The Pfeifferhorn Professional Review and Guide
"The Pfeifferhorn is perhaps the most iconic peak in the Central Wasatch. It used to be called the Little Matterhorn due to its similar appearance to the Matterhorn in the Alps. But everyone has been calling this aesthetic peak the Pfeifferhorn, named after Charles Pfeiffer, who headed the Wasatch Mountain Club in the 1930s. In 2013 the US Board on Geographic Names ofﬁcially changed the name to the Pfeifferhorn. As for skiing? This mountain is a beast and one of the most sought-after ski-mountaineering experiences in Utah. A long approach from the White Pine trailhead, steep climbing below the summit, and expert-only descents, including the rappel with-your-skis-on Northwest Couloir, await. Crampons and an ice ax are essential gear, as well as a
harness, two to three full-length slings, carabiners, and a rope."
