Mt Lefroy sits directly behind Lake Louise, just to the left of Mt Victoria and the Victoria Glacier. A glacier also clings to its flanks, and the mountain is snow- and ice-covered all year long. I wouldn't attempt a climb to the summit - way too tough for me! Mt Lefroy is a beautiful part of the scenery surrounding Lake Louise. Visit Lake Louise and bring plenty of film!! Mt Lefroy is also on the Continental Divide.
