Thanks to Ronald James C. for adding this peak.

Epaulette Peak is located in the Mistaya River Valley and within Banff National Park. Epaulette is part of the Waputik Mountains. Epaulette is visible from the scenic Icefields Parkway and its glacier and steep cliffs create a postcard image when viewed from from Waterfowl Lakes. The mountain was named in 1961 for its resemblance to the ornamental shoulder pads worn with military uniforms.
