Lowe Peak Professional Review and Guide
"A corn-skiing mecca. That is what Lowe Peak and neighboring Rocky Peak become when spring hits the Oquirrh Mountains and warm, sunny days are followed by below-freezing nights. When that consistent corn cycle engages, grab your skis or splitboard and head to Ophir Canyon, pronto! A hike-in-your-ski-boots approach over dozens of creek crossings keeps things interesting, but the trouble is worth it as both mountains sport massive southeast-, south-, and southwest-facing headwalls and bowls that catch the morning sun, which softens the snow into al dente corn so you
can carve crescent curves for thousands of vertical feet. If conditions are prime, you can easily link both peaks together for an epic late-season day. As is always the case
with touring in the Oquirrh Mountains, private property is everywhere, so obey all
NO TRESPASSING signs."
