, also known as Assiniboine Mountain
, is a pyramidal peak mountain
located on the Great Divide
, on the British Columbia
border in Canada
At 3,618 m (11,870 ft), it is the highest peak in the Southern Continental Ranges
of the Canadian Rockies
. Mt. Assiniboine rises nearly 1,525 m (5,003 ft) above Lake Magog. Because of its resemblance to the Matterhorn
in the Alps, it is nicknamed the "Matterhorn of the Rockies".
Mt. Assiniboine was named by George M. Dawson
in 1885. When Dawson saw Mt. Assiniboine from Copper Mountain
, he saw a plume of clouds trailing away from the top. This reminded him of the plumes of smoke emanating from the teepees
of Assiniboine Indians
