TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies have reopened the road to Mt. Lemmon, but they say those who wish to go up the mountain today should use caution and watch for snow and ice. 
 
Deputy Renee Carlson with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that motorists could still encounter snow, ice and snow removal equipment so it is best to use caution when traveling to Mt. Lemmon today.
