Ski buddies Mitchell Huang and Taylor Tam were driving through Big Cottonwood Canyon at approximately 9 a.m. Tuesday morning when they heard a woosh and witnessed an avalanche hit a Toyota SUV about four cars ahead of them. KUTV reports everyone in the 4-Runner jumped out with avy shovels and started chipping away but Taylor had a full sized scoop in his car and joined the effort with the heavy artillery. Many hands made quick work and the vehicle was eventually cleared with no injuries reported. UDOT closed Big Cottonwood Canyon at 10 p.m. on Tuesday night for avalanche mitigation and warned drivers to expect significant delays in the canyon when it reopened today. Excellent work by Mitchell, Taylor and every other good Samaritan who stepped in to help. Skiers gotta look after each other, on the mountain and on the roads.
