    I go the way I go as I like avoiding Rutland. The Brandon Gap is generally also a decent way over the mountain and usually not bad (although the western side of the gap is getting pretty bumpy and on the list to be re-paved after the winter).

    Lincoln Gap road is the only major road I know of in the area closed in the winter.
    I also agree this is the way to go. Queensbury, NY is also part of the Lake George area and has bunch of outlet malls, but the lake is a few miles north.

    The fact that we are THE connector state between NYC and Boston and there are still many many miles of 84 and 95 that are only 2 lanes is mind-boggling. I have lots and lots of complaints (not just for those highways) but anyone could look at a map and figure out that those highways need to be top-notch for capacity.

    I hate driving through CT when I have to go to the Boston area for work. Depending on the time Im driving, Ill sometimes use the mass pike all the way to the ny thruway. More miles but less headache and the time difference can end up being minimal when you factor in CT traffic through the 84 corridor.

    I may try this the next time I have to visit our corporate office in Mahwah. I've tried every other possible way through Connecticut and they all stink. Thankfully I only have to head down there 3-4 times a year.

    I know at least 6 ways from the Northway to MRV. They are all about the same distance and take the same time. Surprisingly, going thru Rutland takes no more time than the alternate routes, especially if you take the hospital short cut to avoid the Rt 4 lights. One advantage to Rutland is cheaper gas than you will find on the other routes.

    Rt 4 to Rt 3 to Rt7 to 73 is a good alternative. Just look for McConnell Rd off Rt 7 a short distance past Otter Valley Union HS, it saves having to go through Brandon with the 25 mph speed limit. There is a service station on the NE corner.



    If the weather is good and you are heading to Mt. Ellen or MRG go 22A to 74 to 30 into Middlebury. Then Rt 7 to 17 and over the App Gap.
