Name Notes: The name comes from an event when a white horse ran away from the homestead of pioneer Fred Olds. Someone remarked that the horse-shaped snowpatch on the mountain must be the missing horse.
There was mining activity in the 1890s to high on the mountain.
A made-for-tv movie called "High Ice" was filmed on the mountain in the 1980s. There were exciting scenes of drama on the peak. The Darrington high school gymnasium was used to construct a set of snow and cliff.
Finally, in the late 1990s, a Bulgarian hermit lived in hovels dug into the mountainside. He broke into cabins for food. Residents tolerated him for years, but finally got a professional tracker to look for him when he began vandalizing.
