Thanks to Ronald James for adding this peak.

Mount Saskatchewan is located in the North Saskatchewan River valley of extreme northern Banff National Park. It is situated prominently along the North Saskatchewan River Valley and can easily be seen from the scenic Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) at Alexandra River Flats. The sheer north face and only glacier on Mount Saskatchewan are also a familiar sight to hikers at Parker Ridge. To its south the Alexandra River separates Mount Saskatchewan from Mount Amery. Its position between the Alexandra River valley and Saskatchewan Glacier valley gives it great local relief and 1102 meters of prominence. In addition to Mount Amery, other notable mountains surround the Saskatchewan massif such as Castleguard, Andromeda, Athabasca, and Cirrus. The mountain was named in 1898 by J. Norman Collie for its position at the headwaters of nearby North Saskatchewan River. The west ridge is the normal climbing route.
