Explore The Iconic Pfeifferhorn Mountain & Get Expert Tips & Advice From Park City’s Best Adventure Media Company
Park City People, a media company specializing in action sports photos and videos, launched a new photo report on backcountry skiing the Pfeifferhorn NW couloir. The article features essential information on the location and access route, the skiing difficulty level, as well as some useful tips for anyone interested in exploring one of Utah’s most iconic mountains. The report is available at https://parkcitypeople.com/backcountry-skiing-the-pfeifferhorn-couloirs/. According to the report, backcountry skiing the Pfeifferhorn is a challenging adventure that requires careful preparation and knowledge of the area. Skiing the couloirs is a mountaineering challenge which requires rope skills and expert level skiing abilities. The report offers useful information on the location of the Pfeifferhorn Mountain, providing topographic maps which show the route from the Little Cottonwood Canyon highway to the Pfeifferhorn Mountain, and locations of each of the 3 couloirs on the peak’s flanks. Since there is high exposure to falling off cliff, mountaineers are recommended to pack the necessary tools to ensure their safety. Readers will also find an overview of each of the 3 couloirs on the Pfeifferhorn. The iconic Pfiefferhorn NW couloir which requires a rope, harness, carabiners, and webbing because it involves a rappel over a 20-foot cliff to complete the ski line. The Pfeifferhorn NE couloir, which is the most difficult couloir to find and ski. This couloir also requires mountaineering equipment because it has a 80-foot to 130-foot rappel to ski. The exposed Pfeifferhorn north couloir which has a 3-foot cliff midway down and may require skiing with an ice axe incase of a fall. The north couloir is strictly a backcountry skiing line which does not require mountaineering tools such as a rope, harness, webbing or carabiners. The Park City People report estimates the difficulty level of these ski descents to be of expert level, due to the high risk of falling off the many cliffs which may lead to injury or death. The report features an extensive photo gallery documenting a full ski trip, as well as a short video. The photo report is part of the media company’s efforts to document some of Utah’s most iconic adventure areas. The official Park City People website also features a wide range of other photo reports and articles on skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking. <iframe width="560" height="315" src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/fvPZSLpQ5Cs” frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media” allowfullscreen></iframe> For more information visit click on the links above or visit parkcitypeople.com
