Drivers have problems in snow
On Sunday, Sept. 24, the Park City Police Department reported problems on roads at the upper elevations as some of the first snow of the season arrived.
The Police Department said vehicles had problems on Guardsman Connection. The police summoned Park City snowplows. The police also said between 15 and 20 vehicles had problems on S.R. 224 on the route to Guardsman Pass. The Police Department said officers were on the scene for several hours helping drivers.

The route to Guardsman Pass was later temporarily closed, the police said.
