Winter Storm Leads To Avalanche, Crashes Across Utah

A powerful winter storm has left a trail of traffic accidents, power outages and even an avalanche across Utah.

  Little Cottonwood Canyon reopened Tuesday morning, a day after an avalanche closed the canyon and State Route 210.

Meanwhile, state troopers reported more than 200 crashes on highways in the last three days.

A massive power outage hit 12,000 customers Monday morning in parts of Draper, Bluffdale and Lehi. Rocky Mountain Power says it restored electricity later in the day but there were some scattered outages.

A Salt Lake City International Airport spokeswoman says five flights were canceled Monday due to the weather.

The National Weather Service says between 4 and 8 inches of snow could come to the Wasatch Front and mountainous areas could see as much as 24 inches.
