The Summit of Zoa
A gentle summit located 1.5 km northwest of Falls Lake near the Coquihalla summit. The broad summit plateau is mostly subalpine terrain. The SE ridge is a popular ski and hiking trip year round. There is good skiing off the north side.

Note that the Fairley guide incorrectly lists this summit as being 1250m/4100 ft. elevation
