White Pyramid is located in the Mistaya River Valley within Banff National Park. Glacier-covered White Pyramid is situated along the spine of the Waputik Mountains one km southwest of Mount Chephren, two km west of Chephren Lake, three km north of Howse Peak, and four km south of Epaulette Mountain. When viewed from the scenic Icefields Parkway it creates a postcard image next to pyramid-shaped partner, Mount Chephren, which was originally named Pyramid Mountain. In 1901 J. Norman Collie named White Pyramid in contrast to this glacier-free neighboring Pyramid Mountain which appeared darker in summer months.

Refer to Selected Alpine Climbs in the Canadian Rockies by Sean Dougherty for climbing information on the exposed icy arete of the East Ridge of White Pyramid.
