Wellsville Mountains Professional Review and Guide

"Ski or snowboard the Wellsville Mountains and you supposedly make turns on the steepest mountain range in North America. The Wellsvilles earn this distinction based on the fact that they are narrow (only 5 miles wide) but rise from the Cache Valley floor for 4500 feet to a top elevation of 9372 feet on Box Elder Peak. There are no foothills, which gives the Wellsvilles an intimidating presence, as if the mountains are a giant wall. Of course this means the peaks are a breeding ground for avalanches, but you can find great skiing with tons of vertical assuming the snowpack is very stable. While there are four official access points, Rattlesnake Canyon is the most efficient trailhead for skiable terrain on the highest peaks in the south end of
the range, so it is the only approach described here."
