The iconic “Pfeiff ” is a magnet for climbers and skiers, owing to its elegant shape and prominent position above Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC). It offers quintessential high-alpine ski mountaineering and extreme skiing in the Northwest Couloir. Hogum Fork is remote, broad, and dramatic and includes the classic, steep, and narrow Hypodermic Needle.
