Getting to Cardiff Peak

Follow the directions to Cardiff Pass from the Central Alta trailhead. From the pass, skin west along the ridge. In short order you'll need to throw your skis on your shoulder and boot up Cardiff Peak.

If you're going to places beyond Cardiff Peak (which is very likely; the peak isn't really a destination), you don't actually need to summit the peak. Instead, you can skirt around the summit on the right (north) side.
