Family trip - California/Vegas/Utah in the Winter - RV/Car?

Road Trips Forum - TripAdvisor -

We are a family of 4 including 2 boys ages 9 and 12. Trip starts in San Francisco and ends in Las Vegas. Boys would love to ski for 1 or 2 days (beginners level). I like the idea of mixing our trip between to big cities (San Francisco and Vegas) and small towns and National Parks.

I was planning to rent an RV from San Francisco but I was told that this is not a good idea to go to Yosemite or Death Valley by RV due to high probability of snow/ risk on the road.

So, I am considering:

a) change the route a bit (where to stop between SF and Vegas instead of Yosemite and Death Valley)

b) renting a car to go from San Francisco to Vegas. Pick RV in Vegas to go to Utah

So, I would love to hear suggestions!!!!!! Thanks a lot! Below was the first draft

We are using miles for the air tickets, this is the reason for the crazy flights!
