COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, Utah – Officials with the Utah Department of Transportation are implementing a sticker program for ski resort employees and residents in Big and Little Cottonwood canyons to ensure their vehicles are ready for winter driving conditions.

Vehicles that pass the inspection will be given a sticker allowing them to bypass field inspections when weather road restrictions are in place.

UDOT officials said 5,000 stickers will be available and will help improve safety and mobility in both canyons.

Inspections will be held in January where participants will be able to have their vehicles checked to make sure they comply with snow tire and chain requirements.

Employees/canyon residents with two-wheel-drive vehicles must bring chains and any vehicle with snow tires worn past 5/32nds of an inch will not meet the requirement for a sticker.

Interested parties can apply here but UDOT officials said the link will be turned off once 5,000 applications have been received.

Inspections are scheduled to be held at the UDOT Cottonwood Maintenance Shed at 6601 South 3000 East in Cottonwood Heights on the following days:

  • Wed., Jan. 8, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. / Last vehicles checked at 4:45 p.m. (Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, Brighton employees)
  • Fri., Jan. 10, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. / Last vehicles checked at 4:45 p.m. (Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, Brighton employees)
  • Sun., Jan. 12, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. / Last vehicles checked at 4:45 p.m. (Residents)
  • Tue., Jan. 14, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. / Last vehicles checked at 4:45 p.m. (Residents)
