Drive what the locals drive. Subaru has the best AWD system. No need to stop and put snow chains on the car when canyon restrictions are in place; all-wheel drive will keep you moving. Heated front seats, all-weather rubber floor mats, and large sunroof make the ride enjoyable.
The car is outfitted with a Yakima FatCat 6 snow mount (6 skis or 4 snowboards) from December to April. During that period the snow mount will only be removed on request. The vehicle is located within walking distance of the Midvale Center Trax station. It may be dropped off at a Trax station parking lots (drop off stations must be between 1300 S Ballpark and Sandy Civic Center; Central Pointe may be accessed from red, blue, and green trains) for no delivery fee. Salt lake airport delivery carries a $30 fee unless the vehicle is rented for 1 week or longer, then delivery is free. Verify pickup/drop off locations with at the time of vehicle request.
It's a small SUV so cargo space is good and easy to access 32.0 cu-ft and 57.7 cu-ft with the seats folded. If that's not enough cargo space a roof top cargo box (Inno Air Cruiser 16 cuft) may be rented for an additional $10/day. Don't play roulette with rental companies; know what you are renting and rent what you need for your winter vacation.
As per standard Turo policy, please, no pets inside the vehicle.

I don't see a ski rack in the picture, will the vehicle have a ski rack on it for my trip?
Yes, the vehicle will have a ski rack (Yakima FatCat 6) from December through April.
How do I book a trip with delivery to a TRAX (light rail) train station?
Book the trip with the option to pickup at the "car location". In the vehicle request send me a message letting me know which station you would like me to deliver it to. There is no delivery fee as long as the requested station is on the Trax Blue Line between Sandy Civic Center and Ballpark stations. Many of these stations overlap with red or green Trax lines.
What is TRAX?
TRAX is the light rail system in Salt Lake Valley. It connects Salt Lake City center with surrounding cities and points of interest in the Salt Lake Valley including the Salt Lake City International Airport.

Is there a charge for the ski rack?
No, the ski rack is included in the rental during winter months. The ski rack will only be removed on request from December through April.
Our trip with Stephen couldn't have been easier. He was great communicating, which made the pick-up and drop-off very easy. The roof rack made all the trips to the mountain with our gear a breeze. I would recommend renting from Stephen!
Stephen was an awesome host! The car was waiting on us when we arrived with a detailed message of location and parking paid for... I would highly recommend his automobile for the SLC area especially in snowy weather
Stephen was bery personable & easy to work with. His 2006 Subaru Forrester was meticulously maintained & clean as a whistle. I enjoyed our business transaction so well I've now booked with him again in April 2017. Great job Stephen!!
