    Best route to SLC 70 or 80?

    I'm on my way to rally from MA via a stop in NC. I stopped for the night in Coumbia MO . I was gonna take 70 as it looked good going through the CO Rockies but so far 70 is the pits🙈
    Any suggestions out there?
    Thanks

    Jog up to US 36 and tke it across Kansas and eastern Colorado.

    I drive from Kansas City through Salt Lake City once a year, and frankly both routes blow. Of the two, I generally go with I 80 though. Not much of an improvement really, but some.

    We have been on sections of 70 between Denver and Glenwood Springs and it was surprisingly nice.
    36 across Kansas seems to be popular and you can probably make good time.
