"He wasn't dressed for the conditions or for winter recreation," he said, describing the man's attire as including a light sweater, jacket and loafers.
Neither skis nor a snowmobile were found nearby. "We have no idea how he got there," Lowther said.
Mountain rescue personnel, assisted by helicopters, retrieved the body. The remains were turned over to the state Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
Lowther said there were no obvious signs of foul play or physical indicators of the cause of death. It also was uncertain how long the man's body may have been on the peak.
Low temperatures on the mountain recently have been in the teens with a chill factor dropping the "feels like" temperature to near zero, according to the National Weather Service.
Lowther asked that anyone who may have information on this case call Weber County Sheriff's Office at 801-778-6600.
