This peak gets its name from its resemblance to its big brother in Switzerland. Although it is one of the lesser of peaks on Thompson Pass the Little Matterhorn is a esthetic looking peak seen easily from the Worthington Glacier TH on the east side of the road.

Getting There 

For winter access it is best to go up Gulley One. This area can be very hazardous due to avalanches and snowmachines.

The other option is to go up the steeper School Bus Gulley. This is also a good option in the summer with a shallow river crossing and minimal bushwhacking.
