(KSL TV) Four snowmobilers are safe at home today after getting stranded this weekend in Summit County.

The men were near Table Top Mountain when their sleds got stuck in the snow, possibly due to an avalanche.

At least one had a cell phone and was able to call for help.

Crews spent several hours looking for them. A UHP helicopter spotted them early Sunday morning and was able to pull them to safety.
