Mount Thompson

Featured photo of Mount Thompson

Mount Thompson is located in Banff National Park in the Waputik Range. It is situated southeast of Peyto Peak at the northern end of the Mistaya River Valley. The spine of the Continental Divide is less than 5 km to the west of the Mountain. Mount Habel and the Wapta Icefield are to its immediate east. The Peyto Glacier cuts across the northwestern footing of Thompson. The scenic Icefields Parkway passes to the east, and Thompson can be seen from the highway, but is best viewed to full advantage from Bow Lake. Mount Thompson is named for Charles Thompson who was climber in the Lake Louise area at the turn of the twentieth century.
