In all seriousness, I was about to post the same thing about taking the Delta or Air Canada Expressway to and from Phoenix (or open jaw out of Las Vegas, but that might significantly increase the rental car rate). It is a guaranteed straight, quick shot well above any blizzards on the Great Plains.
If you are lucky enough to avoid blizzard road closures anywhere on your roadtrip in either direction, north of Cedar City, UT, you should spend all of your time in Las Vegas!
Flip the itinerary, and fly into Las Vegas - rent the car there - and return it to Phoenix. Will save substantially on the airport rental fees. I did a Denver to Phoenix road trip a few years ago for that exact reason. Saved about $200 in fees on the rental by returning it to Phoenix airport, instead of Denver.
