Plows Clear Roads in Utah's Cottonwood Canyons After 20-Inch Snowfall

More than 20 inches of snow fell in areas of northern Utah on February 3 and 4, the National Weather Service said, causing roads across the high country to be placed under travel and traction restrictions by the Utah Department of Transportation.

Footage from the department shows some vehicles stuck on the roads, and plows clearing the roads of snow.

On February 4, requirements that all vehicles traveling in the region be outfitted with approved snow tires or traction devices were lifted, and parking areas were opened through Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon.
