Mount McBride from Buttle Lake
This peak is found between Wolf River and Buttle Lake. It is a broad summit which formerly had a glacier on the NW side. There is a steeper ESE face. The Ministry of Environment has an automated snow pillow measuring device on the west side at about treeline. Their web site shows 'water equivalent of snow' graphs for this site, which is listed under the heading 'Wolf River'.

It is clear from the shape of the mountain why Mt Rundle has been referred to as 'the Mt McBride of Banff'.

Name Notes: Sir Richard McBride (1870-1917), an early Premier of BC, has two mountains named after him, as well as a community (SE of Prince George). This mountain is one, and Mt Sir Richard in Garibaldi Park is the other.
