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. This vehicle features leather seats, heated front seats, all-weather rubber floor mats, large sunroof, tinted windows, and a backup camera.
The car is outfitted with A/T tires (awesome in both snow and mud) 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 5 days or longer, then delivery is free. Verify pickup/drop off locations with at the time of vehicle request.
Cargo space is good and easy to access 34.4 cu-ft and 74.7 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. Rent with confidence, few vehicles will handle winter conditions better and are equally suited for ski season.
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.

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.
This was my first time renting a car through Turo. Truthfully, the Turo part of the experience (the online transaction) was about the worst I've ever experienced online. But that was all Turo and no reflection on Stephen. The Stephen part of the experience was top-notch. Stephen was totally communicative. The car was just what he said it would be. It was perfect for a ski trip. I couldn't have asked for more from Stephen.
I was up and running in no time flat - flying into SLC. Much much quicker than the car rental agencies. The Subaru was quite good in the snow and extreme winter conditions. I had to drive late into the night in a storm and was never worried at all about traction. Stephen is quite easy to work with and there were no issues the entire trip.
Stephen and his car were an excellent experience. Information for pickup/drop off was very clear, concise, and timely. The car itself was also perfect for our skiing/boarding needs. Stephen replied immediately to any question or comment and always seemed readily available. Great experience.
