FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Two Northern Arizona University students were on their way to hit the slopes Friday when the winter storm turned Snowbowl Road into an icy trap.

Christina Fletcher and Megan McLaughlin are originally from California, and one of them has put chains on their car only once.

"The goal is to make it up the mountain safely," said McLaughlin.

Freezing temperatures did not help the process, but they did eventually get them on.

"I was about to give up," said McLaughlin.
