Seattle to Logan, UT

I'd like to leave out of Seattle next spring and ride to Logan, UT.  When is the earliest time one can expect the roads to be clear of snow?

It will depend on which roads you are using. Interstates and major U.S. and state highways are almost always plowed during and after snow storms. But there are roads over passes that are closed for the winter. For example, southeast of Mt. Rainier, Hwy. 410 is closed in the winter, but U.S. 12 is open. You will have to check on state DOT websites to confirm. I think that mid-April could be a good time to leave Seattle, but be prepared for rain/snow at any higher elevations. And if a storm blows through you might have to wait a day before continuing your journey.
