Comments: 

We took a close look at the mountains around Cache Valley today.  We did not see any evidence of avalanches on the West mountains.  However, there were numerous natural avalanches in Shumway and Brushy canyons in the Wellsville range.  All avalanches  occurred on North facing slopes and started at elevations between 7500 and 8500 feet elevation.  Crowns ranged from 100s to 1000s of feet wide, the wides in upper Shumway Canyon.  We could not see the runout zone to see the extent of the damage.  There were no other slides that we could see on the rest of the range.
