Thanks to Kevin Altheim for adding this peak.

Mount Peechee is located southeast of Mount Girouard in the Fairholme Range which is located on the east side of the Bow Valley and Canmore. There are no official routes on the peak but the Fairholme Range is off limits to public access due to prescribed burns for the massive Mountain Pine Beetle infestation, and to protect a valuable wildlife corridor.

It was name by George M. Dawson in 1884 after Piche which was transformed into Peechee by White Man. Piche was a First Nations guide who led George Simpsom through the front ranges of the Rockies.
