Lake Louise Mountains
Shared by Alberta and British Columbia, this mountain is found on the Continental Divide and directly on the Waputik Icefield. The mountain is 3,272 m (10,735 ft) tall, and was named after the dean of medicine from the University of Edinburgh.
Standing on the Chateau Lake Louise end of Lake Louise and looking directly across these vast waters is Mount Victoria. This prominent mountain forms part of the often photographed scenery that is Lake Louise. Originally named Mount Green, the name was changed in the late 1890s in honour of Queen Victoria.
Eiffel Tower and Eiffel Peak
Located near upper Moraine Lake Valley, Eiffel Tower and Eiffel Peak are separated from each other by a small gap. The tower is a free standing 3,080 m (10,105 ft) tall formation directly neighbored by the slightly taller Eiffel Peak. Both are visible from the town of Lake Louise.
The Twins refers to North Twin Peak, South Twin Peak and Twins Tower, which are located in the upper Athabasca River Valley on the northeastern end of the Columbia Icefield. Twins Tower is a jutting peak that rises 3,627 m (11,900 ft), and is known for difficult climbing. North and South Twin Peaks are adjacent peaks with North Twin being the taller of the two at 3,684 m (12,087 ft) high.
Snow Dome is a mountain that is located on the Continental Divide. The mountain, whose summit is covered entirely by the Columbia Icefield, is known as a hydrological apex, one of two in the world. Water from this hydrological apex feeds three of the world’s ocean (the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic) through various river systems.
This mountain, officially named in 1897, received its name because it resembled something out of the Dolomite Range in the Italian Alps. The mountain is also composed of a mixture of dolomite (a rock that is rare in the Canadian Rockies) and limestone. It rises 2,782 m (9,128 ft) and is easily visible from Highway 93.
A 3,394-m-tall (11,136 ft) mountain, this towering peak is visible from Highway 1 and Highway 93N. The mountain is home to Hector Glacier, a glacier that caused destruction to the Molar Creek valley in 1938 when a large chunk broke off.
