This is the highest easily accessible ski peak near the Bow Hut along the famous Peyto-Bow-Wapta ski traverse in the Canadian Rockies. It is largely a large snow dome.

Many older sources have an elevation or 3203 meters for this peak and locate the summit on a large snowy area. However, the more recent BC Basemap TRIM data shows a high point of 3161 meters on a rocky outcrop on the southwest side of the summit vicinity, and a recent trip report has verified this on the ground. It is possible that glacial melting has removed 40 meters from the summit of this mountain.
