Both Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon are seeing increased traffic after an overnight snowstorm Friday night.

The SR-201 bypass road was temporarily closed Saturday morning for avalanche mitigation, but has since reopened.

However, the parking lots at Alta Ski Area are expected to be full by 8:30 a.m.

The traction device requirement was also in effect, but was lifted just after 8:30 a.m.

Travelers should expect delays up to an hour.
