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. Leather seats, heated front seats, all-weather rubber floor mats, and sunroof make the ride enjoyable.
The car is outfitted with snow tires and 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 hatchback so cargo space is good and easy to access 22.5 cu-ft and 52.4 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.

Snow tires or chains
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.

This was my first time using TURO and it was a terrific experience. Stephen met us at the airport which was very convenient, communication with him was no problem, The car handled beautifully, it was clean and really helped to know it was both equipped with a ski rack and had AWD. Definitely recommend this car!
Amazing first experience. Car was easy to find, had everything I needed, and got me where I needed to go. Stephen was great at communicating and giving detailed instructions, so everything was a breeze. Would highly recommend!
First time user of Turo and will definitely be returning. Stephen made the pickup and drop off very convenient. His car was as described and everything ran very smoothly. Very much appreciate everything, Stephen!
Stephen was prompt at being at the airport watching my flight, I had to wait maybe 2 minutes for him to pull up, that is so much quicker then working with someone at a car rental desk. He was very quick and responsive to any of my needs along the way. He has a plan in place to make dropping off at the airport very convenient.
This was my first time to Salt Lake International Airport, and I was to leave the car in the Economy lot which was a wonderful process Stephen has in place, however I got a little overwhelmed cause I was running on a schedule, and realized upon arrival you really do need to take the shuttle buses and they run every so many minutes, but there is a few more stops they make once you get on, and then its a little drive back to the terminal that put me in rush mode when I pulled in and realized my timing, so please allow yourself that time 20+ minutes more so you can comfortably not be stressed.
This has nothing to do with Stephen, Just wanted to make someone else's trip pleasant if going the airport route.
Stephen's car drove excellent. I took it to Moab and had no issues whatsoever. It handled very well and was very clean. I also picked up the car at a Trax station that was convenient to access from the airport. The car was ready and waiting. I didn't have need of the all-wheel drive but I think it would be very handy in this area depending on the time of year.
Wonderful trip with Stephen's Subaru! He was excellent with fast and thorough communication for pickup/ drop off instructions at the airport, as well as tips and recommendations. The car itself is great! Clean, easy to drive. A perfect trip. Would definitely book again when in SLC! Thank you, Stephen:-)
Car was great. We were up in Park City and Snowbird, and got a little snow, so I was glad to have the AWD and the ski rack (why I was interested in Turo in the first place). Stephen was very communicative, and made me feel comfortable renting for my first time with Turo. He was also helpful in trying to figure out solutions when I lost the key to his car while skiing. Apart from losing the key, it would have been a perfect experience.
