Skier Drew Petersen laughs with friends as he waits for the bus in Little Cottonwood Canyon on Tuesday. A big winter storm that moved into the area Tuesday made for slick roads across the state, causing numerous accidents as the snow began to pile up in the mountains and northern valleys. According the KSL's Grant Weyman, the snow will keep falling well into Wednesday. Forecasters are predicting the northern valleys could see 2 to 6 inches of snow, 4 to 8 inches on the Wasatch Back, and 10 to 18 inches in the northern mountains. Once the storm clears out, high temperatures will be near freezing on Thursday and Friday, and near 40 on Saturday and Sunday.
