Lake Peak is a mountain with many names. The USGS map marks it as Thunder Mountain, while the Wasatch Backcountry Skiing Map refers to it as No Name Peak. But these days many backcountry skiers and guides prefer the term Lake Peak due to its proximity to both White Pine and Red Pine lakes, so that is the name I use here. This 10,718-foot high point is actually part of the Pink Pine Ridge that connects to White Baldy. While not a true summit in itself, Lake Peak looks impressive enough from afar to be a magnet for powder seekers. Excellent skiing and snowboarding is found on the north side into Boulder Basin, while the signature line is a descent down Lake Chute that goes from the top all the way to White Pine Lake. Touring access starts from the White Pine trailhead, while Snowbird skiers can easily traverse from the resort’s Gad Valley.
