and we missed that pick-up time. They gave away the original car we were supposed to get (RAV4 AWD), but we got an Infiniti AWD SUV instead, so that was fine.

    I don't think the airport rental companies in Denver or Bozeman said where we could or could not go. Though in Bozeman they did ask if we planned to do any off-road driving and mentioned it was not permitted.

    Interesting...the one time I had a rental car from Enterprise the plates on the car they gave me weren't even from the state where I picked up the car. Would be interesting if they say you can't leave the state when the car itself isn't even from that state. Plus in NJ I can be in 6 or so other states within about a 3 hour drive.

    Reading that other thread makes it sound like it varies a lot even within a particular rental agency. If it says you get unlimited miles, I would have never even thought about seeing if there were state restrictions.

    Last winter I rented a 4wd, 4dr Nissan Frontier truck at Seattle airport for a good deal. IIRC they asked where I was going and I said Whistler, Canada and they said no problem. I've rented vehicle from SFO and drove to OR, NV and CA with no problems.

    Bozeman I'm guessing they expect that many rental cars will leave the state, as a decent percentage of people flying into Bozeman often go to Yellowstone, the majority of which is in WY, not MT

    I know when I rented in Bozeman in the summer of 2016, that Avis didn't even tell me that I couldn't take the car out of state, and the majority of the 1500 miles I drove that week were in WY and not MT

    things are looking a little better today. a foot this weekend for the cottonwoods, and now they are saying the ridge will only dominate for 7-10 days before breaking down. fingers crossed. ideally i get to ski powder next weekend in new england, powder in Montana 12/16-19, powder in Utah 12/20-23. wishful thinking. hope's the root of fantasy.

    Not to burst bubbles but they need feet of snow to cover the rocks. But who knows. I go every year at this time and surprise storms have dumped feet instead of the inches forecast. A mountain forecast is good for maybe 4 hours before. I've been there when 3 inches was forecast that morning an 18 fell. Last year at this time thunder snow stuck us in the restaurant for a while. Either way they are going to open so anyone with prepaid tix, like our group will not be able to cancel. Let the grooming begin ;(
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.
