Haha, this video is great. Im sure he just shut down and had them tow him in. I think there was probably some pax that wanted to got for another spin :)

Here in SLC they use a liquid deicer when its real bad, bust mostly just plows, sweepers, and blowers.

Sand is FOD, not to be used on ramps, taxiways, or runways

I've had a similar experience in a hospital-style wheelchair....sliding 360-degree loop...on black ice....I can't imagine what was going through the passengers or crews minds when this happened. Wow
